Hi all,
I am trying to install the above software(on cover disc) it keeps asking for a serial number?...i have registered on the website...where is the serial number?

product in a box?

When i brought mine several years ago there was a little white book. the serial number is either inside cover front or back. It should somewhere in that book. It written pretty small so beware tyring to type it in as it can be misread eaily.

Are you sure you want to use this product?

The reason why im asking is that the regisrty cleaner is a very over zealous and i remeber i use tohave software conflicts while i tried to install fix it utilites.

I ahvent used it now for at least 3 years. Pc tools spware doctor is a good program to use.

remebr it can speed up the computer and clean the computer but these pograms can be a little long at first and there is a very good defrag on fix it utilites but like i said there cna be conflicts of registry items missing and some software isnt compatible with it and when you eventually install diasble the anti vius and firewall in cse of conflict. After its installed enable these software programs

Ive had the same problem - the on line registration is supposed to give you a serial number at the end - but it doesn't :o(((

Many thanks geeman001

This caught me out too. Looks like a good program to use.

Have you used it yet and if so, how do you find it?

I had the same problem with Fix-It 7 on the CD.
I went to the AVANQUEST.COM website and clicked on SUPPORT. After explaining my problem, I received an E-Mail with a Serial Number. try It !

As explained in the magazine on page 137 and on the cover disc interface, you need to register on the developer's website - click here to obtain your serial number.
