How to Fix Windows without Reinstalling

A clean reinstallation of Windows is often the recommended (and only) solution when your computer gets too clogged up to work properly anymore. However, a proper reinstall of the operating system is a time-consuming task that involves lengthy back-ups, long installations, and days to find and install all your favorite applications again.

Reimage is a better alternative to that long, unnecessary process. You can reduce your computer’s downtime and reinstall the operating system, without resorting to an old-fashioned and often dangerous technique that’s best left to professionals.

Routine maintenance is highly recommended to guarantee efficient and reliable PC performance, even when there is nothing clearly wrong with your computer. Failure to perform maintenance on your PC will eventually cost you – whether it’s in the form of money spent on repair or replacement, loss of data and/or time wasted.

These days money unnecessarily spent hurts more than ever, and the important files that we keep stored on our computers are sometimes irreplaceable.

Anti-Virus Programs Only Do Half the Job

Once your computer has been infected with a virus, it’s no longer your computer. After removing it with your trusty anti-virus software, you’re often left with lingering side-effects. The symptoms vary, but the bottom line is the same: Your computer doesn’t work the way it used to.  Your favorite programs crash frequently, your registry entries are a mess and even your “Cute Kittens of the Month” desktop wallpaper is mysteriously missing.

Why did this happen? You’ve already removed the virus. Shouldn’t the havoc it caused go away, along with it? What about the damage caused to your system? Isn’t it simply erased, along with the malware that caused it?

Windows security update causes ‘blue screen of death’ for some

Windows users reported receiving the blue screen of death on their computers after installing Microsoft’s latest security updates released in February.

Most of the people complaining on a Windows forum said they had the problem on Windows XP, but one person also reported problems on Windows 7.

Users posted a fix on the site that they said seemed to work, but that didn’t necessarily quell the anger.

Where at Microsoft do I send my invoice for hours spent fixing this BS?” one person wrote.

Who is Your PC’s Worst Enemy?

In an ideal world, all PCs would have exactly the same hardware configuration, and it wouldn’t matter what you do on your PC, how much hardware or software you load, what software you download from the internet, what you install on the computer, what you remove and uninstall, or how many different programs you launch concurrently. Unfortunately, we don’t live in an ideal world. And you don’t have to use a PC for very long to know that things don’t always work the way they should. In fact, in the real world, if you buy the exact same PC as your friend, with the same operating system, you are likely to have two completely different computers in a very short time.

Early Detection Can Prevent Major PC Damage

Just like in the medical profession, all PC problems that are detected early will be sure to save time, money and major frustration issues.
