1. Windows OS (33.9%)
2. Windows Application (22.7%)
3. Virus/Spyware/Malware/Pop-Up Ads (10.5%)

13. Mac Applications (0.2%)
14. Mac OS (0.1%)

Windows Applications

Windows apps are the biggest problem this year due to buggy Windows 10 updates. While Microsoft fixes the errors, they still cause problems and frustration. Fortunately, Microsoft allows you to easily uninstall any problematic Windows updates on your PC.

Windows OS

For Windows OS issues, utilize system restore and create restore points.

Virus/Spyware/Malware/Pop-Up Ads

Viruses, spyware, malware, and pop-ups are nearly unavoidable when using the Internet, so you must always keep Internet security software paid for and updated.

Email Trouble

Most email problems include forgotten passwords. Write yours down and keep it in a safe, readily available place.

Running Slow

A slow computer is usually either due to a lack of free hard drive space or malware. Limit programs opening upon startup, uninstall files and programs you no longer use, and delete junk files.

Printer Issues

Printer issues are often as simple as loose cords or unplugged machines. Reinstalling the USB will typically solve printer problems.

Data Recovery

Often a hard drive failure requires professional data recovery services. Smart users backup their hard drives to the cloud; vital data can be lost permanently with a severe issue. OneDrive by Microsoft is a good free option.

Internet Connectivity

Is your Internet connectivity problem with your Internet Service Provider (ISP)? If not, reboot your modem and router. Unplug the power cord, wait 30 seconds, plug it back into the modem and router. The Internet light should turn green.

Computer Fails to Boot

Fatal system errors with Windows 10 are usually because of software or drivers crashing when a bad or buggy Windows update is loaded. Your computer will restart automatically and give you the option to roll back to a previously saved restore point.

Hardware Problems

Hardware problems are faults in physical components. These include a broken screen, mouse or keyboard, a damaged power cord, and many more, typically due to normal wear and tear or cheap computer components. It is often worthwhile to buy better quality.

User Caused

Other than forgotten passwords, these often include damage resulting from careless acts like spilling a drink or dropping a phone, tablet or laptop.

Phone Problems

Having the most current operating system on your Android or iOS device and having your apps update automatically will help greatly to prevent security concerns.

Mac Applications & Mac OS X (Macs are not immune to problems)

Mac users face the same problems as PC users, though much less frequently overall. Mac apps can slow down performance, but they are exceptionally easy to uninstall and doing so will usually alleviate this issue. Be wary of third-party applications from the Apple store and poorly reviewed apps, and only download those that are Apple-approved.
