Dealing with Common Windows Annoyances

  • Mike Halsey
Chapter

Abstract

PCs can be annoying, frustrating, irritating things to use when something isn’t working as it should. From files that won’t open, to disks you can’t access, sound that won’t play, irritating activation messages two years after you’d activated Windows, Windows Updates that won’t install, slow and hanging startup and shutdown, to encryption lockouts, faulty touchscreens, nonfunctioning USB devices, not having a picture on your monitor and Blue Screens of Death (BSOD) with perpetual restarts. Things that might in essence be “straightforward” problems can cause enormous headaches and loss of productivity.
