Malware, malware, malware with every link you click the potential for trouble exists: Mackeeper, Shoopy, Advanced Mac cleaner, Megabackup, Zip Cloud …
None of these programs do you any good and in most cases get in the way of your Macs performance. How do they get on your computer? We don’t know the definitive answer - you may have asked to have Mackeeper installed under the impression that it does help. In most instances though they enter your world via some pop up from the Internet such as “Your Flash Player is out of date - click here to update now”. It looks real but you’ve no way to tell - so DON’T click on it.
Though these pests are good for our business they’re bad for you. To help combat this irritant we’ve rolled out CapMac Health Care. This is a piece of software we install on your computer that will alert us if you have Malware. At the same time we’ll install a program, Malwarebytes, that will clean up any nefarious programs that might have been installed. Cost to do this? The install is free, and only $5/month to have us alert you if there's an issue found. For business customers there’s a $20 monthly minimum for up to 4 computers and $5.00/month for each additional computer.
Our Health Care program also checks the following:
• Hard Drive Space
• Hard Drive Errors
• RAM issues
• Time Machine failures
• Missing Hardware
• Failing Batteries
• RAID issues
• and a whole lot more
To date, the software runs more than 75 checks on your Mac. Find out before it’s too late that your hard drive is failing, you need more RAM or you haven’t backed up to Time Machine in awhile.
I WANT IT! How do I get it? For individuals bring your computer in and we’ll install CapMac Health Care and Malwarebytes, it's a same day installation. For the business customer, give us a call or drop Dave an email, and we’ll schedule a time to install CapMac Health Care - your first 30 days are free, if you stay with the program we’ll bill you, at an annual rate after the free trial period.
