maxmyspeed.com Scam

 "As a Networking and IT professional this is complete BS. There is NO one click fix to cure an infected computer."

There are free tools out there that will do a better job.

Recently I wrote about a site call MyCleanPC.com. This is a nationally advertised so called company that promises to clean up slow computers and make them run like new. Their ads are running on a National level.

As a Networking and IT professional this is complete BS. There is NO one click fix to cure an infected computer. It seems that this company just changes names and commercials whenever they please. Be warned they will have you installing a nasty program that will be only make your PC perform worse.

My last post received a lot of traffic and quite a few comments. Please read that post to see what we are talking about in more detail.

"Agreed, I just subscribed to their service, paid $29.99 and I was told to call their toll free number. The guy just spent 30 sec to look at my pc and told me that I needed to sign up for 100s of dollars of support to get my pc cleaned. I then called them to give a full refund and I am on hold for the last 2 hours!! this is a scam. They are making about $3600 per hour at this rate!!!" - anonymous
