Subject: [WIN-DUM] FAQ for Web Sites Part One
Date: Wed, 10 Jan 2001 20:47:47 -0800
This is just a start of a list for help on the web with your computer problems:
Microsoft has loads of sites to help you. They run from the very easy to
those who make even the professionals run for cover. I will list some of
the easiest to mid level at this time. Many MS sites will force you to
register before you can use the site. It is safe, to do so, but do not be
too long in your answers to their questions.
I need to inform you up front, that to access Microsoft sites, you should
use IE4.x or above. They tend to update their sites frequently, and so
many disappear before your eyes, so to speak. They push IE, so will not
worry about Netscape as a browser to their sites.
This is one of the main starting points.
The use of the Navigate and Index tabs on the left will get you down deep
fairly soon, and help you find information. This is a mid-level site. It
will frequently bomb Netscape.
Within this site is a good place to start to troubleshoot Windows 98
Do not be discouraged if it seems too much to start. It is.
A new area, this is the troubleshooters site. It takes a little work to
understand but powerful when you get the hang of it. Remember that there
are several versions of Windows.
This page is a good place to start the troubleshooting of start-up and
shutdown problems for instance. It is a page under the site above.
This page is FAQs and Highlights for Windows 98
Look to the left, and you will discover sites for other window versions.
