Welcome all, our BlueCollarPC.US (formerly BlueCollarPC.Net) passes the 8 Million Visitors mark!
Our original domain, the BlueCollarPC.Net, had just passed the 6 Million Visitors mark from 2005 until we moved to our present home – the BlueCollarPC.US in 2010. Originally, we started as a spyware information and free removal Commuity Help site in 2005. As malware became even more sophisticated, trojans trojans trojans, botnet infections were increasing and becoming more sophisticated as well.
In response, we simply expanded our site to be the full blown malware information and free removal Community Help Site. The term malware means simply all the catagory threats – both antivirus and antispyware catagories. Traditionally, viruses and worms and most trojans, and then rootkits added, were detected by traditional antivirus. Adware and then various and many spyware pacakages were then in the antispyware catagory of threats and detected, blocked, and removed by same – antispyware products.
So we then transferred our domain to the now BlueCollarPC.US for the new decade with a full emphasis in removal help of botnet infections – the new worst feared infection (massive payloads) surpassing rootkits. The greatest feared malware – rootkits – were unable to run on Windows Vista, but were always a dreaded infection for Windows XP. Now with Windows 8 and the new Secure Boot technology, rootkits are not able to start up and run on Win8. So the great botnet plague is now the worst feared enemy for the community of computer users and including all from Small Business all the way through Corporates etc. These are intensive massive payloads that need much removal diagnosis and help. There is generally always several areas of damage needing repair and resetting. They can even bypass traditional antimalware products if not up on their game – they walk through in seconds like it was not even there!

Welcome to the www.BlueCollarPC.US We Thank You for choosing us as your additional Computing Security destination !
For the record….. I began the BlueCollarPC Computing Security Community Website in 2005 at the original .Net website. I believe at that time, the .Com website was actually a PC Repair Shop which I was not connected with. Towards the end of 2009, the BlueCollarPC .Net created by me had enjoyed just over 6 Million Vistors/Users! – and are proud to have helped and indeed actually had “discovery” in the security industry concerning the malware RASautodial registry entries discovered by Yours Truly. Never be afraid to ‘take a look under the hood’ of your PC ! You never know what you’ll find.
