By default, the .ini has the program set to "Active=0" which means it just takes an look at your machine, but does not change anything.

To enable changes set it to "Active 1".

True, it may cause damage with unreasonable settings, but used properly it's a lifesaver for many of us. The author of the software provides ample warning of the potential for serious damage. Having said that, I've never heard of a machine that was permanently damaged from using this software; rather, I've heard of more than a few that have prevented damage by using it. In the end, only you can decide whether to use it or not . . .

[edit]: gee, I just got a feather for that reply :D I gotta try being nice more often!
