Is the "Clean My PC" software worth the cost or is it better to just reload the operating system? My virus software does not catch or remove spam and or spy ware. My kids download lots of little games and the computer seems to run slow and freeze up at time. What do you recommend?
I would not think that ‘clean my pc’ is going to work very well. It just does a very minor, quick clean of some files on the computer. Wiping out and reinstalling your whole system would do a very good job, but it is a drastic procedure and takes a lot of time, plus you need to be sure you save all your files.. Then you need to reinstall all your programs. This may be a good procedure if you want to start all over from scratch, especially if your kids have installed a lot of games.
I can do a really good tuneup/cleanup on your computer for $40-$60. There is some good free antivirus software available. I like Avast or Microsoft Security Essentials. Let me know if you have further questions.
