BanditFlyer,

I got this software as part of a giftpack with other Uniblue software. In my opinion it's not worth the $29.95 price they ask. I didn't see any noticeable difference, after it was run. No it's not spyware, yes it's safe. But I personally wouldn't spend the money. If I hadn't gotten it free, I'd have been very disappointed. However YMMV.

I have read a couple of "vague" reviews, and the most I got is that upgrading your computer is your best bet, and that his program, as ANIMAL has stated... is not worth it's cost. Here are some reviews that may help:

Screenshots of the program can be found here:

I am against this program because I believe that a hardware upgrade is better than a software program that says it does the same thing.

This might turn into a good post. Keep going.

I've read one post somewhere about it. As I recall it wasn't a real negative post, but it did have some complaints about the program.

My position is that there's so much good, free stuff out there - why spend good cash on what you can do for free.

The last bastion - disk imaging software - even has a couple of free alternatives out there now.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
