Clean Machine-A Small Business IT Solution

Here is a good idea if you cannot keep up with your computers and need a remote IT guy or gal


Most Brand-New PCs and Laptops are Compromised by “Junkware”
And Vulnerable to Virus and Spyware Attacks


Far Hills. NJ – December 06, 2007 - This year, many PC and laptop computers will be given as holiday gifts. However, most of these nice gifts will have something naughty inside that can seriously compromise their performance. It’s appropriately named junkware.

Junkware is the trial software, games and so-called efficiency tools you didn’t ask for, but nonetheless came pre-loaded on your new PC or laptop. Computer manufacturers market junkware as free, extra-value programs. But in reality, they profit from companies who pay to have these programs bundled with new computers. While the computer manufacturers count the cash, you’re left to fend off the constant pop-ups reminding you to renew your expired trial software.

According to Larry Gordon, CEO and Founder of PC security and performance management services company Clean Machine, Inc., “Junkware is not only annoying, it can seriously impair the performance of your new computer. That’s because junkware uses valuable disk and memory resources, which in turn slows processing speeds and raises the potential for system crashing. If this wasn’t bad enough, much of this junkware is integrated into the computer’s operating system, which makes it tricky to remove without also removing vital system files by accident. Plus, it’s just clutter.”

There are ways to remove junkware. One way is to use a multitude of system cleaning tools. One leading computer magazine recommended 20 different tools to do the complete job; but this is can be complicated and time consuming. A computer consultant or the service department at your computer store can do the job as well but for a hefty fee.

Clean Machine will be offering a superior alternative globally in January when it launches its unique and powerful PC Concierge Service, which for $19.95 a month assigns a highly trained technician to remotely scan your PC or laptop to effectively remove virtually all junkware, spyware and viruses.

The PC Concierge Service technician is armed with an extensive arsenal of the latest system optimization and security tools. Clean Machine also provides the customer with the most secure environment. It is more secure than onsite or other remote access solutions, including, for example, those offered by Geek Squad. The company has a unique, patent pending, 5 stage security process based on their proprietary software and processes.

“Our PC Concierge Service is the most complete, cost-effective and secure way to remove junkware from your brand new PC or laptop and then continuously protect it from the constant onslaught of viruses and spyware,” explains Gordon. “You don’t have to learn anything, talk to anyone, know how the software or computer works, or do anything. You don’t even have to be at your computer! We can do everything to help keep your computer optimized and secure for as long as you own it.”

The PC Concierge Service is also the perfect system optimization and security solution for small businesses of 5-10 computers, such as dental practices which generally don’t have a dedicated IT staff. Clean Machine's remote PC support offers a very cost effective solution for supporting a dental practice’s critical business systems and avoiding downtime that can severely impact their bottom line.
