I downloaded the PC Matic/Pit Stop and did the free scan. However, since I had to subscribe to the program yearly and I didn't have the money to do that, I used the windows xp home edition sp3 ad/remove software component. But it left everything in the registry. Now I keep getting pop ups telling me that some data could not be saved. Save it somewhere else and do I wish to send a report. What I wish is to have the program out of my computer all together. How do I do that>

I am not sure if the following also belong to them or not


How can I get rid of all this so the pop ups stop popping up.
And now my system restore won't work since downloading this and uninstalling. I keep hitting "next" button but we go nowhere. What have I done to my pc?

Why did you and which program did you run?
The PCPitstop Overdrive test that we often suggest is Free and we prefer to provide manual as opposed to automated repairs, try running PCPitstop Overdrive and then use the uninstall facility to remove all PCPitstop data, let us know how you get on, for the record PCPitstop Overdrive can normally be left on your system after use and used as a useful maintenance tool.

Please Run the PCPitstop.com OverDrive Full Tests

Here's how:

You must use your Internet Explorer for this procedure. (doesn't work so well in Firefox or others). If your machine is running Vista or Windows 7, you must Select IE to “Run as Administrator”. After completing PCPitstop OverDrive you can close your IE browser and re-open it Normally so that you are no longer running as administrator.

Go to: http://www.pcpitstop...pit/default.asp
Click on "Free Computer Check-up" listed below PC Pitstop OverDrive
In the User Login - Click on "Sign up FREE!"
You'll need to submit a valid email address and create your own password, then click - Create Account(button)

Now enter your email address and password to Log in, Select - Scan this system Now!(button)
You will then be asked to download an ActiveX component and allow it to install.
It is safe and does not compromise your privacy.
Follow the on-screen prompts to install the ActiveX and to allow the Full Tests to be run on your machine.

The Full Tests take about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes on most machines.
When complete, a Results - Summary - Recommended Fixes will be displayed.

Please post the URL internet address, from your Results, back here into this Topic Thread so that we can review the configuration and present performance levels of your machine.

Note: During the graphics 2D and graphics 3D testing, your screen will display some rapidly moving objects.
If you are sensitive to visual flashing, it may cause dizziness. Therefore, look away from the screen during that portion of the testing.

After reviewing the results we will be more informed and may be able to provide better recommendations for you to work towards improving your machine's performance.

While PCPitstop does offer a variety of Paid Products, the PCPitstop OverDrive testing is FREE. Please ignore the references to Paid Products. We prefer to provide manual solution instructions that you can apply directly to your machine.

Thanks to rshaffer61 for the PCPitstop instructions :thumbsup:
