Description

(E-Books do not include any DVD or CD with the purchase.)

Windows XP is the most popular operating system on the planet—and the most annoying. From incomprehensible error messages to inexplicable crashes, from wonky wireless setups to just finding a file, Windows can make your computing life a nightmare. But thanks to Fixing Windows XP Annoyances , you can banish the bugs, speed up operations, and just make Windows work right.

Inspired by author David Karp’s Windows XP Annoyances for Geeks , this all-new tome pulls together tips, tricks, insider workarounds, and fixes for PC novices and pros, in a handy, accessible Q&A format that lets you find the solutions in a flash. Fixing Windows XP Annoyances will not only increase your productivity but lower your blood pressure. Karp’s new book covers:

  • Setup and Hardware-Update Windows, reinstall Windows safely, speed up start up, resolve driver-hardware conflicts, and more.
  • Windows Interface-Navigate quickly, fix screen resolution problems, customize the desktop, and switch applications more quickly.
  • Windows Explorer-Force XP’s file & folder management application to remember your view settings, save your default application choices, and get XP’s Search tool to behave.
  • Multimedia-Having a problem playing a video or burning a CD? Want to do more with your digital photo collection? We have the answers.
  • Web and Email-Get a handle on spyware, spam and pop-ups; protect your privacy online; learn how to improve your online experience.
  • Wireless and Home Networking-Connect all your PCs; share Internet connections; share files and drives securely; make your wireless network purr; share network printers; and more.

If you’re having a problem, just look through the Table of Contents for the annoyance that most closely matches your problem, or feel free to start thumbing through the pages. You’ll likely find a fix to a problem you didn’t even know could be solved.
