Never heard of em, I would also suggest being carefull with the download if you choose to try it out. sure it may send you info on how to fix your machines current problem. But the program may also send "additional" information about your surfing habits, personal settings, and some other stuff, you might find yourself on the recieving end of a mass email marketing snaffu. Its bad enough that a lot of sites can already get quite a bit of info from you by use of cookies. Unless you practic "safe" surfing, such as naming your pc "pc user" suggested by dkerr ( what a great idea, that never dawned on me) and delete your internet hitory dat files.
