I've been joking for years about the "6 R's" of Microsoft 
voodoo problem solving:

1)Retry the thing that didn't work

2)close and Restart the program that isn't working


4)Reconfigure the program in case the configuration mysteriously changed
or got "corrupted" and try again

5)Reinstall the program that doesn't work in case it got "corrupted" files.

6)Reformat the whole hard drive and start over, because obviously something
has gotten too "corrupted" to be fixed reasonably.

( 7) [or 1) if you want to save a lot of time] - Replace with a more reliable 
operating system...)
