This book reminds me of the cover of the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, which had the words 'Don't Panic' written on the front. For anybody like me, who finds a computer necessary but does indeed panic when the wretched thing doesn't work properly, this book is like a cross between the Little Book of Calm and your best mate who works in I.T and knows what to do. It gives sensible, practical, knowledgeable advice on computer problems and breakdowns, talking you step by step through how to fix everything that can be fixed at home by yourself. Totally invaluable. Topics covered are:

Chapter One: Hardware difficulties; start up-problems, sound and memory problems, installing Windows 7.

Chapter Two: Full chapter on Windows 7, common problems associated with it, and how to troubleshoot them.

Chapter Three: Files and documents; accidentally losing documents, moving and saving files, common printer errors.

Chapter Four: Network problems; securing your network, problems connecting to the internet, faster web-surfing, changing your I.S.P.

Chapter Five: Internet and mail; problems with web browsers, common error messages on websites, using e-mail attachments.

Chapter Six: Security; virus checking, and what to do if you find a virus in your computer; removing spyware; using a firewall; which websites are safe or unsafe?

Chapter seven: USB devices; installing and using printers, cameras, camcorders, etc., and troubleshooting common problems.

Chapter eight: Photos, music and video; troubleshooting common problems plus video editing tips.

Chapter nine: P.C. Health; files back up, system repair, updating drivers, what to do if your computer is running slowly.

Do you, like me, sometimes get frustrated at your own lack of knowledge when things go wrong with your PC? I got this book in the hope that it would guide me through the simpler things we can all do to our PC if we only knew how. It certainly succeeds.
Where some books of this kind either assume you already have a degree in IT, or that you are a idiot with the mind of a 2 year old, this book tackles everyday problems with clear instructions, nicely laid out, without talking down to the reader. Although my current operating system is VISTA, I am thinking of updating to Windows 7, which this book is based on. However, much of what it details works in much the same way with Vista. so I was able to put much into practice. Only a week after getting this book, my PC crashed and I had to reinstall windows. Where I might have struggled with how to do this, the instructions in here helped me through it with ease. There is also the basic PC healthchecks detailed, which I now follow on a regular basis to help my PC run more smoothly. There is chapters on all aspects of Computing, from security and network problems, to connecting devices and dealing with photos, music and video. Everything is explained in an easy-to-follow step by step guide.
I have read a few of these 'manuals' in the past, but this is the only one I would refer to time and again. Much recommended....

This is is a step by step guide from the Which consumer organisation - with clear screen shots about what buttons to press. Warning - it is clearly focused on those with Windows 7 operating systems - so not suitable if you are using an older system. It does not make you an expert, but it should stop you looking too stupid in front of your family. It says 'don't panic' when faced with those scary moments when your computer won't start, you've lost a file, or your computer is getting slower and slower and you may worry you've got a virus. It is not afraid to tell you the obvious such as how to attach a photo to an e-mail or how to defrag your disc. It is also about making your computer healthier - taking you through what you can do to make web surfing faster, or to back up files and how to make surfing safe for kids. It didn't tell me how to access my e-mails remotely or how to alter the way photos appear on my wide screen computer. But it did say on the front that it included free access to the Which computing helpdesk. And it did tell you how to download free extra software programmes from Microsoft.

Misleading book title. It won`t help you fix your crashed computer at all. For those who need to learn there way around the basics of windows like how to paste and cut, how to do e mails, how to upload pictures, ect ect then this is an ideal book. If however you are more into delving into the guts of windows system or have constant blue screen crashes or computer freezing problems, this book will not tell you anything of worth to help you along the way. Essentially a very well written beginners book but nothing more than that.

Once again Which? have made something that is hard to be easy; using laymans terms with simple step by step instructions.All the Jargon and technical terms can now be understtod by those who didnt grow up with computers or simply for people that don't understand.
The book is based on Windows 7 and includes free access to Which? computer helpdesk.
I found that before reading this book I couldn't connect my camcorder to the computer, but after realising the camcorder should be plugged into the mains and using the trouble shooting guide realised what the problem was.
Jargon Buster is a little highlighted box with the term and what it means that is easy to find on relevent pages. Instructions are illustrated so that you can sort out a problem at a galance.
On email and internet the book explains how to stop junk mail.
Other useful tips explained are how to download music and video, Security,connection issues,and keeping your computer healthy.
