Automatically diagnose and repair problems when the visual Aero Glass effects, themes, and transparencies are not working on your computer.

Printing problems and printing errors
Automatically diagnose and repair when you cannot print, or for problems installing a printer, connecting to a network printer and related errors.

Your CD or DVD drive cannot read or write media

Hardware devices not detected or not working
Automatically diagnose and repair problems when the device manager does not detect your hardware, audio, USB and other devices, or when your devices are disabled or not working.

Problems with sound and audio or no sound

Do note that this Automated Troubleshooting Services is valid for Windows Vista & XP only. The reason Windows 7 has been excluded is probably because it already has native troubleshooting support. But hey, you can always use them in Windows 7 too!

Thanks manekari, for the heads up.
