PC Pitstop vs. Dell Automated PC Cleanup

PostBy: delawarecoalburner On: Sun Mar 15, 2009 3:09 pm

I found a link on this forum to PC Pitstop and I really liked the site. They are recommending there software for $39.95. I think it is a yearly subscribtion. Have also tried Dell's program - free trial. Not sure which way to go? Any suggestions? Thanks!

What are you trying to achieve? Generally speaking there is many free tolls available usually better than anything you pay for.

I guess I'm just trying to keep my computer(s) running/working like when they were new - before I downloaded and installed all the junk out there on the net. I've run the free programs at PC Pitstop and made most of the changes/updates that they recommended but they indicate there are things that I can't easily fix - but they can for only $39.99 :)

DslReports has a great security forum.

These questions and more answered.
Before you drop your cash check out some other programs.
Most of the good ones are free, then if you get the paid version give you more features.
They have lists of the popular programs.
There is also a to do list if you get infected.
