Hi 08130832412,

Assuming you have Microsoft Windows 7 as your Operating System, you can follow any one of the three methods mentioned below:

1. First method is to install software from a software disc(CD/DVD):

a. Insert the disc into your computer, and then follow the instructions on your screen.
b. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
c. Many programs installed from CDs or DVDs open an installation wizard for the program automatically. In these cases, the AutoPlay dialog box appears and you can choose to run the wizard.
d. If a program doesn't begin installation automatically, check the information that came with the program. This information will likely provide instructions for installing the program manually.
e. If you can't access the information, you can also browse through the disc and open the program setup file, usually called Setup.exe or Install.exe.

2. Second method is to install the software from Internet:

a. In your web browser, click the link to the program.
b. Do one of the following:

i. To install the program immediately, click Open or Run, and then follow the instructions on your screen. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
ii. To install the program later, click Save, and then download the installation file to your computer. When you're ready to install the program, double-click the file, and then follow the instructions on your screen. This is a safer option because you can scan the installation file for viruses before you proceed.

3. Third method is to install the software from a network:

a. If you connect your computer to a domain (such as an internal corporate network) that has programs that you can add, you can install programs from Control Panel.
b. Open Get Programs by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, clicking Programs and Features, and then, in the left pane, clicking Install a program from the network.
c. Click a program in the list, and then click Install.
d. Follow the instructions on your screen. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Please reply if you have any further questions.
