Review and Giveaway of ChicaPC-Fix

As much as I want to avoid being the stereotypical girl, I have to admit that computers intimidate me.  Yes, I need one to feel connected to the world, but it can be a pain to maintain.  Usually I get decent performance out of a laptop for a year or so.  If I'm lucky.  And yes I'm smart enough to know that I need to back up my files and clean up my hard drive but shopping for a portable hard drive or performance enhancing software can be as intimidating as the computers they protect.  Sometimes it just feels easier to buy a new computer although that's certainly not a frugal much less green solution to the problem.  Enter Chicalogic, the makers of ChicaPC-Fix, a software program that enhances your computer's performance and for which you don't need a computer science degree to figure out what its doing to your PC.

Some info about ChicaPC-Fix from the website:
  • Fast, safe and extremely easy to use software
  • Instant downloadable software for Windows
  • Extends the life of your PC
  • Helps avoid a computer crash
  • Fix and cleans computer errors
  • Speeds up a slow computer for improved performance
  • Created with a women’s needs and work flow in mind
  • Compatible with: Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 2000
ChicaLogic let me try out ChicaPC-Fix so that I could review how the software works.  It was easy to use my activation key to download the software to my PC and I immediately ran the program to see how messed up my computer was.  To be fair, I bought this laptop in August but, between my daughters and I, we've driven it pretty hard since then.  When I ran the software, it picked up over 600 computer errors!  ChicaPC-Fix categorizes the problems so you know what they are.  Mine were mostly empty registry keys and its just a matter of clicking "fix" tabs to correct the problems.  The software automatically creates a backup file of how your PC was before the cleanup so you can restore it if you want.  I was a little irritated by the fact that I kept running ChicaPC-Fix and kept getting empy registry key errors although the number of problems dropped with each run.  I went to the ChicaLogic site which has a comprehensive FAQ detailing all of the whys and hows of the software, easily found what I needed, and my question was answered.  (Empty registry keys are common because Windows opens them when you open a software program on your PC.)  ChicaLogic also offers email and phone support if you need it.  As an added bonus, the ChicaLogic website features great articles covering all sorts of computer-related technical topics.  Between the software and the site content, ChicaLogic offers tools to "translate" technology and media so that no one has to struggle with them.

My verdict is that ChicaPC-Fix is a great protection software program--not just for women but for any non-techies out there.  It would make a great Christmas gift for someone like this.  I'm thinking of buying the software for my mom who loves to get online but is wary of technology in general.  ChicaPC-Fix is easy to use and increases the life of your PC.
