PCs can be tricky devices and working with them can often seem frustrating. The “PC Survival Course” is designed to help you get through the everyday setup and configuration tasks you need to perform on your PC with the minimum of frustration and in the most efficient way possible. With a series of practical real world examples and with hands-on practicals the course will provide you with the “missing manual” on how to use your PC.
The course is based around the Microsoft Windows operating system and focuses on users running the Microsoft Windows XP, Vista and 7.0 versions of Windows – but the techniques covered are generally applicable to all versions of Windows. The course provides a down-to-earth overview on setting up and maintaining an office PC on a network for non-technical users.
