If the user still cannot find what he or she is looking for, a quick search will lead then to a plethora of Windows Help forums where they can read walkthroughs that should provide step by step instructions on how to resolve the problem. The drawback of such pages is that the generally, user is accepted to be one who is familiar of .puter terms.
