Microsoft Troubleshooting

Reader Question:
“Hi Wally, I am having problems with Microsoft and wondering how to fix it?”    - Marcus F., United Kingdom

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.

Wally’s Answer:

Overview of Microsoft

Microsoft is an important player in the computing industry. This company has played a leading role in developing “mission-critical” software that has greatly benefited computer users. Microsoft headquarters is located in Redmond, Washington, a great distinction from most software companies situated in Silicon Valley. Over the last 40 years, Microsoft has changed the way that people interact with computers and technology.

For a long time, Microsoft has been at the forefront of developing great products that have won numerous awards in the computing industry. As a result, almost all computer users depend on some form of software that was developed by Microsoft, whether it be client or server-side.

Microsoft’s productivity suite, Microsoft Office, is the most popular office suite that is used by millions of users. More importantly, Microsoft developed the majority of operating systems that are still used by people and companies across the world. Microsoft developed the popular Windows Operating System, which is probably one of the most well known brands in history.

Microsoft has divisions that are deal with software development, licensing, and technical support. Microsoft is a market leader in operating systems, which include Microsoft Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.

What Problems are Associated with Microsoft?

Because Microsoft has such broad reach across the software industry, there are bound to be problems that users experience. Like any software, there are numerous issues that users can encounter when they are working with Microsoft developed applications.

It is however important to note that these errors usually vary depending on the software in question. Users are usually advised to conscious and note circumstances under which the errors occurred in order to be in a position to solve system malfunctions.

Microsoft has developed its products with user-friendliness in mind. Errors are presented in such a way that a predefined code is usually displayed on the computer screen, which can be referenced by the user through some simple Internet searches. It is always important for a user to record an error message, including the actual error code itself, as this information is very important when it comes to debugging.

To make the process of debugging easier, Microsoft has published all error codes that users are likely to experience when using their products. These error codes usually explain in detail the type of error and how it can be solved. A list of these error codes can be found on the Internet.

Microsoft also has a dedicated customer support team that helps users to solve various PC based problems. Users can access technical support via email, forums, chat, and telephone for any product queries and additional information on Microsoft products.

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! :)
