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.

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.
