Pleasanton, CA (PRWEB) January 17, 2007
Avanquest Software has introduced System Care Professional, an innovative all-in-one solution that not only simplifies PC network set-up and management, but also provides PC security, system diagnostics and repair. System Care Professional is the first application that combines a full-featured network management utility with the industry's leading PC performance optimization tools and the most advanced anti-virus and anti-spyware protection.
Complete with a five-user license, a single copy of System Care Professional can protect up to five networked home or business computers, all for $49.95 MSRP. Designed to automate the configuration and maintenance of any small home or office PC network, System Care Professional includes an intuitive SmartSetup™ network wizard, which allows out-of-the-box operation of a simple wired or wireless network in a matter of minutes no matter what level of technical skill the user possesses.
"Avanquest is breaking new ground by integrating PC security and maintenance with network set-up and support," said Scott Feldstein, Vice President, Avanquest Software Utility Products. "We've assembled best-of-breed spyware and malware protection, spam prevention, firewall-enabled security and data-back-up capabilities to create a total PC performance solution that offers unbeatable value."
System Care Professional provides the highest level of virus and malware protection by incorporating Virus Scanner Pro™ and Spyware Scanner Pro™. Powered by Trend Micro™, these award-winning, ultra-powerful malware detectors effectively isolate and remove potential problems before they can do any damage to a system's critical data. With real time monitoring and automatic updates, these tools ensure a PC is protected from even the latest security threats.
As part of its multi-layered approach to PC security, System Care Professional also includes a NetDefense™ dual-layer firewall designed to block intrusions from spyware, adware, worm viruses and Trojans often encountered though routine web surfing or network access. For additional protection, NetDefense continually monitors a PC's ports to ensure viruses are not transferred by devices like digital music and video players, jump drives, external hard-drives and networked devices.
System Care Professional additionally features an innovative "Quick Status" screen for simplified navigation of the software's menus and utility sets, and a Start-Up Commander™ that's designed to speed a PC's initialization process by allowing users to modify and remove unessential programs that can cause Windows™ to load slowly. An included program reference database can identify even obscurely named applications to determine if they can be safely removed.
In addition to security and routine PC maintenance, System Care Professional features a complete schedule of preventive measures for data security, diagnosing hardware problems, system clean-up and registry optimization including:
- AutoSave automatically backs-up any PC or network data to a range of storage devices including local or network drives, external USB or FireWire™ drives, USB flash drives or optical media.
- Registry Commander enables PC users to speed up their operating system by safely identifying and removing old and corrupted links from the Windows Registry.
- SMARTDiskCheck notifies users of SMART enabled hard-disk performance deterioration which can lead to data loss and complete drive failure.
- PCDiagnostics has more than 95 tests that check and report on all installed system hardware including memory, hard drives, USB, network cards, video, sound cards, DVD drives and more for accurate error identification and troubleshooting.
- SystemExplorer scans the PC and provides a complete list of system statistics.
- SystemMonitor examines the system's available resources and issues warnings if they reach critical levels.
Also bundled with System Care Professional are: Recovery Commander, an advanced data recovery tool for correcting major file damage that can prevent a system from booting; and Rescue Disk, a preconfigured system boot disk for rescuing computers that are unable to properly initialize. System Care Professional also comes with a 1-year subscription of anti-virus and anti-spyware updates and lets users schedule additional protection scans for times when the PC is not usually being used.
System Care Professional is available at leading computer and office products retail outlets and directly from Avanquest USA. For additional information visit: http://vcom.avanquest.com/cat/prod.php?pid=2357
