IMO...these tools for specific Windows errors...are just registry "cleaners/optimizers" in disguise that go in and edit the registry, whether such is necessary or not.  Considering that Windows rarely has the exact same cause for any given error...I would not entertain the idea of bothering with these purported fixes.  You can always get a clue by looking at what it is that you are supposed to download...then reading about what it purports to do for your system.

 

FWIW
