The Bronze package is designed to keep your PC safe from the ever-present risk of viruses and other threats to your system roaming the Internet. The Bronze package includes 4 quarterly visits and addresses the following issues:
With the increase in virus activity on the Internet, the major Anti-Virus software manufacturers now release updates to their protection, called "Virus Definitions" daily. While the threat of each new virus infecting your system upon release can be relatively small, it is always a good idea to keep your Anti-Virus software up to date and your system protected.
The latest threat to your PC is called Spyware. Spyware consists of programs or files on your computer that do everything from track your web browsing habits to recording your keystrokes, directing you to pornographic websites, stealing your personal data, or worse. These files and programs often exist on your PC without your knowledge, having been clandestinely downloaded or installed along with other programs or from websites you have visited. Music sharing programs, such as KazaaTM or MorpheusTM are the number one sources of Spyware.
CRITICAL WINDOWS® UPDATES
Out of the box, Microsoft Windows® is filled with bugs and security holes. Failure to address these problems can leave your PC vulnerable to hackers and Virus Worms, affect system performance, and more. New updates and fixes are released regularly. The recent "Blaster" and "Sasser" Worm attacks are examples of why you should keep your system current and protected.
Total PC Support will install and update your Anti-Virus software, recommend the best solution if you are not yet protected, check for and remove all Spyware, and perform all Critical Windows updates.
