Are Online PC Cleanup Services Like mycleanpc.com and maxmyspeed.com Any Good?

Cindy writes in with a troubleshooting question

Question:
Are those computer cleaning services you see on TV like mycleanpc.com and maxmyspeed.com any good or are they just scams?

Answer: Those online computer cleanup services basically just have you install their software and it will scan your computer and tell you that you have issues that need to be cleaned. Then they most likely will want you to buy the software in order to fix your problems. They are using software similar to the free Ccleaner software and anti spyware software such as Malwarebytes and Spybot.

I wouldn't waste your time with these services and just install the free software that is out that that does basically the same thing. Plus you can run some other cleanup procedures as well to get the same results.
