Windows 7 seems great at first, but what if something should go wrong. Hard drives do crash! It's not pleasant, but you should think about what you'd do in a data disaster. You need some sort of protection. And Windows 7 makes it easy to create what it calls a System Repair Disc.

Here's how:

Click the Windows button aka "Start."

Type "System repair" in the search box.

Then choose Create a System Repair Disc.

Put in a blank CD or DVD and choose the correct drive from the drop-down.

Press Create Disc.

And let Win 7 do the rest.

Now you're protected.
