Tomshardware's "Fix Your Own PC" Article

Nothing exciting for veteran PC users but PC newbies may want to check out the article.

My comments on two sections of the article:

1. On unfinished software - Right on! Some "finished" software also have bugs in them so I usually wait and scan the company's forums for any prevalent bugs current users may be having problems with. If I see lots of complaint, I wait until they find a way to solve the problem(s). See one of my articles about a scenario like this.

2. On updates - What the writer may have meant is avoid rushing into major updates (sofware engine overhaul, etc). Certainly updating your anti-virus software is a must and must be done periodically.
