Troubleshooting and Alerts

Troubleshooting and Alerts

One of the annoyances in Windows Vista is the frequency of the alerts and pop-up messages that it displays. Windows 7 changes the way it displays alerts; it also gives you more control over those alerts and messages, letting you choose the messages you want to see.

The Action Center consolidates alerts from several Windows features, including the Security Center and Windows Defender. In Windows 7, the Action Center icon appears in the taskbar. Clicking the icon displays messages related to the items that you might need to address, such as the lack of an antivirus program, a problem with a device in the computer, or the need to scan the computer for threats.

Windows 7 also gives you control over the types of messages you see. For example, if you don’t want to see messages about Windows Update, you can turn off those messages by deselecting a check box in the Action Center settings. In addition, you can control how Windows 7 noti?es you when changes are being made to your computer. Instead of Windows notifying you and asking you to allow a change that you initiate in Windows, for example, you can have Windows notify you only when programs try to make changes.

Other changes are geared toward troubleshooting. The Devices and Printers folder, for example, gives you a single place to manage and troubleshoot a wide variety of devices connected to your computer. In addition, the Troubleshooting item in the Control Panel consolidates troubleshooting tools in one place.
