I 'm new here , but I'm not new to forums. My PC is slow and I know I don't have any infections. I'm looking for a program to clean my PC. Does geeksto go recommend sammsoft?? When I first visited the site , before logging in, there was a pop up for down loading sammsoft

The popup has been removed. That's strange!

Hello cornfeed.... Welcome to GeeksToGo, :D :D :D

I'm sorry to hear about your issue. We will try to help you resolve this as soon as possible.
Please understand we are all volunteers and we are not here all the time. Sometimes it may be a extended amount of time to get back to you.

If I have the right link then sammsoft is a registry optimiser. We at Geeks to Go do not recommend the use of any registry cleaners or optimisers.

A registry cleaner will not increase your system's speed or performance, and has the potential to break your registry to the point that your PC is no longer bootable. We strongly advise that people stay away from any of the registry cleaners out there. Go HERE to get more information about why registry cleaners aren't needed.


Thanks to Sari for the explanation

As far as I know I have never seen any popups on the Geeks to Go site.

We will need some more information

If this is a name brand system:
Make
Model
Operating System
Age of the computer
Memory Total
Hard Drive Size, How much free space

Those pop ups are not seen by registered members and they are not associated with GTG in any way.
They are just like any you would see on Facebook, Twitter or any other site before registering and sometimes even after. The bottom of the first main forum page states the below:

Thanks Runner. The link has been removed to sammsoft. It was a pop up that greeted visitors. I don't know why Geeks to Go was recommending it to visitors. I Googled sammsoft and it didn't look very good to me. I'm glad it's not a pop up any longer. I don't think it's very good software. What really puzzles me is that it's gone and no longer recommended by Geeks to GO. I have discovered my problem. It was a program I down loaded. I restored to an earlier time and my PC is back to normal. Thanks!! Very weird about that pop up, but I'm glad it no longer greets visitors. I'm going to look around a little!!

If you read rshaffer61's post#3 above, it is clear that GeeksToGo doesn't endorse any advertisements. Turning Pop-Up blocker on from within the IE browser might stop the annoying little buggers from showing up. Alternately, you could use the FireFox browser, with the NoScript addon installed and eliminate almost all pop ups. If the pop up uses a script, NoScripts will catch it. And FireFox also has a built in pop up blocker.
