Note: I had a subscriber for some of these  free E-Courses tell me he received a virus in one of them. No so! My email service provider scans every email prior to sending for viruses and malware. He also said that he has seen a couple of these topics on a torrent for download. Wrong again, these are individually tailored email courses and are not available anywhere except here.

Written in everyday English, I endeavor to remove or translate the techie or geek jargon to help you understand the topic making it a more enjoyable experience.

An old saying: "Be prepared for the worst, hope for the best"

Now that is ok if you are an IT Pro or a super geek but normal everyday computer owners who DIY have a hard time wading through the techie / geek we see more of everyday.

So when your computer BSOD's (see geek - Blue Screen Of Death) or has a Stop error... What do you do?

  • Call a tech and wait till they come to fix your computer?
  • Disconnect all the cables load it in your car and take it a repair shop, then wait for days sometimes weeks to get you computer back?
  • Or do you search for a solution only to find that the solution is either beyond your knowledge or you don't have the tool you need to apply the solution.

One of you best IT Tool Box items is called an Emergency Repair Disk (ERD).

You can make the Microsoft limited tools Emergency Repair Disc (ERD) with the Backup program on your computer if you have a CD / DVD burner (that is correct, CD or DVD only not a flash drive).

But what if you want more tools that the four or five MS thinks you need and on a USB Flash Drive? The you need a customized Emergency Repair Disk.

But wait there's more!
