Installing a new PC takes time, so patience is needed first and foremost.
That said, here’s what we would recommend for a new installation:
- Windows updates.
Get to the point that Windows states that there are no more updates required. Make sure that you are getting them from Microsoft as sometimes.
- Antivirus Software.
Install Eset next, as this provides protection to the PC.
- Microsoft Office.
Install this and connect Outlook to the email services, then run the Windows updates to get the Office updated – again keep going until nothing is required.
Connect to all required printers and set the default – you may need some drivers for some of the printers.
Personal preferences rule here, but we would usually install:
- Adobe PDF reader
- Configure the Start button.
Right click the start button – select properties and click the customize button. We suggest at least adding the ‘Run command’.
- Propriety software.
Many clients use specific software for the day to day business activities, these need installing and configuring.
That should put you in a good position to use the PC
