In the first step, you will be shown an option to install PCKeeper Antivirus which is optional.  After that, several offers are shown such as myPCBackup and Amazon 1Button App; you can choose to skip these offers if you feel they are irrelevant to you. PCKeeper is compatible with following OS versions: Windows Vista/ 7/ 8.

Interface

Interface of PCKeeper Live is quite decent, pleasant, and modern. The well-organized menu options and icons make it reasonably intuitive for everyone’s use. All the main menu options are nicely aligned in the left window pane with each option having a self-explanatory icon. These options are mainly divided into four main sections, namely – Human Assistance, Security, Cleaning, and Optimization. Main window for any selected menu option is shown in the middle pane and the support details (contact numbers, send message, and start live chat) are shown in the right pane.

Pros

  • PCKeeper gives you the advantage of getting the scanned reports of your system scrutinized by their certified experts who provide the best solutions for the problem areas in the system. You can call the technical experts, send them a message or even directly talk to them via live chat
  • This application acts as a savior not only when concerned to your PC’s data but the PC itself. In case your PC gets stolen, then PCKeeper’s unique ‘Anti-theft’ feature tracks down the location of your PC and as soon as it goes online, starts generating reports which are sent to you by email
  • If you share your computer with someone else due to professional or personal reasons, you might want to keep some of your data private; with ‘Data Hider’ you can hide your confidential data by simply creating its account
  • Shredder is also a very useful feature which helps in removing personal files that are no longer in use and need to be deleted permanently lest anyone else can recover them

  • With Optimization tools you can edit context menu that applies to various segments of your PC or even choose the programs that you want to be started on system boot

Cons

  • No documentation or Help File available
  • The trial version restricts most of the operations (including cleaning junk files, Data hinding, shredding and more) and instead redirects to Activation window. These features should be allowed for at least few times to check out their capabilities
