Software bugs can be found in all types of software form website building programs to video editing and gaming programs. Most common are the games bugs. As with any software bug that you encounter you should report it to the company that created that software. The only people that can really fix a bug are the programmers that can crack the code open and fix whatever software bugs that they can find. But in order to do so they will need to know exactly what to look for in the code else the fixing process will take to long. And that is exactly why big and small companies but mostly big ones have dedicated departments to beta testing. Testers stress out the program to its limit trying to find out what makes it break and where do the software bugs occur.

Fortunately not all software bugs are so unbearable as to shut down the application completely. Some software bugs might just be resolved by a simple application restart. Others might require a software update to fix the problem, this being the solution to the software bug reports you’ve issued to the producing company.
