Opinions always abound...specifically, why do you ask about this program?

Do you have a problem that you need help with?

 

IObit products are adware intensive.

Almost all products that claim to 'speed up', 'do registry repairs' and are free, are well known

to either install adware, cause popups and will harm your computer. Some will scan, announce they have found

hundreds of problems and then ask for money to repair....a scam.

 

BC never recommends any registry cleaners because of their known potential to cause damage and are unnecessary.
