Like many pc users, I get asked how do I clean up my pc and speed it up, are online software offers safe. I don't recommend anything because I really don't know. Even on Geekstogo page I see an advertisment for speed up your pc. Is that just an advertisment or something I can pass on?

As you are discovering, many of the same problems that exist out in the real world also exist on the internet. To survive, you got to learn how to be careful.

Just use software you need, not what you think you might need.

There is no miracle software to speed up your PC.

True just use what you need to use. PC does need some maintenance like a car, for me for start keep it cleaned regularly, use Ccleaner for start.

Never mess with Registry Cleaners your only asking for trouble you do not need and it never makes a difference to speed.

I do for one tend to like one software Tune-up Utilities 2014

For one the function to disabling programs when they are not being used and disabling start up programs if there is no way of doing it within a program ( hate to have to do it in the MSCONFIG) .
Gives you performance suggestions.

Again it's always what you know enough of before doing or trying something on a PC yourself.
