That commercial has bothered me for as long as it has been around. Since a high amount of what I have to deal with on a day to day basis is end-user level support of systems, scareware apps like that one just make it harder to actually fix the real issues with people's systems...although that particular one is nice in that most people catch on that it's a scam when it tries to hit them up for $40 to fix the "problems" it finds.

That's the real problem. When stupid people get greedy. If they had done it for $5 instead they'd be billionaires by now.

I used to hate those damned My Clean PC commercials, but I've taken to substituting "pussy" for "pc" when I hear it and it suddenly becomes comedy gold.

 
I don't always drink carbonated Mexican rat piss, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis.

To be fair to that cleanup app, it reported a thousand issues on a week-old install of WINDOWS 8.

I'd say that's a fairly low number. :p
