The 7 Deadly Sins of Computer Maintenance


How sinful is your computer maintenance?

1. Inadequate Virus, Malware and Spyware Protection
A recent IT survey showed less than 10 percent of computers had adequate protection
Many Antivirus products offer poor protection against Malware, particularly PUPS
Data theft, identity theft and fraud are the most common motives behind malware infestations

2. Poorly managed system and driver updates
System performance and reliability can suffer greatly
Not doing updates can cause havoc with a system
Peripherals may not function properly due to out-of-date drivers

3. Out-of-Date Operating Systems

We find 50 percent of Windows 7 computer  have virus or spyware infections. with 25 percent of Windows 10 computer have virus or spyware infections.

4. Out-of-Date Application Software
Few people realize that older copies of MS Office and others have major security holes

5. Inadequate or No Backup systems
Less than 10 percent of all desktop computers have any backup mechanism in place
Many backup systems do not fully backup all files, programs or settings.

6. Old Hardware
Most computers were not designed for life spans beyond 4-5 years
Older computers are underequipped to handle needed security patches
Catastrophic failure costs can be unnecessarily high, especially if data recovery is involved

7. No scheduled maintenance
Scheduled maintenance contracts are more cost-effective than break-fix

* Doing it yourself is not cost-effective
