Backup, Backup & Backup!
If you do nothing else make sure your backing up properly.
000it offer a very cost effective backup management solution that can cost as little as $100 per month. We regularly see data recovery bills of more than $10,000 from clients who get their backup strategy wrong, not to mention the loss of profits & downtime for the medical centre.

No matter what happened, please be 100% honest with your tech.
None of us want to waste time & money chasing the wrong solution just because someone bent the truth. We have seen & heard it all. No matter how silly you feel, we have all seen & probably done something just as silly. There is nothing that you can tell us that will shock us & the sooner we know what happened the sooner it will get fixed.
Keep your software up to date & run the recommended patches & upgrades in the right order AFTER you read the upgrade notes.
Our maintenance program is very cheep compared to a medical centre that is down.
Turn Off, the right way
Wait for Windows to shut it down properly. Turning a computer off at the powerpoint without shutting down properly first can cause permanent hard drive defects.
If your computer "hangs" try pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL keys at the same time and wait for task manager to launch. The Task Manager window has a tab you can press to enable you to shutdown normally.
The only time you can force a shutdown is if this fails.
Unplug, the right way
Don't unplug peripherals while they are powered on, it can damage your motherboard.
Use a UPS
Always run your computer on a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). This will prevent power surges in cases of low and high voltage occurrences.
Power outages are a major source of database corruption.
Free Space is a must
Keep at least 2 GB of your C: free for Windows to use.
Do not throw away installer software & keys, please keep them in ONE safe place.
Play it Safe
Don't install new software without talking to your tech's first. We remember one client who had a "really cool" new program that gave him access to his desktop from home..... unfortunately it also gave everyone else in the world access to his desktop.
Use antivirus programs & make sure you have firewall protection.
