When something goes wrong with your computer,…a software program or Windows itself,…the question you must ask is what has changed?…Have you added a peripheral?…Was a software update recently installed?…Did you change a setting?…When you consider these changes it truly helps you…focus on the cause of the trouble.…As an example, my PC's backup program stopped working.…It wouldn't function and I couldn't get it to start.…Then I recalled that there was…a power outage the night before.…That interruption was probably enough…
