Windows 10 Still Causing Problems

Windows 10 Still Has Many Issues

By ctwatchdog.com on July 11, 2016

You would think that after releasing Windows 10 a year ago and with all the money that Microsoft has available its new operating system would work like a well oiled machine.

Not happening.

RESCUECOM, the leading computer repair company in the U.S., the U.K., and Canada, says its repair statistics show that difficulty with Windows has not eased as much as expected, though it has slightly.

We create the Computer Repair Report by gathering information from every call we receive for computer repair at and constructing a ranked list of every technology issue that troubles consumers and businesses.

All problems with Windows, whether related to its apps or its OS, continue to make up the majority of computer repair calls, while viruses, spyware, and malware – the foremost Internet security threats – are always major concerns and rank second. Trouble with printers ranks third while issues with sluggish or choppy computer performance rounds out the top four.

The following are the rankings for RESCUECOM’s first semi-annual report:

RankProblemPercentage%
1Windows App and Windows OS Problems57.0%
2Viruses / Spyware / Malware / Pop-Ups11.3%
3Printer Trouble7.5%
4Poor Computer Performance / Slow PC7.0%
5Internet / Network / Wi-Fi Connection4.7%
6Email Issues4.4%
7Failure to Boot / Blue or Blank Screen3.0%
8Hardware Issues / PC or tablet2.1%
9Data Recovery / Movement1.8%
10MAC App and OS Trouble0.7%
11User Error0.3%
12Phone Difficulty0.2%
13T.V. Problems0.1%

The best way to keep your computer and mobile devices safe from any potential danger is to keep your OS and apps updated at all times, take advantage of cloud storage, and install the best Internet security programs, such as the RESCUECOM Internet Security Suite. Be aware that free antivirus software only makes you feel safe while actually leaving you vulnerable; the quality of paid software is much higher and provides real safety from dangers lurking online.

Hardware problems with printers, computers, phones, or TVs, may not be easy for those who do not have professional training or experience to fix. User error is still an issue, albeit a small one, easily prevented by keeping devices away from liquids, avoiding dropping them, and having a means of preventing your password from being lost or getting into the wrong hands. When these problems do strike, you may require an expert such as a RESCUECOM Certified Level-3 technician to provide data recovery and system recovery solutions.

Even those who are most prepared cannot foresee every possible difficulty that may arise, but you do not need to be technologically proficient to prevent many difficulties that commonly affect users. Keeping all files and programs up to date, always having antivirus software not only available but running, avoiding simple mistakes that can lead to damaged tech devices, and securing passwords are all simple steps you can take to keep your technology in top shape.

...A scammer was trying to convince me to get gift cards to pay him back for a typo in a transaction amount. Sound familiar? Result was a completely locked up computer. Contacted Rescuecom and they started work on the problem immediately. Ultimately we had to reset my computer. They were completely professional from start to finish. Did I mention they would not consider the request completed until my computer was up and running again. They are patient, kind, and thorough. I cannot recommend them highly enough. 10 stars!! less
