Here is a great Tech Tip from the Globe and Mail, follow these simple steps to recieve a performance report from Windows Vista.
Just as a flu shot can help avoid misery later in the season, a little preventive maintenance on the computer can help stop lurking system problems like low disk space or damaged drivers from becoming real headaches. Windows Vista can generate its own diagnostic System Health Report that points out potential problems.
1.To receive the report, type “Performance” (without the quotation marks) in the search bar on the Vista Start menu and click on Performance and Information Tools.
2.Click on the Advanced Tools item and then on Generate a System Health Report.
After about a minute of data gathering, Windows Vista will provide the full report on screen.
