How to download software from the Internet
A great place to find new software is to download it from the Internet.
Step 1: Choose a download site
Whenever you download from the Internet, remember to take standard precautions to protect your computer from viruses, hackers and other security threats by having up-to-date anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewall and other applicable security software installed on your computer. It is also recommended that you only download software from a reputable publisher. It is also recommended that you only install software that has an uninstall option; that way you should be able to easily remove the software from your computer when you no longer need it.
Step 2: Download the software
Once you've found a software program you want to download, click the download link.
Your Web browser might display a security dialog box asking you whether you want to commence the download. To continue, click Save.
When the Save As dialog box is displayed, select a location where the software can be downloaded to. You might want to create a new folder on your computer especially for software downloads.
Click Save to commence the download. A dialog box might be displayed to show the progression of the download.
Step 3: Running the completed download
Once your download has completed, if your Web browser displays a download complete confirmation box, click Open Folder. Scan the download for viruses. Your software download is then ready to install.
