Improve your PC's proformance

I just downloaded a free programme to locate problems on PC also to improve speed. It was supposed to find and repair damaged files also. I ran a scan on the programme (I think it was called Power Max or something like that) it finished the scan then said my PC had 208 problems, but I needed to pay to have them repaired, is this information likely to be correct, if so are their any free software programmes available or do I have to pay to have the faults repaired, or would it be safe to ignore the said problems

No need to pay, lots of free software to do the same job for free; CCleaner click here Tweaknow Registry Cleaner click here
for starters. I'm sure there will be many more links to follow from other forum members...

Power Max is a complete waste of money,I was looking to replace a missing .dll on my laptop but instead ended up with this crapware on it.It found 1000+ problems with my lappy(98se)and refused to let me uninstall it.I hunted out a cheat from a cracking site,registered the software and then tried its miraculous "healing" properties.It fixed the problems by removing most of the updates/installed apps including MS Office.Having let this crapware do its thing,I then opened MSCONFIG and stopped it from running so I could uninstall it.I suggest you use any other software the PCA members suggest and ASAP delete it off your system.

thanks i already have CCleaner and run it regular, but these problems are supposed to be their even after using CCleaner, should I be concerned?

No, just run the `Issues` tool in CC to deal with registry problems - as Chegs ®™ said, Powermax is just trying to get you to part with your cash.
