Error Fixing Programs

[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

I am skeptical of some these so-called computer error fixers. I have a program that sometimes tells me that one or more of my drivers are corrupt or outdated, but when I check them with the system they are all healthy and working just fine.

Should I get rid of the system? It does not hamper the operation of the computer in any way.


Dear Teddy,

I am also skeptical of most of the programs out there that say they will clean out all the errors on your computer.

Usually, they tell you that you have errors that aren’t really there, and the things that they do fix can easily be done with tools already available in Windows.

If you have one of these so called programs installed, I would remove it. While it does not appear to hamper the operation of your computer in any way, it probably does slow it down a little bit.

Just open your Control Panel, click on “Uninstall A Program” then select the program and click the “Uninstall” link in the menu bar at the top.
