When Windows XP was first released in August 2001 Microsoft came under fire for producing an operating system that was not only buggy and unstable, but also it was full of security holes that allowed virus makers to exploit certain areas to gain access. Fortunately since then many service packs have been released along with extensive security fixes which thankfully have patched up the holes. As of today, roughly 30% of PC users still use Windows XP, and it's considered to be one of the best and most successful operating systems created by Microsoft. In fact many people today would rather carry out windows XP troubleshooting and try to repair Windows XP online, than upgrade to later versions of Windows like Vista or Windows 7. It's not surprising really that computer users prefer to use tried and tested systems than blindly upgrade.
However, even with tried and tested operating systems, things can go wrong from time to time, and its then when it becomes necessary to carry out some Window XP troubleshooting on your system. One of the most popular ways of carrying out these diagnoses is to carry out a repair of Windows XP online. Obviously you can only do this if you still have a working connection to the Internet, and can access a webpage with no difficulties. For problems involving network connections, you may be limited to running repairs from your XP disk for now.
Assuming all is well with your Internet connection however, by going to a website specifically designed to diagnose and carry out Windows XP troubleshooting, you can cure many problems with Windows XP you probably didn't even know existed. For example, system files that have become damaged or corrupted may not cause your system to crash, but it might not be as efficient as before and may be unstable. If you repair Windows XP online, you can quickly and easily replace damaged or missing system files, and because an online system is kept up-to-date, you will only be adding the latest versions and not older copies that may be incompatible with your system.
One of the biggest reasons for carrying out Windows XP troubleshooting online is due to damage caused by a virus attack, or by malware being downloaded inadvertently. Viruses and malware can damage or delete system files, create bogus registry entries, and even corrupt essential files needed for the smooth running of your computer. Even after you have successfully removed any trace of the infection from your PC, you may find that enough damage has been done to cause your system to crash or be temperamental. If this is the case you are advised to carry out a repair of Windows XP online to investigate and sort out any problems the malicious software may have caused.
Microsoft has it's own Windows XP troubleshooting service online that is able to diagnose your system. This will investigate your system and suggest where there may be problems and issues with your Windows XP system, media player, browser or other Microsoft software such as Word and Excel. In most cases this will automatically diagnose and fix causes of poor system performance, but you should be aware that it cannot replace system files or recover damage caused by viruses. Even if you use the official Windows XP "fixit" website to repair Windows XP online, you may still find yourself left with an operating system that has missing system files that are vital to your computer, and your systems may still include registry entries created by malicious software.
By far the best way to carry our Windows XP troubleshooting online is to use a repair and diagnostic service that is dedicated to Windows repair. By doing this you can be more assured that a more comprehensive diagnosis will take place, and any system files that are missing or corrupt will be replaced automatically. Whereas the official Microsoft repair Windows XP online site concentrates mainly on speeding up your operating system and replacing broken links and desktop icons, a dedicated repair and diagnosis site will do a more thorough job and actually replace system files, repair damage to registry entries and actually get to the root of the problem. Using a repair system such as the patented Reimage Windows stability scanner, you can actually replace critical files with fresh copies, and because you're using a well known and trusted piece of software, there's no chance of downloading an already infected file.
