Regcure scam

by boringgit / October 12, 2007 1:45 AM PDT

Saw an ad for regcure the other day, advertised fro only $9.99! Well only $10 dollars, I`ll give it a try. After I had entered my credit card info I get redirected to another site, paretologic, saying I had been billed $40.
Yes I know I`m sucker No 1 falling for this scam, but for everyone else you have been warned.

report it as fraud, and see what can be done to stop new charges on the card + possibly get your $40 back

By the time lesson 1 is learned, it's all too late. However you may want to go here...

Lesson 2, don't repeat lesson one.

If you need good tools and free to boot..Just ask here, I mean, "" right? Plenty of goodies, plus many other sites with FREE great security software or great paid for versions too.

Regcure really took me to the bank
by somsnlee / August 16, 2009 2:40 PM PDT

I tried to buy regcure without reading CNet forums first. True the webstie states the cost as 9 and some change but charges you closer to 50. Then, i tried to pay using paypal and got an error message from safecart. SO stupid me i gave them my credit card info as I am desperate to get my comp working again and now I have paid them about $100 for an item advertised at $10. Back to the website for help, no phone number to call for help. GREAT. Paretologic is a lousy company to do business with.

Worthless porduct
by Fred058 / September 24, 2009 8:20 AM PDT

My computer had error problem 1719 (Windows Installer not working). I "googled" the error for solutions and RegCure popped as able to fix the error. I ran their scan and Regcure said I had many problems (300 or so) which cold be fixed by the purchase of the product. I purchased it, ran the scan, and RegCure supposedly "fixed" the errors. I still had error 1719. I ended up having to reinstall Windows and in the process of re-installing my programs - I re-installed RegCure (as I had paid for it). Two days later, I received an E-mail saying I had too many Installations and I must purchase RegCure again (fat chance!) and the year subscription of the product is disabled.

Lesson learned - The product does nothing to fix what it advertises and is a waste of money.

I've been using this product for several years. It really helps my computer run faster. As a matter of fact I just bought a new subsription. I believe for the price you paid you get several products. They each have a product key# you need to enter. They should have emailed these to you with your reciept.

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
