Computer Support

A computer support consultant is a seasoned consulting role which involves contract programming and system administration. Quite a tedious job, a computer support consultant is basically hired on a contract basis and usually the consultants are experts in computer administration and dealing.


The basic concept behind hiring computer consultants is to fit into the role of the expert and get services which are otherwise not found in the employees of the company. This skill of the consultant is hired by the companies to fill in the gap and ensure smoother functioning of the company.
The computer support consultants are required to train the employees in the company who have been hired on a permanent basis. The whole idea is to train the permanent employees in such a way that they will take over the services rendered by the consultant after the training process is over.
After the underlying issues are resolved by the computer consultant, the contract usually expires. The contract can be renewed if there are other areas or department in the company which have similar issues. Otherwise the consultant leaves the company.


While this whole process is also a learning curve experience for the computer support consultant, the consultant can earn more money in the process. The difference between a permanent employee and a consultant is that while the former has a job wherein years might be spend on a single project.
It is a reliable and less-demanding job as compared to a consultant's. Because the latter have contracts of up to 3 months or even lesser and will have to apply for jobs every few months. The chief criteria to be qualified as a computer support consultant are to possess good and specialized skills which qualify the person to be a hired giving expert advice to companies.

Nokia Booklet 3G in Microsoft Operating Sytem

The Nokia Booklet 3G is here with a bang. It was released around the time when the Microsoft Operating System, Windows 7, was launched. The Nokia Netbook comes loaded with Windows 7 and this has been done deftly keeping in mind the release of Windows 7. It comes at a subsidized price, $299 with an added 2 year data plan from telecommunication giants, AT & T and has been made available at all Best Buy stores across the U.S.. This announcement from the Finnish phone maker comes with a relief for customers. When the product was first disclosed in September, it was priced at an astonishing $820. This was quite an exorbitant sum as Netbooks comes for less than $500 these days.
One can also notice that Nokia has a tie-up with AT&T for a two-year service agreement which gives more feasibility to the subsidized price. There are offers coming from Best Buy as well. It plans to come up with the unique 'Walk Out Working' scheme, which will enable the customer to get his product activated and working before he leaves the store. For anyone who purchases the Booklet 3G, sales associates will configure and activate the Netbook. Nokia has kept the screen size at 10.1-inch and its Netbook has almost all the features that are available on Netbooks. It has an Atom processor, a built-in GPS , a 12-hour battery life, an aluminum casing, 3G and Wi-Fi wireless capability and height and weight specifics of 1 inch and 2.5 pounds.
There are added features on the Netbook such as Nokia Music for PC and Nokia's Ovi Suite 2.0 which have been made quite proficient and compatible with the Microsoft Operating System as well. There is also an aggregator coming from the feeds from social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook etc. with its Ovi Maps and Social Hub application. Customers can also get the notebook without the option of opting for the two-year service agreement from AT&T. This option, however, comes for the an unsubsidized price of $599.

Before making a purchase for a new computer, everyone makes sure that they have set their eyes on a good computer tech support service which can provide good tech support as well.

This makes more sense when a user is on the look-out for computer systems which can serve businesses, since the machines will be the best tool for administrative needs. Choosing and selecting for the best tech support services is trciky and needs careful analysis before a user zeroes in on one. Most companies with tech support usually subscribe to a single product and there is always the chance of having to purchase an additional product when assistance is asked for. This makes the user bear some extra cost.

There is the need for good tech support services created by leading computer tech support individuals who are experts in the field. The experts should have good knowledge of what goes into many different types of computers and should have a thorough understanding of the way that all models of these computers will function. Technical glitches, irrespective of what computer you have, should be fixed quickly and efficiently by tech support specialists.

These experts should have complete understanding of the most complex of issues releated to computers in order to give you the computer tech support that a user or a customer will need. They should be referred to in order to find the best method to ensure that all technical issues are dealt with at the right time. When running a business, one cannot afford to have a computer which has been lying dormant for a long time.

Computers are vulnerable to technical glitches and so getting the right computer tech support to fix the issue without putting the computer into any further risk is very essential.

Windows 7 Accessory Upgrade

Windows 7 accessories have seen some nice upgrades. These improvements are long over-due.

Windows 7 Calculator

The Windows 7 calculator has some nice new features. The keyboard is subtly redesigned and is easier to read. You now have the option of a multi-line display that shows a history of what you've keyed into the calculator. There are more calculation modes. Besides simple mode, there is scientific mode, a programmers mode and a statistics mode. The digit grouping makes it much easier to read long numbers.
There is also a whole raft of extra functionality that takes place in an additional pane to the right of the calculator when these special functions are enabled.
Windows 7 calculator date worksheet Functions include:

* Unit conversion
* Date calculations
* Mortgage worksheet
* Vehicle lease worksheet
* Fuel consumption worksheets (mpg and L/100 km)
The new Windows 7 calculator is now more useful than ever.

Perhaps some day they will add plugins to the mix. Those worksheets have really captured my imagination. A financial calculator would be great. Such things may be on the way.

Windows 7 Microsoft Paint

Windows 7 Paint Microsoft Paint has seen a big upgrade. It has more of the Microsoft office look with a modern ribbon design, and more functionality to go with it.
There are a variety of brushstrokes to choose from, more powerful text functions (for example, the text changes as you hover over the drop down menus for different fonts), there is a crop tool (it's about time!) and a number of other nice features.
Microsoft paint is beginning to go beyond a toy. All they need to do is to keep the various shapes and lines as objects, add some alignment tools, and it will be come a handy little graphics tool for quite drawings and annotating images and screen captures.
Certainly it is a lot more fun than it ever was before, and a lot more usable too. At least it has rulers and gridlines to help out with your design work.

Windows 7 WordPad

Windows 7 WordPad has been upgraded as well. It too has a new ribbon giving it a more modern look.

Added functions like inserting pictures and direct integration with Paint are nice touches.

It's a pretty decent little word processor if you don't need anything beyond the most basic formatting. I doubt it will ever see more powerful formatting options like styles and tables.

Microsoft Windows Users and iYogi Predict a Surge in Tech Support for Windows 7 Upgrades

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 16, 2009 -- iYogi, the on-demand tech services company with a unique global delivery model, announced today the results of a consumer poll regarding support concerns and predictions for the upcoming launch of the new Microsoft Windows 7 operating system. Based on responses from more than 1,000 Windows XP and Windows Vista users, 52 percent think that moving to a new operating system and moving their data is a hassle, suggesting some real frustrations on the near horizon. Nearly half (47 percent) think upgrading to Microsoft Windows 7 may require a call to technical support - potentially causing a huge backlog of support needs, as up to 40 million copies of Windows 7 are expected to be sold in 2009, according to IDC.

"We predict that more than 40 percent of XP users will generate support calls and inquiries globally this year and even more in 2010 as mass adoption kicks in and people face the prospect of dealing with an entirely new interface," said Vishal Dhar, President Marketing & Co-founder of iYogi. "We estimate twice as many support calls for current Windows XP users than Windows Vista users, since Microsoft Windows XP users will require a 'clean' install including migrating applications, settings and drivers--a potentially arduous, time-intensive task."

We predict that more than 40 percent of XP users will generate support calls and inquiries globally this year and even more in 2010 as mass adoption kicks in and people face the prospect of dealing with an entirely new interface

In News: iYogi Re-Defines Technical Support –

Remote managed services are gaining a lot of attraction these days. Companies are looking to outsource the maintenance and monitoring of their IT infrastructure to a third party to improve efficiency and save costs. caught up with Uday Challu, founding partner and CEO, iYogi, to see what the company has to offer in this space.

As far as Enterprise and SME customers are concerned, which verticals are you focusing on?

Our focus will mostly be on small companies with around five to 100 users and also firms that have multiple small branch offices like travel agencies, retail stores etc.

What kind of support services do you provide to your customers? What is the Green PC service?

iYogi provides the next generation of remote computer support services for consumers and businesses. For consumers, our live 24/7 support extends to technologies we use everyday, including hardware, software applications, devices, peripherals and networking equipment. iYogi also offers a full range of business IT solutions including managed monitoring, managed services, set-up and installation services, and incident-based services.

Green PC Service

With the current state of the global climate and increasing dependency on the computer, iYogi helps PC users reduce their carbon footprint and save money at the same time. iYogi’s Green PC service is the first in the independent computer support industry to offer customers a way to save money, conserve energy and protect the environment by optimising their PC’s efficiency. Consumers and businesses can save up to $200 per year, per desktop, in energy costs with iYogi’s Green PC application. This green application makes the computer environmentally friendly by reducing power consumption by almost 50 percent.

Our Green PC dashboard helps customise power settings and calculate power savings in kWh (kilowatt hour). The Green PC dashboard also gives a status on the reduction of CO2 and how responsible usage will benefit the environment by saving trees. A customised service that increases the energy efficiency of computers, undertakes the below-mentioned three primary initiatives:

- Computer assessment, analysing settings and PC energy use
- Customised efficiency planning geared specifically to the individual’s usage patterns
- Implementing setting changes to maximise the computer’s energy use

What are the technologies that allow you to offer 24/7 support and ensure there is no downtime at the client site?

We have invested significantly in developing a comprehensive monitoring and management tools stack. This enables us to manage and monitor all devices in the office network as well as for branch offices and mobile users. Our tools continuously monitor the customer’s network and notify our NOC (Network Operations Centre) in case of problems. Based on the set of events, tickets are automatically generated and escalated to corresponding teams. Over and above our proactive approach, the customer always has an option to call our 24X7 support line for issues that are not identified via the monitoring tools.

Please throw some light on your proprietary iMantra technology.

iMantra is a CRM system, which is tailor-made to suit the emerging business needs at iYogi. It allows for the formation of individualised customer relationships with the aim of providing personalised services to each subscriber. This tool is built on the latest java technology with a layered architecture that makes it scalable and secure. This architecture provides a seamless workflow and independent channels for various business needs: sales, support, quality and customer service. The entire system can be exposed in the form of secure APIs and Web services, which makes it a re-usable entity.

Your business model is similar to BPOs in India providing technical support to offshore customers. What unique values do you bring to this ecosystem that would help a potential client choose you over a competitor?

iYogi’s business model is different from traditional BPOs. Some key factors that differentiate iYogi include:

- Direct-to-consumer and -small business: iYogi delivers technical support services directly to consumers and small businesses and is a global technical support brand based out of India. Unlike traditional BPOs in India, iYogi does not provide any private label support and/ or work on behalf of large OEMs or software publishers.

- Optimised Processes: iYogi has developed proprietary processes for consistently delivering on a resolution rate of 87 percent, which is among the highest published benchmarks in the support industry, where averages hover in the range of 50 percent.

- Comprehensive technology platform: iYogi’s global delivery platform, iMantra, gets smarter with every customer interaction. It documents every problem, the solution and relevant hardware and software aspects, while capturing each customer’s demographic information and creating a behavioural profile. All of this information is at the fingertips of iYogi’s Global Tech Experts. This set-up combines a knowledge base with a comprehensive set of tools and technology expertise. iYogi offers a range of tools that complement its remote support services for helping customers maintain technology at peak performance levels. iYogi’s products include iYogi Smart PC Scan, iYogi Support Dock, iYogi Green PC and iYogi PC Optimisation.

How do you plan to move up the value chain in the times to come?

The growing use and penetration of the Internet and new Web-based applications has consequently opened the door to threats and vulnerabilities, which affect the system performance and ultimately lead to degrading performance. If the threats are diagnosed early on, the impact on efficiency can be minimised considerably. Currently, a user only realizes that he needs technical support once the damage has occurred and reactive methods of support are used to recover from the loss.

At iYogi, we are developing our capabilities to not only provide support when demanded, but to also monitor, pre-empt and fix threats before they can cause any damage to the computer. This will be possible only by combining technology with processes that are capable of re-defining the way technical support is delivered today.

What is your India strategy?

Technically, we are capable of servicing any geography including India. At this stage, we are looking for the right kind of partners to find access to potential customers and provide them a consolidated, 360-degree solution and services for issues relating to hardware, software, network etc. We aim to launch our India services in the coming six to eight months. Our services will offer clients a one-stop solution for all their business needs.

How to Install MS Office 2003

Minimum System Requirements for Microsoft Office 2003 Professional

  • Processor: 233 MHz or higher; Pentium III recommended.
  • Operating System: Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 or later, or Windows XP or later.
  • RAM: 64 MB (minimum); 128 MB (recommended)
  • Hard drive space: 450 MB.

Note: Hard disk space usage varies depending on the configuration; Custom installation choices may require more or less hard disk space; selection of the 'Complete' installation choice will require more hard disk space. The above listed requirement is for the default configuration.

Additional information on the system requirements for Microsoft Office 2003 Professional and specific items and services can be found at the Microsoft help and support website.

The Installation Process

Insert the Office 2003 Installation CD into your CD drive. After a few seconds of copying installation files to your computer, the installation will begin. If the installation does not begin automatically, open 'My Computer', then open the OFFICE11 CD, and double-click the SETUPPRO.EXE.

You will be prompted for the Office 2003 product key.

Type the product key from the back of the CD. Use only five characters per field box, and ensure that there are a total of 25 characters. When you are finished, click 'Next'. If you are unable to locate the product key then click on the windows help icon on the product key page to open the Microsoft help topic page.

The next screen of the Office 2003 Installer will prompt you for your user name, initials, and organisation. Click 'Next' once this information is entered correctly.

The next window displays the End-User License Agreement (EULA). Click the checkbox at the bottom corresponding to 'I accept the terms in the License Agreement'. It is recommended that you go through this once. Then click 'Next'.

The next window displays the installation options for Office 2003. If you just want to install everything that Office provides, click the selection button corresponding to 'Complete' under the 'or choose an install type' option. Then click 'Next' at the bottom of the window. The other options are as follows:

Typical Install: As the name implies, this option installs the programs and options most commonly used by the masses. Complete Install: Installs every program and every option that your edition has to offer onto the hard drive.

Minimal Install: This is a bare-bones installation that is a viable choice if you're low on hard drive space.

Custom Install: Here's where you'll find maximum configurability. If you have a good idea of how you'll be using Office and its individual applications, this selection will let you tailor the installation more tightly to your specific needs. If you don't do a complete install, later on, you can always install any component that you want. Of course, you will need the Office CD to do this. With the large hard drives of today, if you have the storage to spare, we recommend the 'Complete Install' option, particularly if you will use the software to produce work under time constraints. Limited or partial installations of Office can create problems at the most inopportune moments. You may call up what you would expect to be a routine feature in Word, for example, and discover that the feature was never installed in the first place. When that happens, the program will run an installation routine that calls for the installation CD to be placed in the original CD drive that was used during installation.

If you don't have the CD handy, it's easy enough to cancel the routine and continue work without that feature, but as you may expect, this doesn't always work smoothly. You've probably seen

Word, or another Office component, crash-more than once-when the program tried to install a requested feature and the original installation CD wasn't available.

Once you're done choosing what type of install to do, the 'Begin Installation' window will appear. Click on the 'Install' button at the bottom of the window. This will start the process of installing Microsoft Office 2003 on your computer. After starting installation, a progress bar will be displayed showing that Microsoft Office 2003 is currently being installed on your computer. The time to complete the install will vary based on how fast your computer is.

The installer will inform you when the setup is complete. You will have the option to check for Microsoft Office updates and delete your installation files. Ensure that 'Check the Web for updates and additional downloads' is checked, and that 'Delete installation files' is unchecked. This is to ensure that if Office later finds a file missing, or if a file goes corrupt, it can recover it from these installation files. Click the 'Finish' button.

The installer will close. Internet Explorer should appear and take you to the Microsoft support website for installing office updates ( If the Web browser doesn't appear, open Internet Explorer and go to the Microsoft support web site yourself. Click on the 'Check for Updates' link.

You will be prompted to install and run the 'Office Update Installation Engine'. This engine will allow Microsoft to scan and update Office 2003 via the Web. Click 'Yes' to install it.

The windows support site will display any updates necessary. If there are any updates listed, follow the on-screen instructions to download and install them. Otherwise, close the Internet Explorer.

Microsoft Excel Backup Assistent

Today i am going to discuss and list Microsoft Office support tips for how to use Excel backup Assistant.The Backup Assistant is designed to help you make backup copies of your workbooks before you make changes to them. One of its most useful features is to prompt you to backup a file immediately after it is opened! Eliminate the worry about messing up a file and not having an up-to-date backup.

Do you have these problems:

* Important files that need to be routinely saved?
* Trouble remembering to backup important files/folders?
* Trouble remembering the directory of a backed up file?

The Backup Assistant can solve all of these problems and more!

To use, just select File/Backup Assistant to display the following dialog:
The first two options allow you to either backup the active file or to backup a group of files. The name of the active file is shown on the first option button. If you select the option to backup a group of files all of the files you have open are displayed in the selection list including hidden files like Personal.xls.

The second group of options allows you to select the destination directory. To use the option of a default backup directory you must first specify the directory by using the button "Set / Change Default Directory". If you use the option to select a directory you can either select a directory via a directory list or by a list of the past 30 directories you have selected via this option.

The checkbox immediately below the directory selection options allows you to have the backup files put in a subdirectory of the specified folder named "Backup YYYY MM DD" (example: Backup 2003 12 02) that is created if needed. This gives you the option to segregate your backups by day backed up.
The next set of options allows you to specify the file name. The first option saves the backup with the year month day hour and minute that the backup file was created. Other options allow you to specify a suffix or prefix or the file name that will be used

The last two checkboxes give you the option to prevent a file being over written without your approval and to save the current file before making the backup. The backup that is created is a copy of the workbook with all edits that have been done to it up to the point of backup. By saving the original file you insure that it and the backup are identical.

As you can see the Backup Assistant is completely menu driven. The menus are easy to follow and use. When you select options on the main dialog they are bolded so that you can easily see which ones are selected. And to help you learn how to use the features of the Backup Assistant, there is an exercise file to give you hands on practice. To open it, just select the Help/About button.

The Options button gives you the following choices:

* Creation of a quick access button
* Ability to turn-off the automatic prompt for backup when a workbook is opened.
