Computer setup with all the right cords & placement

Getting your new computer configured can be an exciting experience, as it marks the beginning of a fresh chapter with a more powerful and efficient device. One of the most important aspects of this process is ensuring that your computer is set up with all the right cords (& plugs!) and that it is placed in an comfortable location.

By taking the time to correctly organise your cords and placement, you can create a more streamlined and clutter-free workspace, ultimately enhancing your productivity.

Remove unwanted programs, junkware and trialware

When setting up a new computer, it is common to find pre-installed programs, junkware, and trialware that can clutter your system and negatively impact its performance. These unwanted applications consume valuable system resources and storage space, leading to a slower and less efficient computing experience.

Trial anti-virus programs can also be removed and your paid (or free) security product installed, to ensure your computer remains secure after the 30 day trial period ends.

We take a look at all of them, identify, and remove these unnecessary programs to ensure your new computer runs smoothly and efficiently from the start.

Software installation

PC software is an integral part of setting up a new computer, as it ensures you have all the required applications to get started. Installing software like Microsoft 365 provides you with access to the Office suite, including essential productivity tools such as Word, Excel, and Outlook The additional hurdle is locating your Microsoft credentials in order to download this software. These programs enable you to create and edit documents, manage spreadsheets, and organise your emails efficiently.

Additionally, installing a reliable web browser such as Google Chrome (or Firefox) allows for seamless browsing, access to web applications, and syncing of bookmarks. We also migrate your old computer’s Google Chrome profile to the new computer so you do not lose anything and everything feels familiar.

Adobe Reader, is another valuable software, enables you to view and interact with PDF files, a common file format for documents and forms.

By carefully selecting and installing the right software, we customise your new computer to suit your needs and preferences, allowing for a more efficient and enjoyable computing experience.
