OUR NEXT MEETING
All meetings are free and open to the public
The next meeting is Tuesday, September 1st at 7:00 PM in Multi-Use Room 3 at the Fort Collins Senior Center.
You are working away on your computer, something happens, and suddenly nothing works. Windows has "crashed." Considering the frustration that causes, that word "crashed" seems very appropriate.
OK, so what do you do? Well . . . there are several things you can—and should—do. And there are several things you should NOT do.
Plan to attend the September FRPCUG General Forum meeting to learn what those "DOs" and "DON'Ts" are in order to recover from a crashed Windows system.
