Why should I use PeoplePC Fine-Tune?
Use it to help restore your computer's lost speed and performance! Simply using your PC for normal, everyday tasks inevitably decreases its speed and performance over time. Why?

On top of that, when you remove spyware from your PC, non-malicious but corrupted and fragmented files are left behind. Our Fine-Tune software helps you easily resolve all these issues, optimize your computer's performance and improve its speed. Use Fine-Tune regularly as part of your ongoing PC maintenance, and run it after each instance of spyware removal. It can help you enjoy your computer as much as you did when you first got it.
