Own a Laptop or Desktop ?

If you bought a branded laptop or desktop then it probably came with many unwanted trail programs pre-installed. You should first remove those pre-installed trial versions. To do this you need

You must also be having an internet connection and would be browsing the web quite often. I would suggest you use Firefox. Firefox is slightly better than internet explorer.

    As far as Emails are concerned create at least two email accounts I recommend Gmail.comas primary email address to share with your friends and family. For others use the secondary email address.

    The trial version of Microsoft Office on your computer will usually expire and if you are looking for a free office suite I suggest Open Office it has all the basic feature you would need in an Office suite.

    Sometimes you will get files that will not open on your computer. Just pay a visit tozamzar.com and convert the file into some simple formats which your computer can open.
