It is a best practice to restart your system that integrates with PC*MILER|Connect on a regular basis such as once per week. This is due to the fact that the Windows operating system resources such as memory, disk space and TCP/IP ports may be in use by PC*MILER and other vendor applications. A system reboot ensures that these resources are returned to the Windows OS and reduces the chance that PC*MILER will slow down due to lack of operating system resources. ALK recommends rebooting at least once per week, when users are least affected by the system outage.
