PC Maintenance Handbook Now Available

By Rich on September 10, 2009 0 Comments

The PC Maintenance Handbook is now available. This handbook is designed to help you find ways to maintain your Windows XP/Vista/7 PC and ensure your PC remains clean and speedy throughout its life. Computers quickly get bogged down by junk files, invalid registry entries, a fragmented hard drive, spyware, adware, low disk space, and more. A speedy system is just a few clicks away, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start or even what to do.

The purpose of this book is not to define the ultimate solution; its purpose is to give you simple, unbiased advice on what I’ve found to be the best options out there. In this handbook, I only give advice and share programs that I’ve used for at least a year. Some programs seem good when you first use them, but quickly annoy you or slow down your PC.
