Deus ex (slow) machina!
1. Nobody not in a MyCleanPC.com commercial would refer to their slow computer as being "dirty." Unless the person is surfing for porn. Then they might use the word "dirty," but it STILL would not be describing the slow performance of the computer.
2. Nobody not in a MyCleanPC.com commercial would refer to their computer as a "PC." I've never heard anyone call their computer anything but a Computer, a Desktop, or a Laptop. PC? Sorry, MyCleanPC.com, that "FinallyFast.com" and "DoubleMySpeed.com" were already taken- that doesn't mean that we are using the term "PC" to refer to our computers.
So this is basically the most contrived setup seen on the screen since Anakin asked Qui-Gon "I've been wondering, what are midi-chlorians?"*
*Though I must say, what I thought was ten minutes of pointless banter concerning the Epic Awesomeness of Pod-racing earlier in the film really delivered in cinematic payoff, didn't it? :>(
