PC Health boost Shut Down by FTC

The Federal Trade Commission has closed 2 technical support companies including PC HealthBoost after the companies “scammed” computer users from millions of dollars. The companies provided software to users which required a fee to activate. PC Cleaner was distributed for the sole purpose of scaring users into purchasing software after they became notified to system issues which may or may not have existed.

Boost Software was selling similar software with the addition of telemarketing operations that were also fake. Both companies websites have been closed in addition to a company help operate the call center, OMG Tech Help. PC Healthboost claimed to be able to increase the speed of your computer by 216%. Boost Software CEO Amit Mehta was named as the mastermind by the FTC.

Experts from Microsoft unveiled many of the things that I was saying they should bring up at their Windows press conference in San Francisco. One of the biggest surprises Microsoft made was to name their new operating system Windows 10. That being said many of the other aspects of the reveal were quite basic. They didn't throw many other curve balls that would suggest they're fundamentally changing their business model.

It looks like the Windows Start Menu should be returning in a big way, which might please users who were upset with the live tile interface brought ushered in by Windows 8. The new menu provides options for both the traditional program list as well as a customizable set of live tiles. These can just as easily work with touch screen devices for those who need it. Those who have convertible 2-in-1 devices should be able to have the operating system reconfigure itself automatically based on what mode is chosen.
