11/13/2010 1:35:52 PM If you keep up with the maintenance on a weekly basis you can have a system that will last many years. I need to upgrade some hardware but other than that this has been the best computer ever.

11/23/2011 10:38:02 PM Computer is great although it runs slow probably because there are too many proceses and programs. I just upgraded the RAM to 2.5Gb from a 1Gb.

2/23/2013 6:43:01 PM WOW!!!!!! It really works. I can honestly say that this is the very first time a software product does exactly what it says it will do. My computer has been sooooo very slow during the last few years. For the past couple years I have been listning to your ads and finally tried it. My computer is many times faster now than before. No joke, it would take over 5 minutes to open up my web browser before PC-Matic. Now it takes just a few seconds. Thank you so very much. I'm just rambling now, but it is because I'm so happy --- You actually saved my computer. I don't have to buy a new one...

10/6/2009 3:02:47 PM It works well, and provides me with information that I need. It works well with my business and I look upon it as a faithful friend. There are no problems that I know of. At times, it seems a bit slower than average. I did delete trash and scam, and that speed it up considerably.

11/30/2010 12:13:24 AM One of the last generation of Dell PCs to use the ATA/IDE bus and AGP graphics cards - but it does have a built-in controller for 2 SATA drives. Next years model, the Dimension 8400, upgraded to SATA and PCI Express, a P4 3.06 Ghz CPU, and slightly better sound and video cards. Both models cost over $3000 new.

Ever since I have been unable to exercise any administrator functions, even when I login as administrator in safe mode. Consequently, I cannot adjust the start programs. Do you have any advice?

Now that I downloaded and run your PC Matic program, I will soon find out what effect it has on the performance of my computer. I'm looking forward to a more than satisfactory result, in which case I shall rate it as "very satisfied."

There is a problem when I buy a computer from a pawn shop of if it was given to me, Dell do not owner me for the computer being in my possession. Dell need to rethink this sistuation. and let the new owner register there new computer in their name. Larryl

8/9/2010 9:03:51 AM I wish I knew more about how to keep the performance up. It should be faster, and I am always complaining about how slow it is. It can't seem to do more than a few things at the same time. I can't do anything while it is doing the virus scan for example because it is slow and "hangs up".

If it wasn't for poor income I would throw the computer out my drafty window and but both a new window and a new computer. I think this statement should be able to answer this question.

3/4/2016 5:11:35 PM When we ordered this computer they failed to put in the rewrite DVD drive along with the CD rewrite drive. They mailed it to us and we did it ourselves, but it never worked correctly. In the beginning it was an OK PC, but over time it began to give me trouble. Probable some was due to malware and/or viruses I was unaware of. Hopefully with PCMatic this will get better.

1/23/2011 11:36:55 PM It is being treated at the moment as it has a redirect virus. Dell has been working every day, except Sunday (today), since 1-18-11 trying to delete it. They just re-installed the OS Drive and the Re-direcr virus is back. My computer has been updated over the years but still has been especially giving me problem in the year. I need to get another computer,like a laptop, leave this on as part of a Network, after I bring it up to speed, for the Guests and the kids to play on.
