Chapter 14. Setting Up Programs > Installing Programs

Installing Programs

When you bought your computer, it most likely came with certain programs already installed. Depending on the brand and model, you might have received some free programs—an antivirus program, for example. These programs should already be installed and set up on your computer.

If you want to add new programs, you can purchase the programs you want and then install them on your system. Most programs provide an installation program that automatically checks your system (to see if you have room for the new program and whether you have an existing version), copies the appropriate files, and sets up its related program icons on the Start menu. You can just sit back and click, click, click through the installation routine. Different programs employ different installation processes. That is, the steps will vary from one program to another, but installing programs is usually fairly automated.
