Computer Setup and Installation

Computer setup

Getting a new computer is always two things: firstly, it is of course extremely exciting but then it’s also a little bit daunting. The great news is that it doesn’t have to be! We’ll come out to you and set up your new machine onsite where you want it and how you want it. Here are some of the things we’d recommend for connecting your new computer:

Remove unwanted programs and trialware

Many new computers come with programs and trialware – which is free, trial software that’s installed on your machine in the factory, that you didn’t ask for and probably don’t have a need for. We’ll check with you before removing it to speed up your machine and prevent those annoying pop-ups.

Perform system updates

Because of the delay between their manufacture and your purchase, many new computers will need to have the latest Windows (or other) operating system updates installed as soon as they’re taken out of the box. Avoid the headache and let us do it for you!

Software installation

You’ll probably need some software, such as Microsoft Office, installed on your computer. Our computer setup service will help get your software installed so it’s all ready for you to enjoy. If you need more help with software installation, click this link!

Hardware installation

Along with the purchase of your new computer, you may also have various add-on hardware that requires installation. This includes things like hard drives, RAM, optical drives and graphics cards. Your Geek can help get your hardware installed.

Optimise start-up and shutdown

Many different factors affect the speed at which your computer is able to start-up and shutdown. We take a look at all of them to ensure both processes are as quick as possible.

Create system recovery discs

System recovery disks are incredibly important and useful if your computer experiences hardware or software failure down the track. It’s not something that the average user often does, so it’s another great reason to call in a Geek.

Install internet security software

Internet security software will protect your computer and the personal information you have stored on it from being corrupted by viruses and malware (‘geek speak’ for malicious software) or stolen by identity thieves.

Set-up and transfer your personal information

Before leaving, we’ll finish off by setting up your most important personal information on your new computer, including your email account. If you have personal details already stored on your old machine that need transferring to the new one, your Geek can transfer your data too!
