Windows Repair – Fix Common Windows Problems

windowsrepair-thumb Windows Repair is a small, portable and free all-in-one repair tool designed to help you fix common Windows problems. Dial-a-Fix used to be a great tool for this task but it does not work on Windows 7 and has not been updated for years. Windows Repair is a great alternative.

With its 5 step tabs telling you to run Checkdisk, System File Checker and Backup the Registry before you start using the main part, you can see it targets end users a bit more than Technicians but these steps are worth doing anyway. The real power is when you choose “Custom Mode” on the Start Repairs stage.

The following are the repair options you can choose:

  • Reset Registry Permissions
  • Reset File Permissions
  • Register System Files
  • Repair WMI
  • Repair Windows Firewall
  • Repair Internet Explorer
  • Repair MDAC & MS Jet
  • Repair Hosts File
  • Remove Policies Set By Infections
  • Missing Start Menu Icons
  • Repair Icons
  • Repair Winsock & DNS Cache
  • Remove Temp Files
  • Repair Proxy Settings
  • Unhide Non System Files
  • Repair Windows Updates
  • Repair CD/DVD Missing/Not Working
  • Repair Volume Shadow Copy Services
  • Repair Windows Sidebar/Gadgets
  • Set Windows Services to Default Setup
  • Repair MSI (Windows Installer)

    I have used this on several occasions for the worst computers, only. It does well with Vista and 7. I do have a problem with the SVCHOST memory error. I tried several known fixes with no luck (Sorry I do not have exact details as I have stopped using this on XP). I always use the newest version and run chkdsk and sfc as always before, but still had this problem on most xp systems. I even tried to use it again last week. I tried all modes with the same results. I just reimage from my backup and avoid this tool or system restore it back if I actually created a restore point. :) It does work very well with vista and 7.

    Thanks!!….have been waiting for a comprehensive tool similar to dial-a-fix, for Vista/7, for a long while now. There were a few here and there that did some of the mentioned things but this does pretty much all of the manual things that I tend to do when troubleshooting a computer/repairing it post infection. Will add it to my toolkit as it should definitely save me some time!

    This seems like it might encourage even more progress from D7. Definitely the same purpose, but I think I like D7 more still, at this point.

    Is file checker aware of service packs or is it a dumb tool that will just replace SP generated files with original install files?
