    Hi, I tried cleanfix and it’s working fine, my computer was faster than before after installing it. It’s a good software and I can suggest it to download, sometimes you guys are wrong.

    Hi, Registry Cleanfix is obviously a scam and I have been bitten. Due to their veiled threats that Windows is going to close down if the spyware is not removed, I purchased the tool for £37 plus £9.95 for UNLIMITED UPDATES! There was a box for SPYWARE at £9.95 which I unticked. Imagine my surprise when I was billed £58.90 instead of £46.95. The extra £11.95 was supposedly for the facility of a Registry Backup prior to scanning! What a shower! I’m into my bank this morning!
