And, by a questionable leap, computers can help you to be more independent. You can do all sorts of things on your PC without having to go to a shop, visit the library, queue in the post office or deal with the bank in person.

Not to mention all the things you simply couldn’t do without them – like having a video phone call with family or friends miles away, or using Google Maps and streetview to look around a place you’ve never even been to.

But what can sometimes get in the way is when things go wrong on your PC or laptop (whether it’s your fault or, more often, not)… and that’s why you should read about these books:
