Welcome to my personal blog www.wintips.org

My name is Constantinos and I live in the beautiful country of Greece. I am a computer and network technician and I spend most of my time working with computers, both professionally and personally.

My first computer was an Amstrad 464 that I bought in 1985, but I only started working professionally with computers ten years later with DOS, Microsoft Windows 3.11 and Windows 95. It was then, when the internet had just become available and I was using slow speed modems to connect to it, for many years, until DSL lines became available.

From 1995 until today, I have worked for medium and large companies and organizations in Greece, in IT and network support departments, as a computer technician or as a Windows and network administrator.

In 2003 I founded my own computer repair company “Net On Cosmos – PC WorkShop” { PCW.GR }, located at Arapaki 100, Kallithea, Athens Greece.

This website (www.wintips.org) was launched at the end of 2012. Its main purpose is to provide the visitors with solutions and answers about computer hardware and software related problems, mainly about the various versions of MS Windows operating systems. Every information given in this site is shared for free because I believe that knowledge must be shared to all the people who want to learn.

I mainly focus on finding solutions for problems that originate from various viruses/trojans/malware software or hardware problems that can be easily fixed, by most of us, at home.

All of these articles and guides are written in good faith and are based in my personal and professional experience from solving computer and network problems for large companies that I have worked for, or customers at my repair shop company.

Keep in mind that, most of the times, the solutions provided here require advanced usage knowledge and should always be carried out with care, and I want you to realise that, YOU personally assume the responsibility of repairing your own stuff with the risk of damaging it or loosing data or whatever! The risk is yours, not mine!

Once again, I want to make it clear:

a. I am not responsible for damages, errors or malfunctions that may result from the content of this website.

b. I am not responsible for the content or the quality of information or software of other websites that are suggested or linked in this website.
