Had a look at the site.

Despite the similarity in the name to another well known site. The appearance is very similar as well.

All the way at the bottom of the first page in very fine print you will find>

Thought I'd take a look around the site. Didn't take long to find what I was looking for. Under the "Steps to Tuning Up Your Computer" section:

Use a Scanning Program: If you have tried everything else and your computer is still running slow, then you can use a scanning program that will scan your entire computer and look for problem areas. The program will also be able to fix anything that has gone astray with your registry leaving your computer as good as, if not better, than new.

Computers being used as door stops may be on the rise soon.

Nice find FlannelBack.

Sure does drop what ever if any creditability the site may have had right down the tubes.
Surprised they did`t include any links to some snake oil too. :P
