Computer Setup Vancouver

Getting a new computer is always two things: firstly, it is of course extremely exciting but then it’s also a little bit daunting. The great news is that it doesn’t have to be! We’ll come out to you and setup your new machine onsite where you want it and how you want it. Here are some of the things we’d recommend:

Remove unwanted programs and trialware

Many new computers come with programs and trialware (‘geek speak’ for free, trial software that’s installed on your machine in the factory) that you didn’t ask for and probably don’t have a need for. We’ll check with you before removing it to speed up your machine and prevent those annoying pop-ups.

Perform system updates

Because of the delay between their manufacture and your purchase, many new computers will need to have the latest Windows (or other) operating system updates installed as soon as they’re taken out of the box. Avoid the headache and let us do it for you!

Optimise start-up and shutdown

Many different factors affect the speed at which your computer is able to start-up and shutdown. We take a look at all of them to ensure both processes are as quick as possible.

Create system recovery discs

System recovery disks are incredibly important and useful if your computer experiences hardware or software failure down the track.

Install internet security software

Internet security software will protect your computer and the personal information you have stored on it from being corrupted by viruses and malware (‘geek speak’ for malicious software) or stolen by identity thieves.

Set-up/transfer your personal information

Before leaving, we’ll finish off by setting up your most important personal information on your new computer. If you have personal details already stored on your old machine that need transferring to the new one, your Geek will do that too!

Set up a unique network name

We will help set up a unique network name of your choosing so that you can easily identify yours from others in your area.

Enable wireless encryption

Using a WPA2 security key (‘computer speak for the highest level of encryption available for your router), your personal information will be protected from online hackers and your internet connection secured against use by others.

Help to Change the default admin user name and password

All new routers come with a easy, factory-set administrator username and password. This makes them relatively insecure and vulnerable to being hacked, potentially putting any personal information stored on your network at risk. Your router’s default username and password will both be updated to ones of your choosing.
