Wikileaks, though technically not a wiki, provides an easy means to disseminate information that some find it desirable to share against the wishes of those who find it desirable to keep secret. Aside from the morality of the leaking itself, such a service provides a look into the activities of...

I had no internet connection.

I selected "Troubleshoot __________"

It troubleshooted, it found a solution and I was connected to the internet again.

The first time in all history it's ever solved a problem for me. It is a beautiful day. I don't even know why I chose to click it today, I guess I was just lazy and feelin' lucky.

Has windows troubleshooter ever fixed your problem?

Yeah no more having to tell people to pull up a command prompt and entering "Ipconfig/release" and then a "Ipconfig/renew"

Thatd normally be my first step, but 98% of the time it doesn't work. I'm a Rogers customer, the internet going down once a day is common if you know anything about rogers. And it's usually just an issue on their end. Lunch break, or something.

edit: believe it or not i went to college for computer networking

I used the troubleshooter for net connection issues for a long time now and rarely does it not work.

Good to hear. So did I. Now if I can stay out of a call center I can keep my sanity.

That troubleshooter is the worst. But I'm glad that someone out there has had a positive experience.

It fixed a mic problem I had once, which was just as shocking. At that time, I had 3 places I could configure the mic input volume, and I had found 2 of them. Troubleshooter found the 3rd....
