What New Jersey Residents Can Expect From Our New Computer Setup Service
Before you sit down to set up your new computer, there doesn’t seem to be much to it. But there are many steps that must be completed in order, including important but seemingly negligible ones.
We have new computer setup checklists that are specific to PC, Mac, and desktop computers. And while you can set up a new PC without a Microsoft account, we advise Windows PC users to have one. Our technician will help you set it up as well as optimizing your new computer’s start-up and shutdown processes to speed up them up.
For new Mac setups specifically, the technician will help you migrate your itunes library and sync all your i-devices, among other setup tasks. If you’re new to the Mac laptops, the technician will guide you on how to use the Mac operating system and show you it’s different keyboard shortcuts and where all your files are located.
Generally, the following steps are standard on all new computer setup jobs our technicians undertake for clients across New Jersey:
Check For Updates To Bring Your New Computer’s Operating System Up To Date
Your computer may be new but there will likely be a significant time difference between its date of manufacture and your purchase. In between the two dates, several operating system updates would have been released.
Unless you update the operating system to the latest version, you will experience a performance lag on your new computer. We will manually check for updates to make sure the new computer performs optimally from the get-go.
We don’t just make sure your computer’s operating system updates to the latest version. We also set up your new computer to receive regular updates to ensure your computer’s protection and performs well now and going forward.
Our technicians will also check your new computer’s drivers to make sure all your hardware components sync and work together for a seamless computing experience. We will update those that need to be updated, although admittedly, Windows now does a good job of this on its own.
Removing All Bloatware To Ensure No Unnnessary Software Slows Down Your New Computer
Computer manufacturers have the habit of pre-loading the Windows 10 OS with proprietary firmware. Many of these programs don’t save any purpose at all, besides promoting the manufacturer and their vendors’ products.
Bloatware, if not removed, slows down your PC and eat up your storage space. Between manual ways and software, we use any tools that will do the job faster and efficiently.
Install All The Applications You Need To Operate Your New Computer Productively And Safely
Applications are important installations on modern devices that expand your new computer’s usage scope. The most important of these will be your web browser. While Google Chrome may seem an automatic choice, there are other browsers that are just as solid and capable. We will walk you through the pros and cons of the different browser options.
While you can set up a new PC without a Microsoft account, it is advisable for Windows PC users to have one. Our technician will help you set it up.
You likely have multiple passwords for social media, bank, and other online accounts. The common advice is to not use the same password for all your accounts as that increases the chances of the password falling into the wrong hands. For this reason, we encourage installing a password manager where you will safely keep all your different passwords.
Do you want to enable Cortana, the Microsoft AI assistant? If smart assistants aren’t your thing then, fair enough, you can proceed without it. Many, though, find them handy. Our technician will also guide you through the install for Office 365, which is an essential add-on to Windows 10.
Importantly, we want to set up your new computer so it does not install programs in the background without your knowledge. You must know what runs on your computer at all times.
Install Anti-Virus Software To Add Another Layer Of Security
For PCs, Windows Defender now does a good job of securing your computer. But because there are threats to your online security coming in every direction – a consequence of spending so much time online – there is absolutely no harm in adding another layer of security.
We will help you shop for an anti-virus software to protect your new computer from viruses and malware. There will be security trialware that come preinstalled on your new computer, so will consider those options, too. We don’t stop there:
Our technician will also give you a crash course on how to stay safe online. They will guide you on how to:
- Protect your personal information, including how to keep it professional and limited (we will show you where your privacy settings are)
- Secure your internet connection and advise on how to browse safely, emphasizing the importance of being careful with your downloads,
- Choose strong, safe passwords.
Connect All The Peripheral Devices You Need For Your New Computer
Desktop computers involve a bit of work to set up as there will be several peripherals to connect. Our technician will setup a default printer and configure other hardware, including your modem, router, keyboard, and mouse.
The technician will also check the drivers for the different peripherals and update those that need updating. Our technicians will happily make hardware and software suggestions for you. We try to be as helpful as we can.
