Well since I work in a retail store's tech center, I have seen a lot of nasty computers. So I have decided to post a pic of each one I come across now in the hopes that this will make people more aware THAT THEY NEED TO CLEAN OUT THIER PC'S!!!!<br><br><br><a href="http://img212.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img2504ey2.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://img212.imageshack.us/img212/5681/img2504ey2.th.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"></a>

I'd say that most people here take apart their computer at least once a month (usually more like once a day) but I will pass on the message.

That is just gross, if my pc ever got like that I would probably just throw it aways. As it would be more work to clean! If there is even a site of dust in mine now she gets taken apart and cleaned. I like positive pressure systems for a reason lol.<br />
<br />
Oh and the smoker cases just have to make you throw up in your mouth a bit each time.<br />

I was adding a hard drive to a friend's computer, and found at least a full pound of cat hair inside the computer. They have 4 or 5 short hair cats...so it's kinda expected, but still gross.

Wow, these computers are about on par (but maybe just a little bit worse) than my S.O.'s father's former computer.<br />
It was about as good as the pic you provided, danm, and he was a smoker at that time too. It was scary looking.<br />
<br />
So of course, out came the trusty old screwdriver, and I completely -- <u><b>COMPLETELY</b></u> -- took apart that old P3 Celeron's HSF... every single last screw. Waster about a regular-sized can and a half of compressed air getting all the gunk off-a that heatsink and fan before I considered it 'okay' enough to take to the local computer store to sell off for parts.<br />
Yikes!
