    • Margery, after purchase you will receive an email with download instructions to get the product installed. If you cannot locate the email, you can go to pcmatic.com and click on “Free Download”. After downloading, double click the executable file and follow the install process. After installation is complete, click login in the bottom left corner and login with the email and password you set up during purchase. I’ve included a link to a YouTube video of these instructions as well: https://youtu.be/qbvBoeF-8pg. If you need further assistance please reach out to our support team at pcmatic.com/help.
