I bought a new computer

CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1030 Intel Core i5 750 (2.66GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.


I have a few questions about my investment.

whats is the first thing i need to do?

How do i transfer my security centre and antivirus to the new computer before i go online.

Should i make my old harddrive a slave drive on the new.

How do i keep it clean and unclutterd with crap.

So many questions and i know i have come to the right place.

Thanks Guys!

  1. Since the OS and drivers are already installed, the first thing you should do, is install your antivirus software. If you don't have one, there are some very good free ones. My personal recommendation is Avira
    http://www.avira.com/en/pages/index.php
    but Avast is also good
    http://www.avast.com/index
    and MSE is also good

    If you want to slave drive your old hard drive, you can do that. If you need help, let us know.
