Fixing PC Problems Before They Start

Techstination feature for Monday, June 8, 2009

Fixing PC problems before they start. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology Boot Camp, a report on gadgets and gear. It can be a frustrating experience for PC users... the crashing.... and sometimes seemingly endless waits for a computer to boot or a program to start. There are some fix it tools on the market that can help. The problem is many require some knowledge about the inner workings....and ask questions most folks don't know the answers to. That's not the case with PC Tune-Up from Large Software. CEO Nick Forcier likens it to taking your car in for maintenance...

"You need to take it in for oil changes, you need to rotate the tires. Your computer is the same way. Your computer gets mucked up with junk every single day that you're on it and without maintaining it, without bringing it in for maintenance, it could slow, it could freeze, it could crash, it could die."

The thirty dollar price includes a license for three PCs. You can try it for free at You can find us with archives and more at I'm Fred Fishkin
