  2. 2. INSTALLING OPEN OFFICE
  3. 3. DOWNLOAD THE PROGRAM I have loaded up the program and I have followed the on-screen instructions to download the program.
  4. 4. DOWNLOAD THE PROGRAM It has taken me to the download section, The download is in process.
  5. 5. INSTALL OPEN OFFICE The program has downloaded, The installer has booted up automatically, open office is a free alternative to Microsoft office word.
  6. 6. INSTALL OPEN OFFICE Now the program has to be installed, I have used the default path that it has asked for. Yet you can change this to another destination if required. This location will be where all of the program files will be stored.

  9. 9. INSTALLING AVG
  10. 10. DOWNLOADING THE PROGRAM AVG is an antivirus program, it is vital for any online device as it protects the user from hackers and malicious attacks.
  11. 11. DOWNLOADING AVG As before, after downloading, the program will install.
  12. 12.  The screenshots above show the first stages of the installation of AVG free, he doesn’t need the paid version as the main feature that you pay for is support, this can be found freely online. Bonus features like disk clean-up functions would not be needed due to the free alternatives available.
  13. 13.  This is the final installation part, the computer is almost protected, after the installation is complete it is recommended that you check for updates, and then perform a full system scan.  I chose express install as the custom install just lets you change the installation path. And perhaps some extras (such as a shortcut on the home screen).
  14. 14. AFTERWARDS  After the program has installed, you would need to check for updates, I have not provided pictures for this, but I also created a ‘routine task’ so the antivirus system will check for updates everyday automatically.  The same goes for anti-virus scans, which are set routinely. This ensures that the system would be safe from any new threats that may appear.
