You are right in the middle of something important, maybe you are typing a school report or paying bills online, and then you get an error message. What do you do? Don’t freak out and don’t call an expensive repair technician. Many problems can be dealt with by the user or using an online repair service. You don’t have to be a high tech geek to be able to fix Windows XP. Most problems are simple and can be corrected with minimal time and effort.
Microsoft has a guided program that checks for hard disk drive errors. These errors are extremely dangerous because they can cause your computer to crash. The program is free and easy to use. You just download the program and follow the step by step directions.
Windows XP service packs provide on-line updates to your computer. These updates keep your Windows XP current and error free. This is an excellent way to fix Windows XP before more serious problems arise.
If you get an error report it is always best to send it to Microsoft. The people at Microsoft keep track of error reports so that they can find problems and fix them quickly. An error report consists of the date and time of the error, what the error was, what programs you have installed on your computer, and what programs were running when the error occurred. Microsoft technicians analyze the error reports to determine the problem. Then they go about finding a solution. Once a solution is found, your computer will be sent an update to solve the problem. Always allow updates to be uploaded to your computer. Updates are secure and come directly from either Microsoft or your computer’s manufacturer.
If you still have problems there are many websites offering service products that may help you. Many sites offer free scans. While scans are free most will want you to buy a complete package to fix any errors which are found during the scan. Security programs, problem scans, and computer repair programs are usually packaged neatly in one bundle. While they may seem costly, they are usually cheaper than repair shops and home service technicians. An example of an excellent online repair service for Windows XP is Reimage. You can find a Reimage Review here.
With computers being such a necessity for today’s busy lifestyles, it is important to keep them running at top efficiency. This is why I suggest buying a packaged bundle when you need to fix Windows XP.
