IF YOU DOWNLOADED A FREE TRIAL OF SPEEDYPC PRO SOFTWARE AND THEN PURCHASED THE FULL VERSION OF SPEEDYPC PRO, A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS.
A Federal Court authorized this website. You are not being sued. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
• A lawsuit has been filed against SpeedyPC Software (“SpeedyPC”), the maker of SpeedyPC Pro Software (the “Software”). The lawsuit alleges that SpeedyPC deceptively advertised and sold the Software as capable of enhancing a personal computer’s speed, performance, and security by detecting and repairing harmful errors, threats and viruses, but that it does not and cannot perform all of the functions advertised. SpeedyPC denies these allegations and any wrongdoing. The lawsuit is called Beaton v. SpeedyPC Software, No. 1:13-cv-08389, and is in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. You need not live in Illinois to participate.
• The Court decided this lawsuit should be a class action on behalf of any person living in the United States who downloaded a free trial of the Software and then purchased the full version of the Software between October 28, 2011 and November 21, 2014. The full class definition is detailed below in Question 10 in the FAQ section.
