✔ Best Answer
Best avoid it, see these for example:

Always best to google around before installing something.

In fact most magic computer fixers mess up more than they fix, even the legitimate ones.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Derek, this is one I hadn't seen. Probably is just a registry cleaner. Wasn't planning on trying it. Folks ask so I like to know.

I've never come across this software either.

I don't think I would pay for it myself though. Plenty of free offerings which are tried and proven.

Interesting though to read through the first link Derek provided where a rep has come on to defend the software and say they are a bunch of microsoft gold certified developers then further down the page defend the softwares functionality by saying it only deletes old and broken files or removing what's left of uninstalled software.

It seems legit enough to me but would still stick with what I am familiar with personally.

Best avoid registry cleaners because they can remove valid entries (prep entries for example).

If you must have one the safest is the one in CCleaner, although even that got it wrong for me once. As a tool it might have some merit in the right hands but just letting them delete everything they find is unwise.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
