Default Don't forget to clean your PC.lol

This is my moms slow piece of **** PC. She thought she could smell something burning every once and awhile.So just a reminder that if you have a old PC running somewhere (kids room,garage,shop,basement) that has not bin cleaned lately it might be a good idea to have a look.

Nice clean-up job. That was particularly gnarly.

Good thing you didn't find a snake or a rat in it.

Is that a smokers computer? I've cleaned a few smokers computers that look like that or worse.

It looks like a wood shop computer. Nice clean up, thought it was new (except for the old hardware).

Edit: and 99% of dust is human skin? So did she use a cheese grater on her self?
