The one-step PC optimization is able to detect hard drive problems before they become unsolvable, heartbreaking problems. Scheduled system maintenance is provided by the PC Essentials service and you certainly don’t want to miss out on that!

Say goodbye to unwanted files and programs

PC Essentials provides a secure way to delete files permanently from your hard drive. The secure file shredder allows for more free space on your PC and makes sure that you aren’t carrying around any unwanted files for no good reason.

Your Internet speed will also depend on the amount of memory your computer uses. More free space will mean faster speeds and a better connection.

Plus, get the awesome Windows Startup Manager to monitor and remove startup programs that slow down your operating system. Some of these programs may even harm your system, but PC Essentials has your back! Out with the old, and in with the new—thanks to HughesNet PC Essentials.

Help prevent identity theft

Another great thing about PC Essentials is its ability to help prevent identity theft. We’ve all heard the horror stories of getting billed for thousands of dollars you never spent. Take precautions against the nightmare of identity theft when you use the Internet clean-up feature on PC Essentials. It wipes away Internet tracks and helps to protect your privacy.
