Rescuing a computer is only the beginning...
Understanding how to use it and knowing where to get help are just as important. We've worked hard to de-clutter the desktop, removing unneccessary and complicated applications to present everything in a way that is very easy to understand. Compare the start menus of a typical rescued computer and stock Windows 10:
