The cost of lost productivity ran into the thousands. Remediation and maintenance have proven a cost-effective program in the years since.</p> <p>• The owner of a New Hampshire media production company did not maintain current anti-virus definitions on his computer – he just never got around to it. Unfortunately, his hard drive was badly infected by “malware” that gobbled his marketing collateral files as he watched, horrified. I could only console him while the data disappeared. I restored the data, at a cost of $1,000. The cost of setting up the regular anti-virus updates was $150, which preventing any further incursions. The annual cost for anti-virus updates is even lower.</p> <p>Other preventable common problems that can cripple a computer network include slow computers, programs that hang up or don’t run, backups that aren’t working and disk drives on the verge of failure. </p> <script type="text/javascript">gtx_ads_conf.ads["ad-manager-67709-2"]= {"custom_css":[],"ad_details":[{"min_width":"","max_width":"","dfp_ad_sizes":[{"dfp_ad_width":"300","dfp_ad_height":"250"},{"dfp_ad_width":"480","dfp_ad_height":"270"}]}],"ad_id":67709,"ad_container":"div-ad-manager-67709-2","ad_placement":"in-article","ad_name":"ad-manager-67709-2","position":"in_article","article_position":2,"out_of_page_ad":null,"lazyload":"global"};</script> <div class="ad-manager-placeholder in_article_ad in_article_ad_8" id="ad-manager-67709-2" data-ad-id="67709"> <div id="wrapper-div-ad-manager-67709-2" style="" class="gtx-ad-wrapper gtx-dfp-ad-wrapper "> <div id="div-ad-manager-67709-2" class="gtx-dfp-ad-inner-wrapper"> <script type="text/javascript"> gtx_enable_dfp(); gtx_ads_conf.ads["ad-manager-67709-2"].sizemapping = function(){ return googletag.sizeMapping().addSize( [0,0], [[300,250],[480,270]]).build();} googletag.cmd.push(function() { var ad_conf = gtx_ads_conf.ads["ad-manager-67709-2"]; var definedad = googletag.defineSlot("/4085059/nhbr/uncategorized", [[300,250],[480,270]], ad_conf.ad_container); definedad.defineSizeMapping( ad_conf.sizemapping() ); definedad.setTargeting("position", get_ad_position( ad_conf.dfp_slot ) ) if( ad_conf.ad_placement ){ definedad.setTargeting("placement", ad_conf.ad_placement+"-"+get_ad_placement_suffix( ad_conf.ad_placement ) ) } if( ad_conf.page_position ){ definedad.setTargeting("page_position", ad_conf.page_position ) } if( ad_conf.article_position ){ definedad.setTargeting("article_position", ad_conf.article_position ) } definedad.setCollapseEmptyDiv((ad_conf.article_position?true:false)); definedad.addService(googletag.pubads()); ad_slots_refresh.push(definedad); }); </script> </div> </div> </div><p>If computers go down for even five minutes, distracted employees lose even more productive time due to the interruption.</p> <p>Benefits of IT maintenance</p> <p>A New Hampshire components manufacturer cites his “on-time” model as a crucial factor in his success.
