In the era of an easily-Googled Internet, this download feels a bit dated, but could nevertheless be helpful. It's essentially a compilation of technical support articles, aimed at teaching a novice user about the guts and operations of their PC, from printing problems to system files. As such, it feels a bit like a gigantic FAQ. The application itself probably isn't as convenient as an ordinary Web search. The font can't be resized, and characters are small, making it sometimes difficult to read. A helpful glossary of computer terms is included, but Search and some individual sections are disabled in the trial version.
If you're looking for a handy desktop resource, and don't have a computer guru around to help fix problems, this might be a good investment, although we'd advise many users to simply try the Internet first.
In The Electronic Computer Tutor we have placed a computer glossary of the most used computer terminology. You no longer have to be in the dark wondering what the gurus are saying.
We have also put in a section on hardware. Click on what you want to learn more about and you will get a pop-up screen telling you about it or you will be taken to a screen with a much more in depth break-down. This will give you an appreciation for your computer as well as a much better understanding of how it works.
The Electronic Computer Tutor has a section about basic computer maintenance. Often, the problems that we as computer consultants encounter with our client's computers are related to a lack of maintenance. With a few simple steps, your computer can stay problem free for years.
Our program has a special powerful Internet section and a Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10 tutorial modules. We explain what the Internet and Windows are and teach about their high points.
