More Details on Windows 7 Troubleshooters

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

In researching a vexing IE problem on one of my Windows 7 desktops, I stumbled across a treasure trove of troubleshooting tools that are readily available to all Windows 7 users and admins. I had never run across many of these, and am glad to have a new place to turn when trouble pops up and is in need of shooting. Here’s what you can do to see Windows 7 long and impressive list of troubleshooting tools (aka “troubleshooters”).

1. Click Start, Control Panel.

2. If in icon view, click “Troubleshooting;” if in category view type “Troubshooter” into the search box.

3. Either way, click “Troubleshooting.”

4. Click “View All” in the left hand column of the Troubleshooting window to produce a complete list of troubleshooting utilities.

The one that caught my eye was entitled “Internet Explorer Performance,” where you’ll find a tool to check for defective add-ons (a common cause of IE issues on my own and many other machines). There are quite a few others worth exploring there, too: check it out!
