Welcome to the BlueCollarPC Security Helper! (Our Alternate Site)
 
VISIT OUR MAIN DOMAIN   BlueCollarPC.US 
 
The BlueCollarPC.US was launched June 14 2010.... Webmaster formerly of the BlueCollarPC.Net from 2005 -2009 (over 6 million Visitors) and back up BlueCollarPC.Org [closed].
Personal Website for General Audiences with Computing Safety and Malware Removal Help and Information which includes memberships available for live help - at our Groups and Forums
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.

The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C).
