Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 3, 2009
VSWTechSolutions, owned and operated by Vincent Wright, is proud to present a solid solution to the problem of miss-configured PC's that run Windows XP. PC Essentials is the attempt to standardize the way a machine is setup and minimize the security and performance problems many end-users deal with on a daily basis. PC Essentials 3.0 is a batch file that is used to install various programs via CD. (When a batch file is run, a command shell reads the file and executes its commands, normally line-by-line.) A 230+ screenshot, step-by-step guide has been painstakingly created to help with the process.
"Honestly, I was getting tired of setting up a machine the hard way. Having to find and download all of these programs by hand added a lot of time to each client call," says Vincent Wright. "With PC Essentials, I am able to setup a machine in less then an hour and know that it is installed to the high standards that I have always worked by."
Along with the batch file and manual, a supplemental has been added to explain some of the steps in further detail. A 'Maintenance How-To Guide' has also been included to instruct the end user on procedures to maintain the machine on a weekly basis. A diagnostic checklist and disaster recovery form are also available for proof of work and can be used to explain to the end user exactly what was done.
PC Essentials 3.0 is a living product and will be further enhanced by a community forum section on the vswtechsolutions.com website. Complacency is the enemy to any OS installation procedure and Vincent is well aware of the danger in not keeping up-to-date. Techs, as well as end-users, are invited to comment on the various aspects of setting up an XP machine and the suggestions will be considered in upcoming versions of PC Essentials. Vista and Windows 7 versions are already on the drawing board and will be announced when they are ready.
PC Essentials 3.0 is a multi-vendor SLIPP (Stream Lined Installation and Preparation Procedure). A SLIPP is defined by configuring a PC through the use of a batch program, instruction guide and a checklist. A SLIPP is used to uniformly install and configure the PC to achieve certain levels of security, optimization, and promotes a general level of PC health. PC Essentials 3.0 is a cost neutral solution and has a very small performance footprint. The requirements before installing PC Essentials 3.0 are a fresh XP installation, XP is activated and you have LAN/WAN access.
