Not all the problems you might encounter relate to calamitous events such as those that cause Windows Error Reporting to spring into action . To address a wide variety of other types of problems, big and small, Windows 7 includes a library of troubleshooting wizards . You can see a list of them by opening Action Center and clicking Troubleshooting, as shown in Figure 23-5 .
The troubleshooter system is designed to be extensible so that software developers, corporate help desks, and others can create additional troubleshooters . And, if you select the box at the bottom of the Troubleshooting window, Windows uses updated versions of the in-box troubleshooters when available . Other troubleshooters might be available online; click View All to see a complete list.
A troubleshooter might lead you through several steps and ask you to check various things before culminating in a troubleshooting report similar to the one shown in Figure 23-6 .
You can explore the details of the troubleshooting report upon its completion or at any time later. In the Troubleshooting control panel (shown in Figure 23-5), click View History.
