Hello techs,
I am working on a pc here and I ran Uniblue Registry cleaner and it found Fix-It Utilities 11 Professional and called it Malware.  Does anyone have any experience with Fix-It Utilities 11 Professional, and is it in anyone's opinion, "malware"?
Thank you,

I don't have any experience with it but it seems okay looking at it online. (http://www.avanquest.com/UK/software/fixit-utilities-11-professional-154140) Did you upload the file to www.virustotal.com ?  Note that some utilities will register as malware due to the way they perform their various acts.  I have had to put my whole utility directory in the exclusions list of my antimalware.
