You may have seen the commercial on TV about a website called The commercial shows people unhappy and frustrated about how slow their computers are running, and how a website magically fixed their computer problems.

The question on many people's minds is, whether or not the site is legit or if it's a scam. Before answering this question, it's important to understand what the site is claiming it can do.

It's true that problems creep into computers over time as you use them. Some of the problems are caused by us, some aren't. Left unchecked, these problems can add up and cause your computer to slow down or crash.

You can buy programs that have been designed to look for these problems and fix them. One of these programs is called, WinDr (made by Norton). I've been using WinDr (part of Norton System Works) for years and love it. WinDr only takes a few minutes to run and is designed to look for problems in Windows and fix them. By running this program regularly, I can find and fix small problems before they become bigger ones.

There are other programs out there that are similar to WinDr which pretty much do the same thing.

What makes different is that it works over the internet so you don't have to buy and install a separate software program. But it's doing the same thing as WinDr and similar programs ... and you still have to pay for the service. charges an annual fee to fix the problems (although you can scan your computer for free).

So is worth your money?

When you buy a computer nobody ever tells you they need to be maintained, but they do. I think it's important to have a program like WinDr or to find and fix small problems in Windows before they cause bigger problems. I've been running WinDr on my client's computers for years as part of an extra service.

So, if you don't own WinDr and don't want to buy it, consider trying You can try it for a year and see if it's worth another year.
