Self Help for the Brave or Curious

For those of you that are interested in learning more about your computer, I will slowly try to build this page as a library of tips, techniques, and tools that I have found to be useful.

The first entry and what prompted the start of this page is the Microsoft Emergency Recovery Utility; which, while not as elegant as some others, is virtually guaranteed to save your bacon at least once. For technicians and troubleshooters, it is essential, because, it allows you to quickly restore the registry and system files with a Dos program that is placed in each folder you create.

There is a trick I employ in that my instructions will have you create a new folder with today's date. This allows for multiple backups that are easily found should a restore be necessary.

This website is a work in progress, for which I hope to have changes almost every day.

Some days I get less accomplished on content while I fight with the idiocies of Microsoft or other vendors. This is known as "Jousting with Bill".

Some days I am out working for clients.

Please bear with me and check back soon.

If you have any questions or comments, please E-mail me.
