Internet, Windows XP

Fix my XP is a site that has lots of Windows tips that are especially useful for beginners. Tips that explain how to remove unused dlls from memory, fine tune your LCD display or how to open large folders faster can be found on the site. Take a look, you might be surprised what you find.

Update: The original Fix My PC site is no longer accessible on the Internet. It seems that the site has been taken offline. For now, only a default template page is showing up indicating that the website has not been set up yet. It is not clear if this will happen at all, and if the new website will provide users with the same set of information that the old site had to offer.

We have collected a few resources on the Internet, all free of course, that you can make use of instead.

Fix Common PC Problems: Microsoft has a site up at the Microsoft at Home website that is providing Windows users with fixes for common PC problems. The guide walks users through a series of troubleshooting steps that they can undertake to fix issues on their PC by themselves.

It also points to Microsoft Help and Support pages, and the Windows Community site where users can get additional help.

You could also take a look at our troubleshooting category here on Ghacks, where we regularly cover PC issues and fixes. It covers mostly Windows PC issues, but you will also find some troubleshooting tips for cross-platform applications and web services in there.

A second official option is Microsoft's Fix It site which offers dozens of programs that Windows users can run on their systems to fix issues that they are experiencing. These programs require little to no user interaction, and will fix a lot of common problems that Windows users run into.
