When you bought a new PC, or you want to just clean and reset everything on your old PC, the hassle of setting up Windows again and setting up all your programs can be tiring. That is why you need to get a third party service who will set up your computer as you need it to be without you having to take all the hassle and the responsibility.
You may need to have your Windows PC set up in a couple of cases – one, you got a new PC. Some new PCs come with only FreeDOS or just no operating systems installed. In that case, you need to separately purchase a copy of Windows, which then you have to install on your PC. If you are not very tech savvy, setting up Windows can be a bit cumbersome for the first time. Even with the newest Windows 10, the installation part is still similar to that of Windows 7 that came out years back.
The second case could be that you need to format your hard drive and perform a clean installation of Windows. This is usually done when your computer was infected with viruses or other malware and it messed up with some Windows settings, or you want to upgrade to the newer versions of Windows.
Moreover, you may need to set up your PC sometimes when you get new hardware, perform a hardware upgrade or something similar. In any case, getting your PC set up by a reliable service is always a good thing. Call up the KnowHow contact number to know more.
Here’s what you need to look:
On-Site Versus Off Site Servicing:Check if your service provider will set up your PC at your home or office in your presence or whether you will have to take your computer to their store. Usually setting up Windows takes some minutes to a few hours depending on the device and the requirements. If it is a new computer, then the setup time will be short and can be performed on site. For repairing Windows installations, or performing clean installations, off-site services are better because they take time. Check with the service provider what sort of service they provide, their privacy policies and if you are comfortable with that or not.
Data Migration Policy: When you give a computer that has your data for a Windows reinstall, know first how they will handle your data. In certain cases, data may be lost. Also, if they have to migrate the data from your older Windows account to the newer Windows user account, they will need to make a copy of the data. Then, they will delete their copy of the data once the migration process is done. Double check with the service provider on how they treat user data during these processes.
Setting Up Other Programs: Check if your service provider will also install the drivers and other programs that you will use on a regular basis, such as Microsoft Office. Obviously, you can activate the programs when you have access to the computer. Also, make sure that they do not provide you with any pirated or unlicensed software.
