PC Live Launches Computer Troubleshooting Blog

PC users know that the ‘blue screen of death’ can always be seconds away. To help alleviate a potential headache, services like PCLive exist. Starting at around $60, they’ll fix your computer remotely. And if they can’t, you don’t pay a cent.

Since we’re always searching for free ways to get out of jams, blogs are a good place to turn for PC troubleshooting help. For PC’s Sake is the latest such blog. Started by the aforementioned PCLive,the blog is designed to provide an interactive community that helps educate users on how to solve simple but nagging PC problems, and to share tips and tricks from both customers and the PCLive.com staff.

“PCs are subject to all kinds of issues,” said Robert O’Dell, CEO of SecurityCoverage, Inc., PCLive.com’s parent company. “Some, like viruses, spyware, pop-ups, etc. come from the outside. Others come from the inside – for example an incorrect setting that keeps a software application from running properly. Often when these issues occur, the first thought is ‘someone must have figured out how to solve this before.’ Our new blog is designed to draw upon the collective knowledge of PC users all over the world, creating a central location where users can find simple answers to their questions, and share their knowledge of a particular issue with others.”

Kicking off the blog is Dan Gookin, author of the PCs for Dummies book series. Look for other well-known writers in the future.

Killing viruses, spyware and pop-ups is always satisfying, especially when you can figure out how you can do it on your own.

    As my old man use to say “DIY (Do it Yourself) is always the best way to handle things.” A lot of these computer repair shops make a killing off fixing folks spyware and virus problems. When in reality all they are doing is running an anti spyware/antivirus program that anyone can get for themselves. It’s fascinating.

    Here is the one I use http://www.spyware-fix.net

    When I tried to log on to my laptop, a box saying “there are not sufficient resources to load” my account with the default something-or-other popped up. The message had a timer that was going to close the box, and then when it closed it would not log me on. I could not turn it off normally so I cut the power. When I turned it back on I logged on fine?
    I read here Worcester PC but couldnt make sense?

    What is the best way for computer troubleshoot which slowdown? So I just restarted my computer and it’s getting laggy, not necessarily slow just kind of freezing then jolting ahead. Youtube videos were streaming fine and now the video is stopping and catching up, although the sound streams fine? What should I do to fix this? There is nothing running now that wasn’t running earlier before this occurred. Thanks.
