If you’ve been singled out as the one tech-savvy member of your family, you know how hard it can be to field calls for help from parents and others who see themselves as more clueless than they may really be.
Even if you haven’t, the odds are good that you’ll need to help someone at some point; after all, not everyone is a CNET blog reader! So pour yourself a cup of coffee (or some other refreshing beverage) and try the following tips and tricks to help smooth the process.
Try to keep in mind that they probably don’t use their computer the same way you do, and they certainly don’t use the same language you do. You need to deal with things on their terms as much as possible, and you should do what you can to translate your instructions into language they can understand. This can be half the battle sometimes, as clear explanations can keep problems from recurring.

If there’s a catastrophic error (like a hard-drive failure), you are in some small way off the hook. Explain that they have just a few options: if they’re still on warranty, you can help them take care of dealing with customer service. If not, offer to help if you’ve got the skills and tools to replace the hardware, but if it’s beyond you, just shake your head and help them shop for a replacement.

Other hardware problems can be tricky, but if you’re present, you can check connections, restart printers, routers, modems, and computers, and track down customer service, if need be. If you’re not on-site, you may need to exercise extreme patience as you guide your parents through the basic steps of troubleshooting. The odds are good that something just needs a reboot or a reconnection; barring that, it may be time for a replacement.

More likely, they’re facing more mundane software issues, like malware or bloat. You may just want to shoo them away while you tackle the issue, but if you’re feeling benevolent, encourage them to watch over your shoulder as you take care of basic Windows maintenance using the tools found here. Some of them (like Microsoft Security Essentials) can be set up to handle issues automatically, so you won’t have to worry about them in the future. The others need to be run manually, which can be tough if you only see your folks now and then. If that’s the case, try the next toolset.

Microsoft Security Essentials automatically protects against online threats.

It’s much easier now to remotely view or even control your parents’ computer, so unless their network connection is the problem, you should be able to help them from far away. Try Soluto or TeamViewer to view and issue commands to the remote computer, but remember that the software does need to be installed on both machines, so you may have to walk them through the process over the phone at first.
Once it’s working, though, you can handle maintenance and other tasks on their computer while you’re doing your own.

Of course, no guide like this can be exhaustive, but this should cover most of the issues you face. You can also check out last year’s tech support podcast with Rafe and Seth for more info. If all else fails, you can always contact customer support on your parents’ behalf and help both them and whomever you end up dealing with on the other end of the line.

Meddle is the sixth studio album by English progressive rock group Pink Floyd, released 30 October 1971 on Harvest Records. It was produced between the band’s touring commitments, from January to August 1971. The album was recorded at a series of locations around London, including Abbey Road Studios and Morgan Studios.

With no material to work with and no clear idea of the album’s direction, the band devised a series of novel experiments which eventually inspired the album’s signature track, "Echoes". Although many of the group’s later albums would be unified by a central theme with lyrics written mainly by Roger Waters, Meddle was a group effort with lyrical contributions from each member.

The album was well-received by music critics upon its release. However, despite being commercially successful in the United Kingdom, lacklustre publicity on the part of their United States-based label led to poor sales there.

Returning from a series of tours of Atom Heart Mother across America and England, at the start of 1971 the band started work on new material at Abbey Road. At the time, Abbey Road was equipped only with eight-track multitrack recording facilities, which Pink Floyd found insufficient for the increasing technical demands of their project. They transferred their best efforts, including the opening of "Echoes", to 16-track tape at smaller studios in London (namely AIR, and Morgan in West Hampstead) and resumed work with the advantage of more flexible recording equipment. Engineers John Leckie and Peter Bown recorded the main Abbey Road and AIR sessions, while for minor work at Morgan studios in West Hampstead Rob Black and Roger Quested handled the engineering duties.

Lacking a central theme for the project, the band used several experiments in a divergent attempt to spur the creative process. One exercise involved each member playing on a separate track, with no reference to what the other members were doing. The tempo was entirely random while the band played around an agreed chord structure, and moods such as ‘first two minutes romantic, next two up tempo’. Each recorded section was named, but the process was largely unproductive; after several weeks no complete songs had been created.

John Leckie had worked on albums such as George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass and Ringo Starr’s Sentimental Journey, and was employed as a tape-operator on Meddle, partly for his proclivity for working into the early hours of the morning. Pink Floyd’s sessions would often begin in the afternoon, and end early the next morning, "…during which time nothing would get done. There was no record company contact whatsoever, except when their label manager would show up now and again with a couple of bottles of wine and a couple of joints." The band would apparently spend long periods of time working on simple sounds, or a particular guitar riff. They also spent several days at Air Studios, attempting to create music using a variety of household objects, a project which would be revisited between their next albums, The Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here.

Following these early experiments—called "Nothings"—the band developed "Son of Nothings", which was followed by "Return of the Son of Nothings"—the working title of the new album. One of these early works involved the use of Richard Wright’s piano. Wright had fed a single note through a Leslie speaker, producing a submarine-like ping. The band tried repeatedly to recreate this sound in the studio but were unsuccessful, and so the demo version was used on what would later become "Echoes", mixed almost exclusively at Air Studios. Combined with David Gilmour’s guitar, the band were able to develop the track further, experimenting with accidental sound effects (such as Gilmour’s guitar being plugged into a wah-wah pedal back to front). Unlike Atom Heart Mother the new multi-track capabilities of the studio enabled them to create the track in stages, rather than performing it in a single take. The final 23-minute piece would eventually take up the entire second side of the album.
