The Barnes & Noble Review
Over time, your Windows PC gets cluttered with crud. It slows down. You have more trouble finding stuff. You crash more often. You could even get commandeered into some zombie network sending Spam all over the planet -- hey, it’s happening to 30,000 people a day. You gotta clean your PC. This book shows how.

It’ll help you get at the programs you need more easily. It’ll help you get rid of the software that’s slowing down your computer right now, without your knowledge. You’ll clean up all those stray emails. You’ll haul out the garbage web sites keep leaving on your PC. You’ll even get your data under control -- finally!

Things just feel better when they’re neat, clean, fast. Isn’t it time your PC felt that way again? Bill Camarda
