Last Customer Reviews: Avast vs MacKeeper

i once subscribed to these services. My Microsoft program became corrupted and I suspected Avast to be embattled with the security provided with Widows. I canceled my subscription and reloaded my operating system NO REFUND AFTER 30 DAYS even though I paid years in advance. Guess what? My cancellation was avoided by Avast. After 20 months, my card is again charged hundreds of dollars. After much effort Avast billing credited my account. Only partially, as one charge for $47.91 did not show on their records. I was forced to call my credit card company and it took 1 hour 27 minutes to finally talk to a representative and get a dispute started. I don't know what the results will be, as I indicated Avast, they have no record of my payment being submitted. SAY WHAT?

I've Used AVAST (PAID) for 3 Years. Just wanted to check out How it stacks up. It works very well most of the time. BUT, it has 1 Nasty Habit. I can be browsing on one tap and a new tab will say NO Internet connection. ??? Or it will Kick U off the Server whenever it sees a change in the connection. Very Touchy. If Anything, it's Overprotective. Oh, and you CAN NOT Use the VPN on Netflix. Otherwise, Stellar!! And Yes, Excellent, Thorough Review.

I've had loads of problems using and uninstalling MacKeeper couple of years ago and I was running fast as hell when anybody mentioned MacKeeper after that. It hurts just to write that name.. Thank you Jude, you really gave it a second chance. What I find disturbing is that MK is teaming up with other software companies in their search for the new market share, I've just got the newsletter from Skylum (Luminar app) where they list MacKeeper with a fantastic deal... I mean, a photo editing software affiliated with MK?! Where's the connection? OK if they offer deals with other photography businesses or educators and what not, but I guess they want to earn money, and MK is maybe giving them a great deal there. Oh well, they're both companies from Eastern Europe, even Clean My Mac is originating from there (me too btw) and they want to cooperate. I just don't feel good about Skylum investing the profit from affiliation with MacKeeper into developing Luminar (which I really like and support)...

As of today, Jan. 22/2020, this is what has happened: My original license was to expire May 2/2020. I buy a new license, today (to take advantage of a reduced price), with an expiry of 366 days (Jan. 22/2021). They have now combined the above 2 licenses and now they advise they will both expire April 30/2020, in 98 days????????? And on top of this, trying to activate the new license, was quite a rigamarole going through their support. I am waiting for a response, and if they do not correct the situation, I will cancel and request full refund.

This turned out to be a horrible product that I'm sorry I purchased. It wasn't on my MacBook very long and resuted in freezing my computer. I attempted to restart my computer over a three to four day period with no success. I then spent 4 to 5 hours with Apple Support having them look at the situation. MacKeeper used so much capacity it created this issue. This is an expensive lesson in getting sales pressure and being lied to about the program. DO NOT IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCE ADD THIS TO YOUR COMPUTER!
