Computer Problems Troubleshooting

Reader Question:
“Hi Wally, I am having problems with my computer and wondering how to fix it?“ - Tara G., Canada

Before addressing any computer issue, I always recommend scanning and repairing any underlying problems affecting your PC health and performance:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (WinThruster for Win 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP and 2000 – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.

Setting up weekly (or daily) automatic scans will help prevent system problems and keep your PC running fast and trouble-free.

Overview of Computer Problems

Computer problems can be frustrating and even a little scary for computer users. Whether they work on a computer or they play on one, the chance of losing all of your files, including pictures, documents, and videos, can be a little fear-inducing. There are several different reasons for having computer problems and they are dictated by the type of problem that you are having.

Some of the most common issues include a lack of memory space, viruses, too many programs running at the same time, spyware or malware, or hard drive issues. The hard drive normally works very well, but it is especially vulnerable to heat and to voltage issues. Either of these can cause the drive to crash and to quit working entirely.

These computer problems can occur gradually, come up intermittently, or occur with no reason, which often makes it difficult to ascertain what the problem is. In addition, most people continue using their computer even when it is having issues and this can often make the computer problems worsen, especially when the problems are occurring due to overheating and surge issues.

What Problems are Associated with Computer Problems?

Computer problems can indicate a larger issue that your computer is having, whether it is computer hardware or software issues. When your computer shuts down without warning, it can indicate that your computer is overheating or it can indicate a problem with files or the computer itself.

If your computer freezes when you are trying to download files or do a lot of Internet searching, it could have a virus or it could be one of a dozen other computer problems. Computer problems can indicate computer viruses, file corruption, or it can indicate something physically wrong with your computer.

Computer problems describe a wide range of different issues from simply slower response time to getting errors when you are trying to work or surf the Internet. Taking care of them as soon as possible can ensure that you can keep your computer working in the way that it was designed.

Any of these are things that you want to be sure that you are taken care of to make sure that you are able to be as efficient as possible.

Is Your PC Healthy?

I always recommend to my readers to regularly use a trusted registry cleaner and optimizer such as WinThruster or CCleaner. Many problems that you encounter can be attributed to a corrupt and bloated registry.

Happy Computing! :)
