    This looks like an all-in-one freebie that provides both security and maintenance. Does anyone here recommend it or have any horror stories?
    Also, does anyone know if the components of this program are OEM's of some other company?

    Thanks

    heres a previous thread

    I tried it once but for some reason did not like the "1 click" optimization. it kinda reminded me of SystemWorks and I wasnt sure what each of teh scans did.

    Tried it - initially liked it, then I found it wanted to fix things that didn't need fixing - nothing tragic but I lost interest

    Personally, I would never be happy with a 'one click solution'. No control and no info equals software I wouldnt use

    I use the 1-click part every once in awhile.

    But I only use 6/7 checks. I disable System Analysis.

    Then all is good.

    But System Analysis is a pos option ime.

    I like it, and have it for a while. I like it because you can see what it will "repair" before you do. Not only that, but it provides a decent explanation of the reason for each case. And you can add to ignore.

    The ones that i do not use at all: startup manager, and the memory something. The others i scan and check what it found. It can disable some protections of Spyware Blaster, but once you know what it is- ignore list.

    If you value the ability to see what it repairs, before it does, and a good backup to revert changes, it's very well designed that way. It's very comprehensive as already said. You just have to be careful to read first before repairing, which is a good rule for any program of this kind.
