  2. Installed quickly on XP sp3 without need to register.
    I had an older version of this on another PC and found it worked well and very easy to use. It does just about everything you need for PC maintenance.
    This is the Swiss Army Knife of Utility Tools.

  3. As with many of the giveaways, I like to go to the company´s website and see what they say about themselves. In particular, I like to find out a bit more about the company and where they are located. This giveaway seems really suspicious to me, but I should be cautious about this since it is an opinion.

    Their own website says the following about the company:

    YL Computing, Inc is a software design and marketing corporation which was founded in November 2006 and located in:

    9625 West 76th Street
    Eden Prairie, MN 55344
    United States of America

    We are one of the original manufacturers and vendors of our software and related products. Since our beginning we have come a long way in terms of service, products, and technology to offer you the best in tools software solutions.

    Our company mission is to provide users with quality tools software. We offer pre sale support and most post sale support to attempt to keep our customers 100% satisfied.

    If you have any questions for us please feel free to contact us.

    I did a Yahoo! search for this address and came up with a bunch of folks who seem to share the same address, not least of which was http://www.pc-spy-keylogger.com/about.htm which offers EXACTLY the same text in their information about who they are.

    There was also this complaint about an unauthorized charge for the same address, this time listed as Digital River.
    http://complaintwire.org/complaint/Y5gBAAAAAAA/dri-digitalriver-com

    So I then did a Google Maps search and looked at the building, which is labeled for both Digital River and another company called Hysitron, which makes composite materials.

    So I looked up Digital River, which is indeed located in Minnesota and could possibly have an office in this place.

    But then I went to CNET and they reviewed this in 2010 and it has had 1.7 million+ downloads, some favorable, some not, but overall at 4 stars from users and 5 stars from CNET.

    What is my point?
    a) That I am unlikely to download and install software from companies of dubious reputation who potentially lie (or fib a little) about who they are and where they are.

    b) That as I noted for the previous utility software, that because of the risk posed to my computer if this software goes awry, that reputation is all that the company has–do not risk that.

    c) That I am thoroughly confused by the conflicting bits of info I have. So, even though the CNET review was very positive, I am still unwilling to even try the software based on the potentially misleading info and the few really lousy reviews.

    GAOTD folks frequently note that non-users should not generally comment and I would agree if we were talking functionality. But whether or not I can trust the offerer is a big part of that first barrier to entry.
