However, this is an undesired program that shows predetermined issues and solutions for false errors, so you can fall for the scam and believe that all the problems are related to your device and pay for the full license of this “assistant”. But the payment for 30 days of all functions costs you at least $70 or can go up to $210 for a 120-day subscription.
