As anyone within two nautical miles of my condo knows from the swearing. I occasionally get a “Blue Screen of Death." Came soon after I bought this computer from Best Buy. Their Geek Squad said it was an embedded virus, despite running the “better” virus protection they sold me. When it did it again, they wiped my hard drive. Still does it, so I stopped shopping at Best Buy, just wait awhile and reboot, which often gives me a couple of days, sometimes weeks.
Then I found this site on the Internet:
Where you can download a "free" program to fix it. So I downloaded the “free program” and ran it. It said it fixed minor errors, but if I wanted to fix registry errors, I needed to pay. Came to about $68.
I ran it again. Two days later: BSOD.
I’ve run the program, called “Perfect Optimizer,” when I log on. Today I ran it and it found—again—several hundred registry errors which it repaired. On a whim I ran it again. It again found 217 registry errors, though I had done nothing on the computer and wasn’t on line.
I’ve sent them a couple of messages, which they haven’t responded to.
So I conclude this is a rip off fake program. Any computer geeks with better info on the program, please comment.
