    I have only used he FIXiT once successfully, and then it did not speed up my computer. It took about 21 hours to run. I do not have the internet at home and cannot leave my computer unattended at a hotspot. How do I get a refund?

    Hi Carol,

    Please contact us at support@fixmestick.com to process a refund.
    Just so you know, you do not need to be connected to the internet in order to run a successful scan. As for the scan time, this is dependent on the number of files saved on your computer as well as the speed of your computer’s processor.

    Best,
    The FixMeStick Team
