    [STAY AWAY FROM IT!] It is a virus/malware wrapped up in a utility to make your PC run faster.

    There are a few things you can do to speed up your computer. Do a soft rebuild of it. Take off the Operating System and put it back on. This clears out all the little things that accumulate on your computer over the years. You can upgrade your computer to run faster by add more ram. You can get a new computer.

    You can't increase the speed of your computer by adding software to it. An analogy, you have a truck and it has boudlers in it. Some big (operating system, virus scanner) and some small (iPhone update checker). Each stone slows down your computer, er... truck. Now you come across this huge boulder which says it will make your truck run faster. You put it in. What do you think will happen? It will go slower! More weight, slower moving. The problem is that it was a trojan boulder with car thieves inside. They'll steal and then ransom your truck. Stay away from that boulder. Instead, see if you can't offload a boulder or two. Maybe dump them all out and repack your truck. While you're at it, maybe get a longer bed, or a more powerful engine. Maybe even a new truck.

    Thanks Craven. What makes it sad is the company shows the Logo's of CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC News and FOX as if they are promoting the product. I can not say that I have ever seen any of the News People touting it. If the New People were down playing their product, wouldn't you think they would take legal action against them using their Logo's?

    PS How does one do a Soft Rebuild, never heard the term before nor do I know how to.

    Anyone can copy/paste an image on a web page. They news corps can't know every single instance of this.

    They make money from you, and will need more money later, plus learn things from your computer and lets you see lots of great ads.
