Bestselling Author Team Shows Computer Users How to Clean Up and Take Control of Their PCs With Degunking(TM) Your PC

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/31/05 -- Paraglyph Press announces the publication of "Degunking(TM) Your PC" (U.S. $24.99, 352 pp, ISBN 1-933097-03-5), the fifth major book in the bestselling Degunking(TM) series, which shows computer users how to clean up and take control of their PCs. In this book, bestselling authors Joli Ballew and Jeff Duntemann tackle the huge problems of PC hardware, peripherals, cables, wires, wireless technology, security, and all the latest electronic gadgets. Anyone who's bewildered by the jumble of wires and configuration problems with the latest technology will love this book. Written in a plain and straightforward style, "Degunking Your PC" will help even the most bewildered computer user clean up their PC, laptop, wireless connections, and computer toys. Even if you're not a novice, this book will help you streamline and better utilize your PC, laptop, and other computing devices.

The plethora of electronic devices in our homes these days have created a real mess. (Just try to figure out that rat's nest of wires under your desk or locate the missing cord for one of your peripherals!) In "Degunking Your PC," bestselling authors Ballew and Duntemann -- authors of last year's bestseller "Degunking Windows" -- show how to clean up all your electronic devices to improve performance and minimize the chance for problems. This enjoyable and readable book covers PCs and laptops, as well as the ever-popular peripherals such as printers, scanners, digital cameras, keyboards, and monitors. Ballew and Duntemann show how to get rid of stuff that's not needed, connect everything together, remove as much clutter as possible, get organized, go wireless, create a seamless and easy-to-manage home network, improve security, and maximize your PC's performance. Even users who have only one PC can benefit by getting rid of all the accumulated gunk that can really slow down a computer. Some of the unique ways this easy-to-read and useful book can help include:

--  The unique 12-Step Degunking Program allows users to clean up their
    PCs and peripherals by following a proven step-by-step method
--  A special section, Degunking With Time Constraints, helps users get
    rid of unwanted gunk, even if they have as little as 10 minutes
--  Shows where gunk accumulates on PCs and how it can slow everything
    down
--  Features degunking maintenance tasks to perform on a regular basis to
    keep PCs and peripherals in top form
--  Explains how to get rid of old hardware, and how and why to degunk a
    brand-new PC
--  Presents the best ways to manage backups and archived data, and how to
    best set up security for your computers
--  Demonstrates how to set up gunk-free networks to link up all the PCs
    in a home or small office
--  Presents the latest techniques for using gunk-free wireless technology
    and how to improve wireless security

    performance of your hardware devices

The way Joli and Jeff expertly present their 12-step Degunking plan is especially useful and easy to implement. I think this book will be a 'must have' for all home computer users, as well as anyone who runs a small or large computer network."
