Yesterday, my Windows 7 laptop wouldn’t startup. I was using it away from home and was not connected to the internet. Eventually, a “Windows not shut down properly” error message appeared on the screen. It gave me the option of running in safe mode, so I did that. The text on the screen was too large, but I was able to use the computer. When I got home, I connected it to the internet and started it. After a long delay, it finally started up normally and has been working normally ever since. So here is the question: is Microsoft monitoring the functioning of my Windows 7 laptop via the internet and automatically fixing problems?
