9781481023030: Why Computers Do That: Simple Answers to Common Questions about Computers

Why Computers Do That is based on Peter Craig’s experience as a computer technician specializing in helping home computer users and small offices. In this book he has gathered 39 of the most commonly asked questions, then answered them in simple, non-technical language. Craig’s readers benefit from the extensive research he’s done on behalf of his customers -- without ever having to dig through any of the technical details themselves.

Many people find they need to use computers even though they never had any computer training or instruction. They will appreciate how easy it is to understand and use the information here.

This book is intended for people who have questions like:

  • Why do computers slow down and freeze up?
  • Should I fix my old computer or buy a new one?
  • How do I know if my computer has a virus... and why do people create them anyway?

And although the book covers a lot of topics, it’s written so today’s busy, non-technical computer users can quickly find what they need:

  • Easy to read and understand
  • Offers practical advice readers can easily follow
  • Saves time – avoids unnecessary details and technical jargon
  • 25-page glossary includes simple definitions of common computer terms and devices
