Turbo Your PC

Is this fair dinkum?

#1 Reason Not To Buy A New Computer

Do you have a slow Computer? Do Not buy a new PC or call a PC repair company. One simple tip is saving people Across the globe Thousands Of  dollars

Your computer is not made to last long that’s a fact. Most people do not like to hear this but the reality is, PC retailers and software companies need a reason for users to keep buying upgrades otherwise they simply won’t make money.

But now that the secret is revealed, an elite team of Microsoft Gold Certified developers have created a better solution for the average user. It’s a new software that operates using a high performance algorithm to scan your windows PC or laptop. It then identifies and clears out unnecessary files that cause slow performance, all at a touch of a button. Literally anyone can use it and only takes 5 minutes to work.

Many people feel ripped off by not knowing this 1 simple trick…

Many users are even saying that their computer is running faster than the day it was new immediately after using the tool. As one person said “it’s like a Turbo Charge for your computer”.

The people responsible for this want to get it into as many homes as possible, so as part of their strategy they’re giving away their analysis tool for free.  Until  September 23, 2015  you can grab a free copy by clicking here (if it’s still available).

Technical Director John Haines says “Our launch strategy is pretty simple. Give the basic product away to as many users as possible. Once they use it, and see the results – the product will sell itself. They’ll tell their friends, they’ll continue to use it and we’ll see a viral growth effect”

It is even worse than I thought.
I downloaded and installed the software and ran it.

What it does is gets rid of  some temp files, empties the recycle bin, identifies some browser add-ons, looks for broken links in the registry.

When you download it and run it, before it attempts to fix the so called issues you must call a number and purchase an activation key at some unknown price.

I suspect that when a person calls they are evaluated to see if they are an easy mark and then they are given some payment figure

In my opinion it is a SCAM of the worst kind that preys on innocent people who do not know any better

You know, Yahoo should be ashamed of themselves for letting scammers like that advertise on their news page, like it was news.
They even have a pic that shows a keyboard being washed. Like you can fix your slow computer by washing your keyboard!
