Suggested Software:

Operating System:

We suggest using Microsoft Windows Operating Systems - They have the best support from many software/hardware vendors, and are easy to use, manage, and keep up to date.

Antivirus Software:

We suggest using a reputable antivirus software such as Microsoft Security Essentials, Norton or McAfee. There are other vendors that provide a free - basic version of Antivirus, visit the Useful Links for more information.

Web Browser:

Latest version of Internet Explorer with all of the updates is the best solution with Firefox coming in a close second. The only reason Internet Explorer is our pick is because it is compatible with many sites. Firefox is a very good browser with good functionality. The best bet is to install and try both and just use your favorite.

Word Processing Software:

Our productivity suite of choice is Microsoft Office - it is easy to use, has great functionality, and is the most widely used product, which means it will be easy to share files with others - even between Mac and PC.
