How To Deal With Error Messages You Don't Understand

Friday, 11 July 2008

Even though computers have become a vital part of our everyday life, there are very few of us who are technically equipped to resolve problems that might occur while working on them.

There are many types of errors that may occur on your Windows PC, out of which, only a few require the help of an expert. All others can be easily fixed by using a few simple PC maintenance tools. Whatís more, by being a vigilant user, you may be able to prevent many of these errors from occurring in the first place.

Letís have a look at a few simple tasks that you must perform on regular basis in order to prevent computer errors and maintain a high-performance, optimized PC.

Check your Computer for Viruses

Many computer errors, such as the Agrsmmsg error and the kernel stack inpage error, occur when your computer is infected by a computer virus. These viruses usually infiltrate your PC through an unprotected Internet connection, infected email attachments, open network shares, and infected external media that may be connected to your computer.

To prevent, detect, and remove virus infections, you need an efficient antivirus tool to regularly scan your PC. To ensure that you use your antivirus tool effectively, you need to do the following:

  • Regularly update the tool to ensure that you are protected against the latest malware.
  • Schedule regular scans to so that your system is checked regularly for malicious information.
  • Choose an antivirus tool that comprises real-time protection to prevent viruses from infiltrating your PC in the first place.

Check the Windows Registry for Errors

All software, hardware, and user configuration information of your PC is stored in the Windows registry. This is the reason why, there is not a single task that can be performed on your PC, without referring to the registry.

Being one of the most used components on your Windows PC, makes the Windows registry quite susceptible to attract unwanted errors that eventually damage its files and cause errors.

To prevent computer errors due to registry problems, you need to regularly scan and clean your registry. Although you can use the Windows Registry Editor tool (regedit), to perform this task, this method is quite tedious and prone to errors. This is the reason why, it is recommended that you opt for a third-party tool that is easy-to-use and simplifies the task of cleaning and repairing the Windows registry.

Clean your Hard Disk

All information on your computer resides on the hard disk, which makes the hard disk a very essential component. The following are some of the tasks that you can perform to maintain a healthy hard disk and to protect your data:

  • Uninstall programs and utilities that you no longer use. You can do this by using the Add or Remove Program or a reliable third-party program uninstaller.
  • Use the Disk Cleanup tool to get rid of unwanted files and folders cluttered around the hard disk.
  • Use the Disk Defragmenter tool to consolidate broken files and optimize the hard disk.
  • Implement a reliable data backup strategy to keep your data safe against unavoidable disasters.

Update your Software and Device Drivers

Software and device driver manufacturers release regular updates to patch up any security vulnerabilities and other problems in their products. Many errors, such as the error code 37 are generated because a driver required by a device is not updated. To prevent such errors and ensure that your PC is well protected from various security threats, you must regularly update the software and drivers installed on your system.
