When setting up a new or enhancing a “seasoned” Windows PC, the following Security programs, Utilities and Browsers are Your Tech Concierge’s “go-to” products. Along with Windows Important Updates, these programs will help you keep your system running smoothly and provide support when needed. This list is provided for those of you who like to “go it alone” or who are inquisitive as to “why you can’t just take a PC out of the box and start surfing the web”. The setup process routinely takes anywhere from 1 to 2 hours depending upon the speed of your PC and your Internet connection. (This doesn’t include the time it takes to install your existing or new software and transfer your data from another backup or system.)
Note: Be wary of advertisements on some of these 3rd Party websites and “tag-along” software included in these installs.
Read instructions carefully while downloading, installing and using the products below.
