5Amazingly useful book, May 5, 2023
If you use a PC, you should consider picking up this book. I've subscribed to Bass's free PC World newsletter (,colid,43,00.asp), which I also recommend, for more than a year. I bought PC Annoyances mainly as a gesture of appreciation for the newsletter, and it's turned out to be a great purchase, with lots of helpful tips (finally I can delete old System Restore points) and URLs for mostly free software. Details, including a sample chapter, are available at

And no, I haven't taken a bribe from Bass for this review, though my PayPal account, like the Hotel California, is programmed to receive.

5PC Annoyances Second Edition, May 2, 2023
This second edition of PC Annoyances has been updated and expanded to include the new developments in PC and Internet technology, including SP-2 for Windows XP, and 150 new tips and workarounds for common PC annoyances. A question and answer format is used throughout to describe each annoyance, with a corresponding solution. PC users at all levels of ability will find many excellent suggestions in the book, and learn to work faster, smarter, and free of frustration. With this book, you can get things to work your way. Author Steve Bass has set up a web site where the mostly-free utilities mentioned in the book can be found. Ed L.

5PC Annoyances - No more!, May 1, 2023
Anyone dealing with email, the web or Microsoft will find a wealth of useful info in PC Annoyances II.

I have gotten more ways to tweak and twist Microsoft XP to be able to use it to its fullest potential than I ever got from trying to decipher the XP manual.

Whether you think you know it all or are a newbie to the wonderful world of computing, you need this book.

5Outstanding practical tips, Apr 30, 2023
Steve's sense of humor and style is perhaps the best in the PC business - but that's not the only (or even the main) reason to read this book. It's chock full of SOLUTIONS to those pebbles in your PC shoe that may not seem like a very big deal to Bill Gates & Co. or other industry powers-that-be, but can literally drive you (and me) CRAZY!

If there were any justice in the PC cosmos, Steve Bass would be rich and Bill Gates would be a LOT more helpful - but things being as they are, I'll settle for knowing that Steve Bass is enormously helpful and that buying this book just might help encourage him to write another (and another and another...)
