I was kind of hoping for a more community driven site. Though not as sketchy as most, this one still reads as a big advertisement for their Ultimate Troubleshooter software. – Nathan Hartley Aug 29 '11 at 16:01
The problem with community driven sites for this sort of thing is that they tend to not always be populated by people who know what they're talking about. It is a bit of an advertisement, but it's pretty accurate most of the time. – Aaron Aug 29 '11 at 17:09
