One would think by now I would be beyond being rooked.  But…no…apparently not.

Have you ever gone to CNET to download something you need or want and when you open it up it is a different piece of software altogether. They make up a banner that says “Download” place it on the order page of the software you need and you click it and voilà – someone else has gotten into your computer.It can be very difficult sometimes to figure out what you should or should not click on.

I have been meaning to bring that up – it is really irritating and now I try to avoid CNET as I believe they are party to this deception as that is what it is.

I have been had more than one with the above but that is not what got me this time. This is a grippe page.

I went to renew RegCure. I have been using them for a couple of years but the last time I downloaded their software it opened up as now being affiliated with Microsoft, which turned me off, and also had added features of looking for Malware (So what had we been using for the last 10 years?) plus 4 other categories which we supposedly needed. I wasn’t impressed. Most of us have taken steps to deal with everything they are trying to bundle. At least I had.

Companies never want to leave well enough alone and I guess RegCure is the same. I liked how they kept the registry in my computer uncluttered and straightened out any issues I may have inadvertently caused with moving files and folders around or deleting programs. Then, when they teamed up with Microsoft of course they would be sticking their nose in all of my other affairs. (Sigh!). So we started out on our new relationship.

The new RegCure was slow. Of course. What did I expect? It now has 6 actions it is doing instead of one.

While surfing the Internet about something or other I was in a forum and it advised that “Geek Tech Tool Box” was Number 1 while “RegCure” was only Number 3. Never heard about Geek Tech Tool Box before and if I could avoid all this extra searching that RegCure was set up for it might be worth switching. So went on a crusade of finding out about Geek Tech Tool Box. I got really irritated with RegCure after a couple of months it was so annoying. I tried it with all the searches employed and also without. Over all it was much slower than the older versions. At least that is how I perceived it now.

So I bought Geek Tech Tool Box to see if I could get something faster.

Geek Tech Tool Box turned out to be the absolutely very same excepting they were not endorsed by Microsoft

Rooked.

So I just used RegCure even tho’ I had bought the Geek Tech Tool Box. I just shut it off.

Then my RegCure subscription ran out so I just switched to Geek Tech Tool Box. I mean I had bought it and all. That was in June, 2013.

When I had bought it they had offered a $9 and something discount, which I did not get when I purchased it. When I complained about it they advised me I had bought a bundled version which gave me a Premium version of their software. Huh???…really?

Rooked again.

Today I got an email from Geek Tech Tool Box advising me that my subscription to their software was due to run out December, 2013 but not to worry as they would automatically debit my credit card for the renewal.

If I bought it in June why would the subscription run out in December – that is only 6 months

Yep, rooked again.

Then the email went on to say if I didn’t want to have my credit card automatically debited I could amend the payment method by going to my account with them. So I did and I amended it and it simply deleted my program and now I have nothing

Ahh… would that be the fourth or fifth time I have been rooked by this Company

So what would you do if you got caught like this? I am simply posting it to this blog and hope that absolutely none of you would even think about dealing with this company

End of Story. Geek Tech Tool Box is not a good Company to get engaged with.

I found the Internet after getting Windows '95. I have never been without it since. I am still amazed and in wonder of the access the Internet gives to all of us besides all the other benefits, like anyone can have an online business. You gotta' love it.

  1. Thanks in favor of sharing such a good thought, paragraph
    is fastidious, thats why i have read it entirely

  2. Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to know a lot approximately this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with a few p.c. to pressure the message house a bit, however other than that, that is fantastic blog.

    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

  3. I have used various types of Registry Repair Software programs. For a while, I used CCleaner, which really is free and it does a reasonable job. There are “paid” versions, but after years of being online, like you, I would hate to calculate the thousands of dollars I have spend on software and hardware. Something convinced me to try Registry Booster by Uniblue and I did that for two years, renewing annually. Then for some reason, I ended up using Geek Tech Toolbox, and like you, we surprised that it had to be renewed to the tune of $29 every six months. For some reason, I tried Egnigma’s SpyHunter Suite, which includes their SpyHunter program. It, too, needed to be renewed every six months for $44, but it has been a reliable program (the Suite) and it fixes your register as well as finds and removed Spy and Malware. I think the reason I switched was because it changed things on my computer, but didn’t mess anything up while it was doing it. (I have found that some registry repair programs actually caused further problems in the past).

    What is annoying me now, is once the makers of Geek Tech Tool Box (whoever they are) were able to take payments from my credit card or bank account through Digital River (not Paypal), they just automatically renewed it without my consent. I suppose their “small print” indicates that they will continue to renew your membership even if you change your mind (which they don’t want you to do). Now I am trying to find out how to get a refund, as I don’t need their software. I am to the point, where I am going to contact the American Better Business Bureau and see if they can help me. Digital River has ignored my inquiry. Geek Tech Tool Box didn’t return my phone call and give no e-mail address to customers. They don’t have a tool free number. I left a message on their phone like they requested, but I guess I am one of thousands of customers and they would rather well more than rectify a problem and give a refund to the likes of me. I must say at the cost of $35 every six months, I am not a happy camper!

  4. Nice post. I used to be checking continuously this
    weblog and I am impressed! Very helpful information particularly the ultimate part
    :) I deal with such information much. I used to be seeking this certain information for
    a long time. Thank you and best of luck.
