    Is Windows making your computing life a nightmare? If it is, then this book is for you. Author David A. Karp, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that shows you how to fix Windows. Karp, begins by showing you how to deal with interface quirks that plague Windows and most of the applications that you run on your PC. Then, the author covers Windows Explorer in all of its forms, including tips on how to do things like force it to remember your view settings, save your default application choices, tame File&#61664 Open and File&#61664 Save As dialog boxes, and get XP¿s Search tool to behave. The author then covers Multimedia and more. Next, he shows you how to get a handle on Internet Explorer¿s role, and what you can do to improve your online experience. The author also shows you how to make everything work without ever compromising your security. Finally, he shows you how to reinstall Windows, update it safely, get it to start up more quickly and shut down without complaining, and finally, make it work with all your hardware. Several techniques are used in this most excellent book to help you better understand and retain the information you need to fix Windows. More importantly, the preceding approach is what makes this book a more effective learning tool than other books on the shelf.
