Question about Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
Turning off your computer while it is loading something is risky and it can damage your files (become corrupted and unreadable) on the hard disk. In cases where you absolutely need to force-restart or in power surges, it is advisable to use Windows chkdsk feature to check the hard drive for errors. In some versions of Windows, chkdsk is run automatically if you didn't shut down the computer properly but you can manually use it by right clicking your hard drive -> Properties -> Tools -> Error Checking -> Check Now -> Tick Automatically fix file system errors.
In Safe Mode, the computer loads only the necessary programs and services the operating system needs to run; no start up programs and unnecessary drivers installed by the user. This way, you can uninstall programs you couldn't remove in normal startup (because they're being loaded). To stop your computer from loading in the Safe Mode, keep pressing F8 on the boot-up process until you see a screen with boot-up options. Choose Start Windows normally.
