Using Tweaking.com - Windows Repair:
When you first run the program you will be introduced to 4 steps before the
repair options. These steps are highly recommend to do before attempting any
Step 1. Clean Your System Of Infections.
Trying to fix a system that is currently infected is obviously a very bad idea
and can make things worse. An infection can hijack a machine and keep part of
the repairs from running correctly. Since only part of a repair will work the
other part that failed could end up causing problems. Rule of thumb before
working on a system is to make sure it is clean. Even if you think your system
is clean doing a scan before hand is a good idea.
Step 2. Check File System
Doing a check disk on the hard drive is a good idea. This will have Windows
check the file system on the drive fixing any problem it finds. Corrupt files
can break a lot of things, including the repairs. So making sure the file system
is good is a must.
Step 3. System File Check (SFC)
The built in Windows system file checker is a tool that checks that the Windows
files are intact, the correct versions and not corrupted. This is a good idea to
do before doing repairs as if a file is corrupt and we try a repair that needs
that file then the repair will fail.
Step 4. System Restore
Doing a system restore point is a great idea to do before doing any repairs. If
any unforeseen problems happen after any repair than a system restore can put
the system back to the way it was before the repairs. This is highly
In this final step you can choose between 3 modes.
Basic Mode: This will run only the most basic, safe repair options. Extra
advanced repairs are disabled.
Advanced Mode: Runs more advanced repairs while leaving a few disabled.
Custom Mode: Every repair is available. The program will remember your repair
choices the next time you choose custom mode.
Changelog for this release:
- On some systems, depending what programs are installed would not leave enough system resources for the reg and file permissions repair. On these systems after those repairs the rest of the repairs wouldn\'t work because the system was out of resources. There are two simple reg tweaks that increase the system resources Windows will use. Both repairs will now apply those two reg keys. Not only will this fix the resources being used up but should also fix any other program that runs out of resources. A reg file for these two tweaks are in the files folder with the program.
- Added more files to the repair system restore.
- Nearly all repairs run under the system account. As I work on the repairs I noticed something odd. Some parts of the repairs work when run under the current user account and fail under the system account, and other parts fail under the user account and work with the system account. Such as adding reg files or registering files. Here is an example registering the file blb_ps.dll under the user account works while trying to register it under the system account fails, and this only happens with a few files while the rest work fine under both. To handle this I now have some of the repairs run twice, once under the user account then again under the system account. This should handle any odd permissions between the two accounts and insure that the repairs are successful. This isn\'t needed on all repairs.
