First Thursday Webcast. Windows 8 is by far the most stable and reliable version of the OS that Microsoft have ever produced, but as a piece of software it contains millions of lines of code and it's a huge and extremely complex beast. This can make diagnosing any difficult problem an extremely daunting experience. In this Mike Halsey, the author of "Troubleshoot and Optimize Windows 8 Inside Out" will show how you don't even need third-party tools to complete complex diagnostics, with a tour of a plethora of helpful diagnostic utilities that are already a part of Windows 8.
