A regular client was bought a new laptop and asked me to visit because he couldn’t figure out Windows 8.1. I went round to visit to help him, give a little tuition, and set things up for him including:
- Uninstalled the free trial of McAfee LiveSafe – if your trial runs out and you don’t pay up then you won’t have full antivirus protection
- Set up free antivirus
- Installed my recommended additional security software, that prevents unwanted software from being installed – the client already has an annual licence for this for less than £20 per year which allows installation on up to three PCs. This is much better value in my opinion than paying for McAfee or Norton.
- Installed his printer software – he couldn’t find the CD that came with the printer, so I downloaded the correct version and installed it for him
