My gosh, don't pay for this! This Trashware installed itself for free on my machine from Tom's Hardware while i was downloading Hiren's Boot CD. Popped up three times while the boot cd image was downloading to tell me about "problems" with my computer. Trust me, i know when and where there are problems in my computer - i run a tight laptop.
This is IMO absolute junk designed to prey on people who have no technical knowledge and don't know how to maintain their computers. Instead of this product, i'd recommend just doing research if your computer has symptoms. *Be your own geek buddy*: Put the text of the symptoms into search engines and learn learn learn!
Promptly de-installed this junk. This was as bad as the scam phone call where the guy pretends to be from Microsoft and wants you to be scared when you look in your event viewer and see stuff. I hope that someday this type of predatory application will be illegal. WTHeck are you thinking Tom's HW?
Control Panel --> Programs and Features. Sort by install date so should be at top. Select GeekBuddy. Select uninstall.
