The problem with outsourcing computer help is that you never get to know what went wrong or how to fix the problem on your own.
As a thumb rule, you must first try to ascertain the reason behind a computer problem. If you are able to verify that the problem is related to software or computer application, you must try and resolve it yourself before calling on an expert. This is the only durable solution to your computer problems and will not cost you any money and will make you more knowledgeable the next time you face a computer error.
