It’s pretty bad to see this company My Clean PC preying on innocent consumers. They constantly change names and try to swindle people out of money for a worthless product. Buyer beware MyCleanPC is out to TAKE your hard earned cash. This company advertises on cheap national ad slots in bulk, heck for $5,000 I can put my ad out 250 times in front of 2 Million or so eyeballs. Usually late at night and on the more affordable cable networks like comedy central and home and garden TV.
I wrote about this company in early 2010 My Clean PC operates under several different monikers which are all registered to Cyber Defender, You can find more like MyFasterPC , MaxMySpeed and a host of other completely useless and down right rip off scams. Each of them, recognized and known as a source of Malware.. Since I take notice of who and why people come to my site. Noticing the incoming keywords of My Clean PC, I decided to put up another warning with the hopes that people do not succumb to this scam being perpetuated on National TV.
Read this article and some of the comments to understand why My Clean PC should not be trusted. If your PC is running slowly there are several products out there than can do a pretty good job of cleaning your PC. I recommend a combination of Super Antispyware, Malware Bytes, and Spybot seek and destroy. I have used these products and HiJack This, successfully as a Level 4 field tech for Bright House networks Road Runner High Speed online customers. During the 5 years that I worked there I ran over 7500 Service calls.
Be Warned My Clean PC is not worth it. Try AVG, or MalwareBytes first. Then if that does not work take it to a pro. Find them on CL and through WOM. Geek Out!
Another SCAM Alert:
It is amazing how many of these sites will pop up. MyFasterPC.com will make my third article warning people against the same company that sells junk software like these other posts; maxmyspeed.com and mycleanpc.com.
Apparently they think they can change a few keywords to stay ahead of the game.
Watch out for this one readers. This has been advertised in several prominent media outlets (I just watched this on comedy central) as being able to fix any pc. It can “make a 7 year old computer blazingly fast, even faster than a new computer”. This is just plain horse pucky.
Do yourself a favor and stay far far away from this product or any product that makes such ridiculous claims. If you are experiencing a slow computer, download malwarebytes and super antispyware. Update them both and let them run…preferably in Safe Mode. Another good program worth mentioning is the venerable and most awesome Spybot search and destroy available form safer-networking.org or this direct link.
Be warned the WOT and McAfee both list mycleanpc.com finallyfast.com and doublemyspeed.com, myfasterpc.com and cleanmypc.com as severe threats. Closer inspection reveals that this web site is owned by a company called cyberdefender ( a known spyware company )

Here’s the deal, they want you to download there crappy software so that they can up-sell you a cleaning service. This is a service that does not work worth a crap, it will actually cause more problems than it will fix. It will even provide over 400 warnings on a clean install of windows.
