Chapter 2. The Basic Windows 7 Utilities

WINDOWS 7 ships with more easily accessible help and diagnostic utilities than any previous version of Windows, but the wizard-based utilities that were popular in the 1990s are gone. Windows 7 developers aimed to create a diagnostic system that doesn’t require the user to move through a lot of steps to fix problems. They wanted things to be as simple and automatic as possible. The result of their efforts is a compromise between old diagnostic systems that maintain compatibility with older Windows versions and new features that provide help and advice to users.
