PC MedKit Review

Ok, before I go to bed I thought I'd take a look at this new program that was released. This program is called PC MedKit, so I am going to do a PC MedKit Review.

Now honestly, I have tried out wayyyy too many PC Optimization programs lol. But I am kinda excited to check out PC MedKit. You might be wondering why that is. Well... PC MedKit was created by the same company that created the popular "Driver Robot" software. I reviewed Driver Robot a few months back and absolutely loved it. So I have high expectations for this PC MedKit software.

Real quick though, I should probably explain what PC MedKit is for those of you who aren't clear what it is. PC MedKit (appears to be) another program that helps to optimize your PC. This is usually done through cleaning up your registry, your files, etc. Like I mentioned, i've reviewed a lot of these programs. So it takes a lot to impress me lol. Anyway, onto trying out PC MedKit....

I went ahead and downloaded and installed PC MedKit. It was a quick installation, so let's get right to the software.

Upon loading PC MedKit, I'm pretty impressed by how it look. It's got a very high-tech blue look. Also on the left it lists some information about your computer such as the amount of ram, processor, etc. It's got a nice layout.

At the top, you will find buttons that take you to some of the other features of this program. For instance, there is a startup manager, services manager, processes manager, and PC Health.

I was curious what PC Health was so I took a look. It basically has bar charts showing you things such as your current ram usage, CPU Usage, and number of processes. It's interesting to look at.

But yeah, now we come to the Registry Cleaner. This is the main feature of PC MedKit. After scanning my computer with the Registry Cleaner, I was very impressed with it. The Registry Cleaner found a LOT of Registry Errors. More then most other Registry Cleaners found.

Anyway, in all I am pretty impressed with PC MedKit. If you want a powerful Registry Cleaner, then I'd give PC MedKit a look.

Good luck!

PrivacyControl Review

Hey everyone! It's 1AM and I can't sleep. You know what that means... time for another review. lol :). I recently came across this program called PrivacyControl. PrivacyControl appears to be an internet usage tracks remover. So I figured I would go ahead and check it out and do a PrivacyControl review.

Protecting your privacy is obviously something that you need to focus on. Most advanced internet users are aware that when they visit websites, the history of their web browsing is saved. It is generally a good idea though to delete this history. This isn't just to protect your privacy, but also to free up disk space. So how do you go about deleting your usage tracks? You can do it manually, or you can use a program to do it for you. That's where PrivacyControl comes in.

I took a look at PrivacyControl and I was very impressed by all the usage tracks it cleans. Although it's not a full system optimization programs, for it's purpose, it does a great job at it. PrivacyControl will clear a lot of usage tracks, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Messengers, P2P programs, e-mail programs, etc. PrivacyControl does a great job of making sure to delete your usage tracks.

Also... one other thing I liked about PrivacyControl is that it includes a secure erase. This involves overwriting the files it deletes multiple times so that they can't be recovered. If you are worried about your privacy, then that is definitely a must. Great to see it included with PrivacyControl.

Anyway, in wrapping this review up, I'm going to go ahead and recommend PrivacyControl. If you are looking for software to remove your usage tracks, then definitely give PrivacyControl a look. Good luck!

Web Design Mastery Review

Hey everyone :)

I'm getting ready for bed but I came across a really interesting Website Design course online. It is called Website Design Mastery. I thought it looked really interesting, and since I am in the web business, I decided I would go ahead and take a look at Website Design Mastery and give my thoughts on it. Consider this a Website Design Mastery review. :)

Website Design is a very popular topic these days. The bookstores are filled with dozens of books, there are hundreds of courses online, and thousands of videos on the internet. Unfortunately, a lot of this information can be very confusing or just plain inaccurate. Knowing this, I was pretty skeptical going into my review of Web Design Mastery, but, I went ahead and looked through this course.

So... after looking at this course... how do I feel about it? Honestly... I am really impressed with the information that is included in this course. This is not just a simple 100 page e-book. This is a large collection of information. I counted around 14-15 different e-book files all packaged into this one course. This course covers everything. Planning your website, HTML, Web Hosting, FTP, Javascript, CSS, etc. Like I said, this is very in-depth. If you are wanting to learn the in's and out's of web design in just a few pages, then you are going to be disappointed here. But you will be disappointed in general, because there is no way everything can be taught in just a few pages. I'm glad that Web Design Mastery did not leave anything to the imagination.

Another thing I really liked is 12 videos that are included in this course on HTML. All together, it's well over 2 hours of information, and the videos are very useful. The HTML Meta Tags video is especially nice.

Also... one other thing I liked is that this course includes a large number of bonuses. I noticed an HTML editor that was included in the bonuses, also there were 100+ templates, so it's definitely nice to see those included.

But yeah... in all I think this is a really great Web Design course. If you have any interest in learning Web Design, then I highly recommend this course. Good luck!

RegSweep Review

Hey everyone... back for another review! As all of my readers know... I love to review system utility programs. However, I haven't spent as much time lately reviewing these types of programs. But I just came across a program called RegSweep. So I am going to do a RegSweep review.

RegSweep is another Registry Cleaner that has been released onto the market. Registry Cleaners have become very popular these days. It's not easy for a Registry Cleaner to stand out among others, so will RegSweep stand out? Time to find out..

I went to the company website and attempted to download RegSweep. It didn't work. I tried 5 different times, and not a single time could I get it to download. Weird...

So that's going to wrap up this review. One of my shortest reviews ever lol :). I can't really give my thoughts on RegSweep since I didn't get to try it. But if the company can't even get the download link working correctly, I don't think I would trust this company's Registry Cleaner with your system. For now, I'll stick to recommending Registry Winner. You can read my review of Registry Winner here.

Good luck!

Easy System Cleaner Review

Hey everyone. I thought I'd go ahead and quickly do a review :). I just came across this program called Easy System Cleaner. Since I seem to love checking out system utility and system cleaner programs, I thought I would go ahead and check out Easy System Cleaner and give my thoughts on it. So consider this my Easy System Cleaner review. :)

Using software to clean your internet tracks has become more and more popular. There are many different reasons to clear your internet tracks. Perhaps you are worried about your privacy. Or perhaps you just want to free up some disk space. Either reason is important. With that, there has been software released that helps you clear up your internet tracks. Easy System Cleaner is one such software program. So how does it do?

I went ahead and downloaded and installed Easy System Cleaner. It's a quick and easy download and installation. So with that, let's get right to Easy System Cleaner.

I went ahead and ran Easy System Cleaner. Upon loading, Easy System Cleaner began scanning my system for usage tracks to remove. The scan didn't take very long, and so... here came the results.

And the results? Around 1,500 items were found to be removed. I was pretty surprised actually. I usually delete my temporary internet files daily. It definitely looks like I have been missing some areas on my computer when it comes to deleting my usage tracks and clearing up space.

I also noticed that Easy System Cleaner also found some temporary files. These are different then Temporary Internet Files. Temporary files are files that may not be usage tracks, but still are left over from old programs and just sit there taking up hard drive space. I was pleasantly surprised that Easy System Cleaner found some of these.

One more note... Easy System Cleaner also comes with an uninstaller. So you can use it to uninstall programs you have on your computer. I guess it goes with the whole freeing up disk space idea that Easy System Cleaner was built around. Either way, it's a nice additional feature.

Well... in wrapping this up, I recommend my readers check out Easy System Cleaner. It may not have all of the features that a full system optimization program would have, but for clearing your internet tracks or freeing up hard drive space, Easy System Cleaner is a must.

Good luck!

Driver Detective Review

Hey everyone, back for another review. I recently came across this program called Driver Detective. It is a program that helps you locate updated drivers on the internet to download for your computer. I figured I would go ahead and check this out and let you all know what I think. So consider this a Driver Detective review. :)

Managing your computer drivers can be difficult. Not just for those with little experience with computers, but even with professionals it can be difficult. Lately, software has started popping up that lets you update your computer drivers. Driver Detective is one of these programs. So does it work?

I went ahead and downloaded and installed Driver Detective. It was a quick and painless download and installation. Even if you happen to be on dial-up, you should have no problem downloading Driver Detective. The installation file for Driver Detective was only around 1MB.

With that, I went ahead and ran Driver Detective. The first thing Driver Detective did was take me right to the scan. The scan was really quick and only took about 10 seconds. After that, I was shown a list of all of the drivers on my computer and how many were outdated. I had 27 up to date drivers, 8 system drivers, and 11 out of date drivers. I wouldn't have guessed that I had that many out of date drivers.

Anyway, from there the software will attempt to download and install all of the latest drivers that you need. It is a quick and easy way to update your drivers. I really like it.

With that... I'm not sure what else to say about Driver Detective. It's main purpose is to update your drivers, and it does a great job at that. If you are looking to update or manage your drivers, definitely check out Driver Detective.

Good luck!

Supreme Spy Review

Hey everyone! Back for another post... :) And for this post I actually decided I would go ahead and do another review. However this review is going to be a bit different. Usually whenever I do reviews, I do reviews on system utility programs or software like it. This time though, I am going to do a review on a Computer Monitoring Software called Supreme Spy. So consider this my Supreme Spy review. :)

For those of you wondering what exactly Supreme Spy is... basically Supreme Spy is a program that can be used to monitor your PC and track what all happens. This can be very useful if you have kids for instance. Many parents are worried about what their children might be up to on the internet. Software like Supreme Spy will tell them everything that is going on while their children are on the internet.

Now... is something like this okay to use on your computer without your kids knowing? That could turn into quite the debate. But I am not here to give my opinion on that. That decision is up to the parent. I am just doing this review for those that might be interested in this.

So anyway... I went ahead and spent some time with Supreme Spy. Honestly... I was pretty impressed with it. There were a few things I noticed.

First off... Supreme Spy records a lot. Supreme Spy records keystrokes, e-mails, programs used, websites visited, etc. If you are wondering what all your children are doing on the internet, you will definitely get the answer with a program like Supreme Spy and it's feature list.

I noticed that Supreme Spy has the option of e-mailing the logs to an e-mail address. This could be very useful. For instance... if you are at work and your children are home, you could be e-mailed the logs to Supreme Spy and you could find out from work what all your children have been up to. That can be very convinient.

Also I should note, Supreme Spy can take screenshots of your screen as well. So not only are you reading simple logs of what all is going on, but you can also see actual screenshots taken of your computer and what all your children were seeing. It's a much more visual way to get an idea of what all was going on. Very impessive...

Like I said... whether it's okay to use software like this is up to the parent. But if you are considering using software like this to keep your children safe on the internet, I highly recommend you check out Supreme Spy.

Good luck!

SpyRecon Review

Ok, it's time to do another review! As regular readers of this blog know, I usually focus on system utility programs when it comes to reviews. However lately I have decided to look at other types of software to review. I recently came across a program called SpyRecon. I thought it looked interesting so I decided to do a SpyRecon review.

A lot of you may be wondering what SpyRecon is. Basically, SpyRecon is a spy software designed to be used to spy on your children (or spouse). Now... I'm not going to get into the debate on if something like this is ok to use or not. Legally... you can only use it on your own computer of course. But should you use software like this on your kids? As a parent, that is your call. Some parents are worried about the dangers of the internet, and so they decide to install software like this to make sure their kids stay safe. It's your call though since you know your children better than anyone.

So anyway... continuing on with my review. I went ahead and spent some time with SpyRecon. Here are some of my thoughts I have about it...

First off... wow... this software records a lot of information. This isn't just a simple keystroke monitor. Besides logging keystrokes, SpyRecon also monitors login names and passwords, IM conversations, URL's, etc. If you are worried that your children might be up to something on the internet, this software should definitely help you find out what's going on with all of what it tracks.

I noticed some other additional features. For instance, you can have it run secretly in the background so your kids don't know. You can have it run at startup when you turn on the computer. You can send logs with the program to any e-mail address. It also takes screenshots of the screen, so you can see visually exactly how things looked. Like I said... this software tracks a lot.

Anyway... I don't really have much else to say about SpyRecon. It's got a very impressive feature list. Like I said before... I'm not going to get into the debate of if something like this is ok to use or not. That is up to the parent. But if you are a parent and you've made the decision that you need a piece of software like SpyRecon to help keep your kids safe, then I definitely recommend you check this out.

Good luck!

PC Pandora Review

Hey everyone, back for another post, and another review actually! As regular readers know, I usually do reviews about system cleaners and system optimization programs. However, this time I am going to do a review about a a piece of software called PC Pandora. PC Pandora is a computer monitoring software designed to be used on your computer when your children use it. I have actually done a review of a couple other similar programs, but I thought I would go ahead and take a look at PC Pandora and do a PC Pandora Review.

First off... I am not going to get into the debate of if using software like this is appropriate or not. That is up to the parent to decide, and this is something I have mentioned before. As a parent, if you feel you should use something like this then that is your choice. I am just using this review to tell you if I think PC Pandora is a good piece of software or not.

Anyway... I went ahead and took a look at PC Pandora and spent some time with it. First thing I have to say is wow... PC Pandora does a really excellent job at monitoring your PC. If your kids were ever up to anything, I think you would easily be able to find out. I noticed that PC Pandora includes Web Surfing recording, Keystroke recording, Chat Messenger recording, E-mail recording, P2P recording, Webcam Capture, etc. In short, PC Pandora seems to pretty much record everything.

I also noticed some other features included with PC Pandora. For instance, you can make a list of websites to block. There is chat control blocking. You can also password protect the program. Also of course, like most PC monitoring programs, PC Pandora includes a stealth option so that it can run without ever being detected by your kids. You also have the option though of telling your kids up front and not using the stealth option. Also... you can have the reports sent to your e-mail if you happen to be away.

One other note, PC Pandora appears to have really excellent tech support. There is e-mail support, Livechat support, Online help, and an FAQ. So if you have any problems, you should be able to get them sorted out quickly.

In all, for it's use, I think PC Pandora is a great program. It's not something I plan to use, but for parents looking for a type of software like this, I definitely give two thumbs up for PC Pandora.

Good luck!

Podnutz Laptop Repair Review

Hey everyone, thought I would go ahead and do another post. It's really warm out (80's!) and I know I should be outside, but I had come across something interesting online that I wanted to review. Yep, that's definitely a sign that I spend too much time on the computer. :) Anyway, as I was saying. I came across this video collection. It's called Podnutz Laptop Repair. So I'm going to do a Podnutz laptop repair review.

Regular readers of my blog know that when I do reviews I usually review system utility programs or similar types of software. In fact, I rarely ever do reviews for something that isn't software related. But I'm going to make the exception here since I found this really interesting.

Basically... Podnutz laptop repair is a large collection of videos that teach you how to repair a laptop computer. This is useful for many reasons obviously. Perhaps you have a laptop computer that is having some computer problems. Fixing it yourself is obviously going to be a lot cheaper then taking it into a computer store. Maybe you are thinking of buying a laptop soon, and you want to know a bit about how to handle any issues that come with it, that's where this collection of videos comes in.

When it comes to videos teaching you how to repair your laptop, I would normally be a little skeptical. After all, I've seen my fair share of video tutorials on YouTube. Most of them are pretty bad quality. So I was a little hesitant at first about this collection of videos. But I went ahead and took a look.

Anyway, after taking a look, I can say that I highly recommend Podnutz Laptop Repair. There definitely isn't any issue with video quality as the video quality is HD quality. There is also a large amount of videos. This isn't just a few videos. I counted at least 40 different videos. These videos explain so many different topics. For instance, these videos teach you how to replace CD/DVD drives, motherboards, hard drives, LCD Screens, taking the laptop apart, where to buy parts, etc etc. I was definitely impressed by the wide range of topics that were covered in these videos. In all, there had to be at least 10 hours of video.

A couple other great things I found with this package is that there is a Podnutz forum. That is great incase you watch these videos and have any questions. Also, there is a 60 day money back guarantee. So if you end up not liking these videos, you can easily obtain a refund. Definitely great customer service.

In all, I highly recommend my readers check out these Podnutz Laptop Repair videos. If you have a laptop or you are going to be buying a laptop, this collection of videos is a must have in my opinion.

Good luck!
