Free Y2K Test Tool For All PC’s –
First Time Offer By y2kEasyFix.com
Mar. 3, 1999 — Vestal, NY — Small Businesses and individuals can
now easily and safely test their PC’s for Y2K compliance using a
nationally recognized test tool that is supported by the NSTL
(National Software Testing Laboratories). This test utility is free
and has been used by hundreds of thousands already. It is available
for immediate download and use at the y2kEasyFix website:
Along with the utility are additional step by step directions for its
use and an e-mail address for free trouble – shooting.
Nearly everyone with a PC will face some kind of compliance problem
with their computer system. About 70% of PC’s in use will need a
hardware fix but the problem facing most computer users is that they
don’t know if they are one of the 70% or not. PC manufacturers and
retailers are not willing to offer any compliance statements, even on
many of the newest systems. This leaves most PC users in the dark.
“This is a ‘no – brainer’ test that everyone can use very easily and
in under 15 minutes they will know whether Y2K will cause them any
problems when the Year 2000 rolls over”, says Al Anderson, Computer
Consultant and Y2K expert for Y2KEasyFix.com. Mr. Anderson also
states, “The last straw was another of the major news media gave out
possibly harmful advice when they suggested people can just set their
computer clocks ahead and test the results. That can cause a lot of
problems. So, we decided to offer the test tool for free and
hopefully prevent some unnecessary headaches.”
Mrs. Bonni Phelps, owner of her own small business on the internet,
has this to say, “What a relief! We have tested all 7 computers in
our business and now know how to deal with each of them – at no cost.
We had a local computer Consultant quote us $90.00 per PC just to
test and diagnose. Also, we went ahead and spent a total of $29.95
with y2kEasyFix.com and now have the information to make all our
software and operating systems compliant.” Mrs. Phelps is only one
example of the many people being helped by this free offer.
