New ITSS Computer Assessment and Update Service
ITSS would like departments to take advantage of our new "Computer Assessment and Update Service."

This service is designed to help a department or individual assess the current configuration and capability of their computers and update some of their software. Departments may want to have this done for all of their computers to help in planning for future upgrades and replacements.

As part of the Computer Assessment and Update Service we will:

- Determine the processor speed, the current amount of memory (RAM), and the total and available hard disk space of your computer.

- Determine the level of the operating system and whether any security updates or patches are needed

- Update the following software:
Mulberry
Netscape
Internet Explorer
Adobe Acrobat Reader
Novell client (Windows)
Norton AntiVirus

We'll also check to see whether the fan is operating properly and whether the interior of the computer is building up dust.

The price for this checkup service is $10.00 per computer for up to an hour of assessment and software installation time, and the regular ITSS staff rate for any additional work that may need to be done and is approved by you.

Summer is a good time for assessing your computing needs for next year. Please contact Frank Simmons (ext. 8849 or fsimmons@d.umn.edu) if you are interested in this service.
