Thanks folks

Good - yes, it does what it is supposed to do.

worth the money? - no - there are free options - there are few pieces of software out there that don't have a freeware alternative, even if the alternatives are not as polished.

safe? No software is ever guaranteed to be safe on every machine.

Get a decent registry cleaner (RegCleanXP), temp cleaner (crapCleaner) and defragmenter (diskkeeper lite) and you have all that you need to keep your machine maintained.

Together with a decent AV program and a firewall to monitor trafic, you will be fine.

I use the PC Pitstop free scan on occasions,which seems to do a fair job, but as DS suggests, there are programmes out there that do a similar job and are free to use.

Save your money and try the freebies, at least you will not lose anything if they do not come upto your expectations.

I tried to download the free version of Pitstop but my computor came up with a message to let the program install an activex component .Is it safe and would you allow it?

i believe it is a scan software and without it you will not get the working product
