Never worry again about computer monitoring or maintenance. If downtime and computer problems are unacceptable in your home or business, the TOTAL Care subscription is for you. Let the professionals do what they do best; and if you ever have a question, we'll be there to help at discounted rates.
Total Care subscription consists of three components: Proactive Monitoring, Preventative Maintenance, and Discounted Remote Support. The subscription is built around the fact that most computer users do not have nor desire to have the skills or time necessary to preform the proper maintenance and monitoring that each and every computer system should have. With this subscription, you'll never have to worry about if you're doing the right things and taking proper care of your computer. Those tasks will be left in the hands of our certified and trained technicians. And when you do have a question or need help with something, we'll provide you with discounted pricing and no minimums on all remote support sessions. We invite you to continue reading to discover more about this valuable subscription service.
One of the most valuable components of the Total Care subscription is Proactive Monitoring. Our software will continually monitor your computer 24x7 to ensure your computer is running as it should be. No more surprise breakdowns or failures! In the event that a problem is detected, one of our trained and certified technicians will call and/or e-mail you about the problem so that it may be resolved before it turns into a bigger issue and causes more problems, damage to your computer, productivity loss, headaches, and additional cost. Here is a list of some of the items that are monitored for and reported to you by our trained and certified technicians:
- Higher than normal and unacceptable CPU utilization.
CPU over utilization is one of the main reasons a computer will run slow.
- Little to no free RAM (random-access memory).
Not having a sufficient amount of RAM to support the applications you are trying to run is the primary reason a computer will run slow. When a computer runs out of physical RAM, it will use what's known as 'virtual memory'. Virtual memory is created using free space on your hard disk drive. Today's hard disk drives are 7.69 million times slower than RAM. In theory this means your computer will run 7.69 million times slower when you run out of physical RAM and start using virtual memory. You could also experience error messages and program crashes.
- Little to no free Hard Disk Drive storage space.
Many times users will fill up their hard disk drives to their maximum capacity with documents, music, photos, videos, and other files without even knowing it. A computer with little to no free hard disk drive storage space could cause performance issues and error messages.
- Failing Hard Disk Drive
In today's world, hard drives usually give signs to the imminent failure weeks or even months in advance. The average computer user however does not dig way down into the system logs to find such warnings. Then one day their computer no longer boots and not only are they without their computer for a few days while it's being repaired but they've also lost important data which may not be easily recoverable depending upon the hard disk drive's condition. Not to mention the labor costs involved to do the repair are substantially higher. On the other hand, with an early warning, the technician can do an image copy from the failing hard drive to a new hard drive in less than an hour!
- Inactive, malfunctioning, or out of date Anti-Virus / Internet Security Software
If you've also signed up for our Anti-Virus or Internet Security software subscription, the software will be monitored for errors or malfunctions. With thousands of new viruses being released into the wild each day, you can not afford to be on the internet with inactive, malfunctioning, or outdated PC Protection software!
- Inactive, malfunctioning, or out of date System Backup Software
If you've also signed up for our on-site Full System Backup subscription, the backup software will be monitored for errors or malfunctions as well as missed backup jobs. The worst thing that can happen is to THINK you have a up to date backup only to find out later that for one reason or another you do not when you need to recover important data.
The second valuable component of the Total Care subscription is the Preventative Maintenance service. Many times computer users are not trained nor experienced enough in how to keep their computer operating at its full potential. There are numerous things that can harm a computer performance. Temporary files from software, system and software updates, installations, uninstallations, browsing the internet, DLL or other caches, and more will continue to pile up and eat up hard disk space until they are taken care of. Fragmented hard disk drives will cause the hard drive to work harder to read and write data; which results in a slower system and premature hard disk drive failure. Lingering or undetected infected files could wreak havoc on your PC if they are not disinfected or removed. The Preventative Maintenance component of our Total Care subscription will ensure your computer continues to run at its full potential each and every day. Here is a list of some of the items that are periodically done to your computer in the background, (usually while you're sleeping if you leave your computer turned on at night) by our trained and certified technicians:
- Periodic Installation of all Critical and Recommended Microsoft Updates
So that your computer is fully secure and up-to-date, we'll make sure you have all your updates from Microsoft. Some patches from Microsoft close exploits hackers could use to get into your system and other patches fix programming errors found in Microsoft software.
- Regular AntiVirus / Internet Security Updates, Full System Scans, and Disinfection
If you've also signed up for our Anti-Virus or Internet Security software subscription, we will periodically do a manual definition update and full system scan to make sure nothing got past the antivirus / internet security software and is lingering in your system. If anything is found, a full disinfection or removal of the infected file(s) will be preformed.
- Hard Disk Defragmentation
Full hard disk drive defrag - allowing your computer to find files faster increasing the overall speed and responsiveness of your computer.
- Hard Disk Clean Up
System optimization, privacy and cleaning. We remove unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. We also clean traces of your online activities such as your Internet history to help protect your privacy and identity. Here are just a few of the programs that leave behind unused files that we clean up:
Temporary files, history, cookies, Autocomplete form history, index.dat.
Temporary files, history, cookies, download history, form history.
Temporary files, history, cookies, download history, form history.
