Give your PC a tuneup using this free eBook from WindowsSecrets.com

Summary: This eBook is free for a limited time and walks you through installing and fine-tuning Windows 7, and optimizing your PC in general

SHARE:

If you have been thinking about playing around with Windows 7 or your machine is just not running as smoothly as you wish it could, check out the free eBook that I've linked to below.

The eBook, PC Maintenance Guide, is normally $9.95, but TradePub is offering it for free for a limited time.

If you're wondering what's covered in it, I took a quick look and it goes through the process of installing Windows 7 on a separate partition, and even installing from a USB drive, backing up your existing Windows installation, with some recommended free tools, optimizing, and then even speeding up your PC in general. The eBook starts off focused on Windows 7 but then goes into a more generic PC-style troubleshooting.

You can't beat the price and I actually found it to be useful enough to keep handy, for the next time I want to play around with some optimizing.

Fetch it today at tradepub.com.

      @Samic Can you please forward that ebook to my email: robinmathewrajan@yahoo.com because now Tradepub has closed that offer...!!

  • There is absolutely nothing free about this

    [i]Complete and verifiable information is required in order to receive this offer[/i]
    [i]Valid email address is required to fulfill your request. [/i]

    Means you're selling off your privacy to spammers.

    And if you think that they're not going to spam you, then why do they require a verifiable email address if you're not going to sign up for newsletters?

      @Joe_Raby <br><br>Indeed, indeed. It links to the WS newsletter webbie, so at least it's a legit site. But registration is required, to include a verifiable email addy. If you do bite, use a throw away or online 'spam' account to be on the safe side, not a POP3 or better.

      @Joe_Raby the reason why you need to give a verifiable email address is so they know where to send the ebook when you signup, how else are you going to get it?

    I agree; there is another tech website that does the same thing...either it's free or it's not! I think ZDNet should vet these scams before they offer them.

  • Use Your Fake Info

    This is one of those sites you definitely want to use your fake info for. Windows Secrets apparently is on a membership drive. You will probably see emails from them to sign up for their pay-for newsletter (not that good - used to have it and dropped it).

  • ZD Net is selling snake oil...

    and so are a bunch of other "technical sites".
    They will do ANYTHING to get your info.
    I usually fill in with First Name: "Dontask" Last Name: "Forthatinfo" and so on but the product is always worthless.

      @garylavery
      I'd try that (First Name: "Dontask" Last Name: "Forthatinfo") but I'd probably get "You've alreay signed up for that" (grin)

    It is not a free ebook. They require contact information which is of value or they would not be asking for it. With all the talk about privacy and identity theft, I don't understand why something is labeled "FREE" if that contact information is required. Free means no strings!

  • RE: Give your PC a tuneup using this free eBook from WindowsSecrets.com

    This is crap, all they do is try to sell you stuff. I used an email address that I don't care about and never received any link to the book. SHAME ON YOU for recommending this!
