So you just bought a brand new laptop and are all smiles–until you get home and power it on to discover that it came pre-installed with all this annoying software. Or you could be visiting your kid brother over the weekend–when he comes to you with his infected PC and says there’s this weird window that pops up every time he logs on to his email.
Sorting all of this stuff out the traditional way will normally take a couple of hours if the problem’s a big or serious one. And by traditional, I mean running virus and malware scanners, checking the system registry, and browsing through forums for an answer to your woes. Sounds like a long and tedious process, doesn’t it?
That’s what the people behind the Jumpshot USB sticks think too, which is why they came up with the perfect solution to turn this otherwise long process into a quick and easy one.
Jumpshot is basically an all-in-one software that’s been programmed to address certain issues that your system might have, all in one easy-to-use and extremely user-friendly package. They’ve even made up a bunch of different characters who are each assigned to target a specific problem. To add to the novelty factor, three of these have been turned into actual USB drives featuring Kobayashi, Officer Pete, or and Sir Jeffrey.
So the next time you come across a computer boo-boo, just plug the USB in or run Jumpshot, let the software run its magic, reboot when it’s done–and you’re all set.
The project is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $35 will get you an 8GB flash drive and early access to the Jumpshot software.
