4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 5 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I obtained a lot of useful information from this book. Having had several unexplained crashes with Win XP, Windows 7 and even Win 2K I was able to solve all of the problems some of which in the past even "System Restore" was unable to cure. I found that much of the advice even worked with Windows 2000 which I still use as a Server. I particularly liked the "System File Checker" which works on all of the aforementioned operating systems and which a colleague of mine who professes to fix computers had never even heard of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forewarned is Forearmed! 7 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My PC had a problem recently which needed expert attention. I had to take it to my local PC repair because I hadn't a clue how to solve the problem myself - even by googling the symptoms. The problem served as a warning that I really needed to maintain my PC properly and at least attempt to troubleshoot minor problems. This book seems to have information on all eventualities - only time will tell how useful it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars great reference. and funny too! 22 Mar 2013
I bought it to stick on the shelf "just in case" but its quite a funny read and I've found myself reading chunks of it and finding out things I didn't know! That's not to say I've read the whole book, but very happy with it.
