Red Dog Media PC Utility Kit Flim-Flam Shell Game New York City, New York

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I needed a computer cleaner (for registry keys) and was searching for one that was free. I came across PC Utility Kit. It said "Free" however, it took me to a page where I had to pay $29.97, just to get out. The next page had an 888 number and I called it to tell them I didn't want it. The man I spoke with claimed that this product was Microsoft and that he was a Microsoft representative. This product may be Microsoft compatible but that's not the same thing as BEING Microsoft!

I told him I didn't want the product and he became cold and distant. He said everything would be alright but after we hung up, my computer was working worse than before I spoke with him. He asked me for my email address and I believe he did a 'trash dump' on my computer. Later, I found my bank had been charged $39.94!!!

I got the name of a really good and genuinely free uninstaller from my computer person (Revo Uninstaller) and I removed the PC Utility Kit and the trash dump off of my computer. I also got another really good registry cleaner called FixRegCleaner. I had to pay for this one, but it works well and I don't mind having to pay for something that works so well.

PC Utility Kit is a lemon and the company a flim-flam shell game. I don't recommend getting involved with this company that went by the name of Red Dog Media. I see they have changed that name to Boost By Reason. Don't walk, run!
