Many computer users spend hours of frustrating searches on the Internet looking for diagnostic and optimization tools to speed up their computers or to make the more reliable. In many cases, they will come across websites featuring products that claim to do what they want. However, once they go through the trouble of downloading, installing, and using the software, the software performs the job as advertised - at least up to a point. The software will tell them what is wrong, and will have a "fix it" or "optimize" button. When the user clicks the button, he or she will see a notice that the software must "be registered" before the action is performed. Registration usually involves the payment of money. This book will show the users which programs truly do it for free. Using this book will save the reader many hours of searching, downloading, and installing programs only to find a demand of payment. The author has done the research and legwork to find the free gems that will help the reader.
