It’s a fact of life that PCs are vulnerable to malicious programs that can be picked up from simply visiting a seemingly harmless website or by opening an email. There’s also usually a bunch unwanted programs that manufacturers seem to load up on their computers that waste your valuable disk space. Both of these problems can combine to make your PC sluggish at best and cause you to lose important files and the use of your computer at the worst. The Jumpshot looks like a fun USB drive, but it’s actually a powerful suite of applications that clean your PC of malware and viruses and fine-tune your hardware and software for the best performance you can get from your computer. When you plug the Jumpshot into a USB port, it “sedates” your computer and begins finding and removing malware and crapware, fine-tuning your security and your internet browser, analyzing your disk usage, and even identifying hardware that may be in danger of failing. You can buy a one-time usage, one-PC license for $19, or you can protect all your PCs (up to 5) with unlimited scans for one year. You’ll even be able to gift a friend or family member with one of your scans with this license. If you are the designated tech expert for all your friends and family, you may need the $149 Power User plan for a year of unlimited scans on up to 25 PCs. There’s even a Professional User plan for commercial use. The Jumpshot is a powerful tool for your arsenal, and it would be the perfect gift for those folks who rely on you as their own personal tech support.
