Select which modules of the Two Minute Fix you would like installed:
  • User Interface (required) for 1-click fixes to be run on demand
  • Monitoring (required) for the Two Minute Fix remediation
  • NOTE: Remote Access*
  • NOTE: Managed Backup*
*Note: additional fees may apply for remote support or data backup. Due to this, and to ensure people don't continue to install them accidentally, these services are installed remotely by Tates PC or via the TMF interface after installation is completed as of July 3rd, 2018.

Enter your license key (note: this must include the dashes and have no leading or trailing spaces)

From this point the installer will finish everything else. If you have provided a correct license key you will have access to running on-demand scripts within 10 to 15 minutes and should have the latest antivirus definitions installed within 90 minutes.

If you have any issues feel free to open a support ticket.
