This section is predominantly Windows XP, Windows Seven, and Windows 10 there are a few topics on other Operating Systems also. Having worked in the IT industry for twenty-five plus years I have worked with all the major Operating Systems installed on the PC and Server versions running the Intel, AMD, and Motorola processors. Along with a few SPARC Stations running the RISC processor.

This section contains different aspects of the OS in that most computer owners will not venture into; editing the registry or modify a Group Policy (GP) to stop a service or function, however in the IT world and the Pro Repair Tech these are a normal everyday tasks, so some insight on some of the things I have learned over my career and some of the pit falls if you don't read the instructions or do something really stupid (ya, been there, done that...).
