It’s been a day.
Today I helped Helen get her computer up and running. She bought a Compaq and needed some help getting it set up and all that. So…
First, I had to delete all the CRAP that was put on there. That really irritates me. Why the heck do computer manufacturers put a bunch of unnecessary crap on the computer? They could pack a CD with all that info on it if they wanted.
After that, I set up MS Office for her. It was installed, but she needed it activated.
Then we got the internet working. I installed Firefox and Gaim and got her set up with MSN. I showed her how to use the internet, showed her some of the cool stuff she can do with it, and also showed her how to use Gaim. I hope she uses it.
That took a while. Most of the time was spent deleting the crap off of the computer. Another large portion of time was spent installing stuff. I got her Comodo Firewall and Anti-virus. Those should keep her safe for a while. I also set her up with Edwido Anti-Spyware. If she follows the recommended schedule, she will be safe.
I also got her an email address and showed her how to use it.
I like showing people the stuff they can do with their computers. It’s cool to show somebody and have them understand what I’m telling them. Anyway, I hope she understood what I was telling her.
Off to watch TV. I’m tired.
EDIT: I can’t get my flow down on what I write. My writing sounded horrible after I let it sit for a couple days.
