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.

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:
