Solutions for all your software problems


Even those among us who spend a lot of time on the computer could be unaware of what goes into the machines. As such, it’s not unheard of for an experienced Web-surfer to ask: “What is software, exactly?” Complex as the inner workings of today’s computers can be, the answer to the question is quite straightforward. Software is the name used for groups of instructions that serve to allow users to perform tasks with a computer. Software is what brings functionality to computers – without it, they would serve no real purpose.


There is a type of software for everything we do on the computer, but some examples of the most prominent forms are:


  • Computer operating systems
  • Antivirus programs
  • Movie or music players
  • Internet browsers
  • Device drivers
  • Databases
  • Email clients
  • Graphics programs
  • Word processors and spreadsheets
  • Games

The software Experts on JustAnswer can help you navigate your problems by providing you with useful steps and guidelines to suit your situation. Regardless of the issue at hand, these technical professionals will do whatever they can to get your software functioning correctly. Additionally, you’ll only approve payment when you’re completely satisfied.

I am trying to set up a landscape business and manage my
I am trying to set up a landscape business and manage my workflow from estimates, job tracking/costing, and invoicing. The issue I am running into is the initial set-up. I have an item list with over 7,500 items that I need to be in the software, but I don't necessarily want to track inventory, I just need the items in there so that they autofill when I am doing estimates, and to standardize the names of each product since they will all have different names when purchased from different suppliers. In addition, because the purchase name is ***** ***** my item list name, I need to be able to track those items when used on a job, not off of a receipt. Basically, what I need to know is what software is the best for the intial upload of importing 7,500 items(the QB process to do this is severely lacking and unreliable in several ways), and how to get my chart of accounts set up correctly initially before I upload so that I can accomodate classifying my items, then is there a software that I can track what is used separate from expenses? … read more

How to get answers for software questions online


Some of the software-related issues already tackled by the Experts on JustAnswer include:


  • My Facebook account has been hacked, and I can’t log in with my usual password. How do I get back in?
  • What software do I need to use a high speed scanner to send 1000+ pages to a database of recipients?
  • I have two different four-page newsletters that were created in Microsoft Publisher. How can I merge them together?
  • I'm trying to install Adobe Photoshop 14, and it keeps asking me for my password. I am unable to change it in order to load up the program.

Before asking for assistance from the software Experts on JustAnswer, be sure to take note of the software’s name, its last update, and any recent updates to your operating system.
