Bogged Down by Bloat? Slimware Reveals Cities with Clean and Lean Computers

Portland, Ore. Tops the List of Nation’s Cleanest PCs; Boston and San Antonio Take Home Second and Third Place

New York, November 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – With the season of resolutions almost upon us, it’s time to dust off the digital cobwebs and start organizing and optimizing computers for next year. Slimware Utilities, the maker of SlimCleaner Plus™, the all-in-one solution for PC maintenance, today announced the top 25 cities for keeping clean personal computers

“Keep Portland Weird” may be the signature slogan for a city known for the arts, atypical lifestyles and individuality, but now Portlanders can add another trait to their city’s résumé -- America’s cleanest PC city. Second place goes to Boston, where they might love that “dirty water” -- but residents’ computers are spic and span. San Antonio, Oklahoma City and Las Vegas round out the top five list.

“Consumers on both coasts are keeping their computers clean and bloat-free, and it’s great to see cities topping our list that may not be as well known for their tech savvy as places like Silicon Valley – clearly their citizens know otherwise,” said Bob Bryant, chief technology officer at Slimware Utilities. “People often don’t realize how important it is to clean their computers, or how much bloatware, unused files, broken code, temp files and other unnecessary items can accumulate on a PC to weigh it down and slow its performance. Cleaning shouldn’t be restricted to your physical home – your digital home needs the love, too.”

America’s cleanest PC cities are:

  1. Portland, Ore.
  2. Boston, Mass.
  3. San Antonio, Texas
  4. Oklahoma City, Okla.
  5. Las Vegas, Nev.
  6. Philadelphia, Pa.
  7. Phoenix, Ariz.
  8. Denver, Colo.
  9. Seattle, Wash.
  10. Indianapolis, Ind.
  11. San Diego, Calif.
  12. San Jose, Calif.
  13. Jacksonville, Fla.
  14. Charlotte, N.C.
  15. Los Angeles, Calif.
  16. For Worth, Texas
  17. New York, N.Y.
  18. Dallas, Texas
  19. Brooklyn, N.Y.
  20. Houston, Tex.
  21. Columbus, Ohio
  22. Chicago, Ill.
  23. Nashville, Tenn.
  24. Atlanta, Ga.
  25. Washington, D.C.
