Technology has a dark side. One of which is hardware failures.
The other is shoddy operating systems.
In less than two weeks I've had two systems go down.
The culprit each time turned out to be a corrupt file that prevented Windows from loading.
This meant the system was DOA in each case.
It didn't matter that the systems were running behind firewalls, that complete system scans were done on an ongoing basis.
Updates and antivirus protection didn't help either.
Laptop and desktop both fell prey. Both on a different version of Windows.
The point of all of this is to keep in mind that things can and will go wrong.
The best laid plans...
