    Sometimes it tells you exactly how to fix things. Sometimes yes they try to sell you somethnig to fix it. But it a good way to know what is happening on your computer before you have a tech look at it ;-)

    I'm pretty much computer illiterate. Does this PC Pit Stop just scan and tell you what's wrong, or does it correct what's wrong? Do you risk it erasing something you might need? Do you have to pay to correct whatever is wrong?
