This post is the fourth in a 10-post series about the all-new version 2 of the Maintenance Checkup Home Edition (MCHE) computer maintenance software from Schrock Innovations. You can win a FREE 2-year subscription by simply posting a comment on any of the MCHE posts. Only one free subscription will be given away, so post multiple comments or questions with your valid email address to increase your odds of winning!

Throughout the short history of security software, companies have benchmarked the evolution of their products by tacking a year after the name of the program. We did this with the 2005 version of the Maintenance Checkup Home Edition (MCHE), just as Symantec uses a year to differentiate their products (ex. Norton Antivirus 2007).

Every year, security companies talk about the latest and greatest advancements in their newest software version in an effort to get their users to purchase the new, full version rather than extending the subscriptions for the out-dated products they already have installed. For example, users of Norton Antivirus 2005 might decide to save some money by renewing their 2005 software and as a result forgo the software advancements available in the newer Norton Antivirus 2007 product.


With the all-new version 2 of the MCHE, you might notice there is no year attached the name this time. That is because the unique subscription model behind the MCHE ensures that you are always running the latest available version of the program and enjoying all of its benefits, regardless of when you first installed it.

With version 2 of the MCHE you can select one of two different subscription options depending on your needs and preferences. For a mere $4.99 per month, you can enjoy the latest protection and maintenance offered by the MCHE. Each month our automated system charges the credit card we have on file for you, and a receipt is delivered to your email inbox.

This new model has a number of benefits for the user. First, we will always be looking for new and innovative ways to protect the interests of our customers because you can cancel your subscription at any time, for any reason. We understand that we have certain performance and support levels to live up to, and if we fail to meet those expectations you may elect to find someone who does. Secondly, because all subscription information is stored on our update server instead of your computer, there are no complicated renewal processes, forms, or installations to complete. Each month that you purchase is seamlessly added to your subscription behind the scenes without as much as a hiccup.

Of course, those who prefer to buy the MCHE up front on an annual basis can still do so. But we are strongly encouraging the monthly option to all of our users. It is less expensive in the long run and the only time you need to worry about your subscription is when your credit card is expiring.

Check back tomorrow to learn how the MCHE protects you from home and search page hijacking programs.

    Very timely. I’m getting one of your holiday computers in March and plan to add the MCHE. The automatic operation and updates is great.

    Having dial-up, I’m not hooked up to the net all the time. Will updates just ‘hold’ until I choose to go online?
