Using the Microsoft Online Fix It Center

I know computers, but I am not a computer geek like my husband. Although I can fix many things that happen to my computer with a Google search and some time, there are times when the instructions are too complicated or simply over my head. There are other times when I wish I could just click a button and my computer would fix itself. If you’re like me, you may want to check out the new improved, Microsoft Online Fix It Center.
