It’s been a busy time for me here as I’ve recently been doing a series of webcasts and lectures and I thought I’d share some of these with you here. They’re all completely free and residing on Youtube.
I also thought I’d share with you a couple of photos from my most recent seminar, at the University of York, where we had a charity raffle and raised £165 ($265) for people affected by the terrible tsunami in Japan. My thanks go out to Microsoft UK for providing such fantastic prizes which included a jacket, mugs, three books and two full copies of Wndows 7 Ultimate.
Troubleshooting Windows 7
This first webcast, made for O’Reilly and Microsoft Press is aimed at users of Windows 7 of any ability, right from beginners to intermediate users.
You really don’t have to have any technical knowledge to troubleshoot and repair many problems with Windows 7, and in this webcast, which is 55 minutes long including a ten minute Q&A at the end, I talk you through the tools available, the process of repairing Windows 7, and I also talk about how you can avoid problems occuring in the first instance.
In this video I talk about the tools available in Windows 7 to help you prevent, diagnose and recover from problems quickly and simply. These tools are easy for everyone to use regardless of your technical skill and can save many hours of frustration and wasted money on technical support.
You can view this webcast in full here, but I’ve also broken it down into four smaller parts which you can find on these links. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4.
Advanced Windows 7 Troubleshooting
This second webcast is for intermediate to advanced users and people who use Windows 7 in an enterprise environment. It deals with many more in-depth troubleshooting tools and utilities including command scripting, powershell and how to export all manner of logs and information from Windows to aid with diagnosing and repairing problems with the operating system.
Despite Windows 7 being the most stable and reliable operating system ever to be released by Microsoft, Windows 7 contains a great many features and tools to help advanced users troubleshoot and repair problems from the common to the complex. In this webcast, Mike Halsey MVP, the author of “Troubleshooting Windows 7 Inside Out” from Microsoft Press, will talk about these advanced tools, and how you can use them to save time, money and frustration.
This webcast is 48 minutes long and you can view it here. Again I’ve split it into four smaller parts which you can find on these links. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4.
