3/23/2010 5:40:25 PM Have had many different problems since getting this computer. Had a PC-Tuneup that came with it when I first got it, since program expired (could not afford to re-at-time) have had many many speed,stability,and performance, problems on not only my laptop but also my desktop. My desktop is the one I have really really had major problems with. I have just installed this, and I will see How this helps. More to follow as time goes on and I have had an opportunity to see if your progam HELPS OR NOT! Thank you.

9/30/2010 9:08:23 AM usually i'm pretty decent with keeping my machines in order but this one (dell laptop vs my pc) has been way more difficult to use, treat and disinfect. it's required several reformats to clear it out and start fresh, and I've reformated my pc 2 times in 5 years. :(

8/13/2010 7:38:35 PM At the moment, I'm not happy with PCMatic either. This is the 7th time I've downloaded this software and it still will not load correctly to my lap top--it's making the matter worse.
