Welcome to your new computer!
If you are new to computers then there are a few key things you need to be aware of to keep them running smoothly.
It is highly recommended that you do a computer course of some kind to make you familiar with operating a computer.
As the operator of the computer it is your responsibility for the day to day running of the machine as well as the management of the data (files and folders) and the security, to name a few.
A great starting point would be The Computer Club in Maclean or the Yamba Community College as they have many courses to choose from.
We get asked many questions every day about how computers work, how to maintain them, how to be secure, how to stay away from viruses etc. Any computer shop can give your computer a cleanup and install an antivirus program but you need to be aware of how to keep these programs running smoothly, keeping your subscriptions up to date and how to keep your computer clean.
We perform computer cleanups and install antivirus software regularly, so if you need any help with this please call us to book in a job. Just remember, once you connect your computer to the internet you need to be careful about what you click on, as viruses and malware can get onto your computer even if you have a paid antivirus as nothing is 100% secure! Much of your protection is based on your computer habits and what you click on in your browser or email.
We have compiled a list of helpful links below from the computer industry that you may find interesting to help you on your journey with computers.
WARNING: – you will need to have enough computer knowledge to perform these tasks yourself – you are responsible for your own actions!

You need to backup your files to help protect them from loss. Malware and hardware faults can happen at any time and it is your responsibility to backup your data regularly. This is especially important before you take your computer to a repair shop as there is something wrong with the machine, so your data could be at risk. Remember, prevention is better than cure.http://windows.microsoft.com/en-au/windows7/products/features/backup-and-restore
