Hello , has anyone used PC Booster to clean up a computer that has become slow, inclined to freeze, and generally a pain to use?

  If yes then what result obtained. many thanks. Tb

IMO registry cleaners do not speed up pc's and can cause more problems than they solve. If you wish to use one CCleaner (free) is as good as any. There are lots of reasons for slow pc's. Look through the helproom thread's for Fruitbat's excellent advice.

I have 'trailed' a number of so called PC booster programmes, and as a fair judgment they do not do anything more than a general clean-up will not resolve.

If you want to try a 'booster' programme, then there are a number on the internet for free. Have a look at the majorgeek.com website, but be warned, that any programme that interferes with your registry might bring later concerns, especially if you are not sure what you or the the programmes are doing.
