While the basic idea seems sound the complete download is only 558 K so it will be sending away to the Internet to scan the computer not a really good idea as you will be creating a back door into the system.

What I can tell you is with a clean install of XP Pro with Office and the necessary utilities and other software as well as all the required patches generally causes about 180 Load Errors which Norton's Win Doctor fixes without out any problems.

I would think that this is nothing more than a opening to sell you something that you may not need or can be done with different tools. I would hazard a guess that if you perform this "Free Scan" you will be told some Horror Stories about all the errors that are on the Windows System and you will be offered a pay for utility which from the looks of this add will work out far more expensive than a similar tool would and one that you may already have should be capable of performing the same job.

If you really want to scan your system download the trial version of System Mechanic from

http://www.iolo.com/downloads.cfm

download System Mechanic 5 and not the Pro version as it only has an AV scanner in it and you can scan and fix your system for 30 days for just the cost of the download, just do not try removing "Duplicate Files" as this will most likely cause more problems that it cures. But everything else should be fairly harmless but like all tools exercise caution before removing anything that you are not sure about.

For Spy Ware both Spy Bot at

or Adaware at

http://www.download.com/3000-2144-10045910.html?part=69274&subj=dlpage&tag=button

with a combination of both of these products fully updated will remove the bulk of any Spy ware that you may have picked up and Spybot will remove on a reboot any that have been loaded and are not removable in a normal Windows Session.

It is legit per say they manufacture their product that sells to customers,but it was founded that your download is what you get with no hard copy,in the beginning their were a lot of unhappy customers about the product download and support.
