A software is a collection of instructions that enable a user to interact with a computer, its hardware, or perform tasks. Without software, most computers would basically be useless. They are what help us achieve the functionalities we want from computers. For example, without your Internet browser software, you would be unable to surf the Internet or read web pages and without an operating system, the browser would not run on your computer.
Acquisition of software can be done in several ways. Software can be purchased at a retail computer store or done online. Software can also be downloaded to a computer over the Internet. Some software are free to acquire while some have to be paid for.
Software can be thought of as the variable part of a computer and hardware the invariable part. It is often divided into application software (these are programs that do work users are directly interested in) and system software (they include operating systems and any program that supports application software).
Software, after installation and period of use might start generating errors. It may need to be updated to fix any found errors. Updating a program can be done using software patches. Once updates are installed any problems that may have been experienced in the program will no longer occur.
