Advanced PC Tweaker

  thumbscrew 23:04 13 Mar 2009

Anyone any information about a tool called Advanced PC Tweaker? I downloaded it because,after reading about its claims, it sounded really helpful. After my first trial scan it claimed to have detected well over a hundred problems, which put me in mind of those phony programs which "discover" a multitude of so-called non-existent threats and pretend to remove them.

Even if it works, they seem to want $34.95 before it'll do anything. This pricing gem is hidden from view extremely well in the small print, add this to the site repeatedly trying to start the file download despite my not clicking a download button and it's ticking several of my not with the proverbial bargepole boxes.

Many thanks everyone, I'm extremely wary of these programs that claim to cleanse and then incredibly find hundreds of so-called "Threats", especially when I've just done a Superantisyware, Ad-Aware and Spybot sweep and they've all been clear!
