Problems With Windows Let Microsoft Fix It


If you are having problems with Windows ( 7 , Vista , XP )  and don't want to reinstall ( which should be the preferred solution ) there is a solution from Microsoft 

Microsoft have the Microsoft Fix It Center Online

After installation it will scan your computer to diagnose and repair problems then it will attempt to fix the issues it has found.

This has proved especially effective for me with Windows Update issues on clients computers.

This is well worth a look for some issues but if you are heavily infected with malware/virus then a reinstall of the operating system is your best choice.

Registry Cleaner's - Touch Of Voodoo

4 voodoo dolls

Many computer users believe in using registry cleaners that will somehow miraculously improve their computer by removing redundant registry entries or for the average user offer a promise that it will speed up your computer.

I think it just voodoo , a bit like when you get your car cleaned you feel that it drives quicker.

Here is the warning.

If you play with your registry , back it up before running the registry cleaner because if things go wrong you maybe able to restore your registry.

There is a chance that you can remove a registry key that will make your computer work and or boot , the worst possible scenario is that you will have to format your hard drive and reload your operating system.

Do they speed up your computer , well in my opinion no.

If you are at the stage that you beleive a registry cleaner will help your computer , put the time and effort in to do a full backup , format , reload , update and restore of your operating system.
