  1. I have been using PCPitstop for a number of years and like its products; however, recently I started doing a search for the ‘best’ registry software.

    I found nothing on PCMatic in the reviews. Further, when I ran a free scan from the ‘best registry software’ with similar traits to PCMatic, I got over 1,000 erros shown after just having completed a PCMataic session.

    How do I make a decision on whether to renew my subscription to PCPitstop or purchase a ‘best of the best’ registry program?
