"My laptop was so slow and got random blue screen error. I didn't know whom to turn to until I came across doofix. The agent Mike connected to my laptop and helped me change many settings of my system. I've never thought it's so easy to get things fixed. Now my laptop runs quite fast. Thanks for your great service!" ---Frank H, US
