PC Maintenance

Want to take security into your own hands? These demonstrations will guide you along the process of using some of the most common utilities to:

  • Wipe out malware with ADWCleaner, MalwareBytes, or McAfee
  • Clean up excess space with CCleaner
  • Further secure your computer with Microsoft Security Essentials

We've given each program a difficulty rating. Programs classified as easy have a good user interface and have minimal chance of causing problems on your computer. Intermediate programs have a slightly greater risk of causing issues with your computer. Expert programs are only recommended for users who know what they are doing as these can cause serious problems if not used correctly.
