PlumChoice, a provider of remote technical support services, has announced it is now making its 24x7 internet-based computer services available to students and faculty at schools and universities. Via the internet, PlumChoice’s technicians take temporary control of the troubled computer while the user watches – even at 3 am or on holidays – eliminating the delays associated with repair shop visits, technician house calls, or do-it-yourself fixes with instructions from a call center, the announcement states.


PlumChoice offers a variety of services ranging from one-time maintenance to monthly single-service and comprehensive coverage packages.


Options include a PlumChoice PC Tune-up at $129.95 that cleans and checks the user’s machine for viruses, spyware, unnecessary files and various performance problems; a $9.95/month online Backup & Assist program that protects all of the user’s papers, pictures and music against data loss; and a $9.95/month Protect & Assist program that ensures that users don’t lose their English paper, chemistry calculations or reams of research to spyware or viruses, according to the announcement.
