Extending Life Expectancy of Computer
PALM DESERT, Calif., Jan. 28 // -- DEMO 08 -- support.com, a leader in technology support services, today announced the addition of PC HealthCheck to its roster of services at DEMO 08, the premier venue for new products, technologies and companies. PC HealthCheck (http://www.support.com/partner/healthcheck) takes a remote scan over the Internet of a consumer's PC and accesses the performance, security and overall system. Upon pinpointing key concerns, technicians can immediately help consumers resolve those issues with support.com's lineup of remote repair services such as System TuneUp and Virus and Spyware Removal.
Recently, support.com found the most frequent problems consumers encountered were virus and spyware issues (27 percent), tune-ups (31 percent), simple quick fixes (32 percent) and Microsoft Windows Vista (10 percent of calls). In response to this, support.com developed PC HealthCheck to proactively address potential issues before they become major time-consuming problems. Helping consumers avoid the time-intensive process of shipping their PCs to the manufacturer, inviting a stranger into the home, or relying on family and friends when computer problems arise, support.com is introducing this free service as a quick and convenient way to make sure a consumer's PC is running optimally year round.
"At support.com we realize very few people have time to deal with frustrating PC complications. Our goal is to alleviate unnecessary stress for consumers by helping them better manage their technology in a fast and cost effective manner," said Scott Herring, vice president of marketing, support.com. "Much like individuals tend to have regular check-ups with their doctors to avoid bigger problems down the road, we are launching PC HealthCheck in effort to provide an easy way for consumers to catch PC problems early and avoid the stress that can ensue."
PC HealthCheck is recommended every 90 days, to eliminate future problems that may cause consumer's PC to shut down or operate at a snail's pace. The program is ideal for consumers and small businesses that want to ensure their computers are in top shape to handle everyday tasks, important deadlines and frequent family/business communication.
"More and more we rely on technology for our daily connection to family, friends and work, and we can't afford to have major downtime that breaks that important link in our lives," said Chris Shipley, executive producer of the DEMO conferences. "PC HealthCheck is a valuable tool that enables consumers to evaluate the performance of their technology resources, and in the long run, allows them to extend the life of their PCs and the devices that interact with them such as MP3 players and digital cameras."
