Chapter 15. Maintaining Your Windows Vista System

Chapter 15. Maintaining Your Windows Vista System

In This Chapter

Computer problems, like the proverbial death and taxes, seem to be one of those constants in life. Whether it’s a hard disk giving up the ghost, a power failure that trashes your files, or a virus that invades your system, the issue isn’t whether something will go wrong, but rather when it will happen. Instead of waiting to deal with these difficulties after they’ve occurred (what I call pound-of-cure mode), you need to become proactive and perform maintenance on your system in advance (ounce-of-prevention mode). This will not only reduce the chances that something will go wrong, but it will also set up your system to recover more easily from any problems that do occur. This chapter shows you various Windows Vista utilities and techniques that can help you do just that. At the end of the chapter, I give you a step-by-step plan for maintaining your system and checking for the first signs of problems.
