Question

Speed Fix Tool

I'm pretty new to computers and mine (bought second hand) isn't running so great. I saw an ad for a tool called Speed Fix Tool that is supposed to "fix" my computer back to when it was new. Here is the link I copied from the top of the page (address ?)

My question...is this a scam? Will it hurt my computer more so than it is now? I use a Dell Inspiron 1720 with Windows Vista laptop.

Grab a copy of ccleaner from here.
https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

Get the free version.

It's a benign gp cleaning tool.

As for your product the scan is free but you have to send them some bucks to get the fix portion.
