Editors' review

Computer Solutions and Practical Advice gives some basic solutions to common computer problems, but it falls short when compared to Window Help functions.

The program's interface is generic and boring, even with wizard-like functioning. Hopefully, your problem is of the garden-variety type because you'll only have 12 possible PC concerns to select from. The program immediately displays instructions on how to resolve the problem, but nothing you probably don't already know. When you select from categories such as the hard drive, disk drive, or Ethernet card, Computer Solutions and Practical Advice gives suggestions to make sure it's properly set up in BIOS and run it again.

Unlike the Windows Help function, the program doesn't even give convenient links to easily open system tools such as the Device Manager or the Control Panel. Those searching high and low for useful solutions to computer problems will find Computer Solutions and Practical Advice insufficient.

    "Totally useless application"

    June 14, 2006   |   By Hmail

    Version: Computer Solutions and Practical Advice 5

    Pros

    When I downloaded the software, I thought it was free. But it wasn't. You have to pay $6 to use it... So no PROS at all.

    Cons

    It's an application like the MS Troubleshooter. When you have a problem, you try the troubleshooter, and it gives you an advice. Most of the time you can't do anything with that advice... This application is different in the way that you can't do anything with any advice.

    Crappy application, bad design, totally useless, waste of your time.
