Software Installation and Setup

Computer software help

There are literally thousands of software programs on the market to perform any number of tasks and meet a wide variety of different individuals’ specific needs. Some of them can be quite complicated to install and setup but fortunately, we can help you with almost any of them. Our highly recommend tech support is available at your home or business, or via remote support. Here are some of the things our Geeks can do to help you install and setup new software.

Software installation and configuration

Some software programs have specific hardware requirements or can only be used with particular brands of computer. We will advise you on whether your computer is fully compatible with the software you’d like to use. This can prevent you buying something that doesn’t work on your device!

We’ll also make recommendation on the software that you plan on purchasing to make sure it’s the right fit for your needs. Our Geeks know all the best programs and can steer you in the right direction if need be. They might even be able to recommend a free version of an app!

Install a program and configure software

Once the compatibility of the two has been confirmed, the software will be installed on your computer and its settings configured for optimal performance and ease of use. We’ll make sure the software is installed properly so that you have no problems down the line. The initial setup is often the most important step!

Perform necessary software updates

Often software that has been bought and installed out of a box will be out of date because of the fact that developers regularly release updates for the software they sell.

An out of the box package that’s been on the shelf for some time won’t have these updates included. Our computer support includes downloading and installing all of them for you so that you’re up to date.

Create desktop, start menu and quick launch shortcuts

Finally, shortcuts (which are the icons that you use to start a program) will be created on the desktop, in the start menu (for Windows) and in the quick launch menu. This makes them much easier to find so you always know where to click when looking for an application or program.
