Every so often, a computer comes my way that is suffering from "Broken Windows"; a perfectly good piece of hardware that is rendered useless by virtue of catastrophic software problems within the Windows operating system. It's a shame, really. I have see perfectly good computers thrown in the trash just because Windows doesn't work any more. Of course, there are Windows recovery tools (e.g. restore points) to revert the system to previous configurations, which may or may not get the system working again.
