Windows Repair 2.10.1

Windows Repair Editor's Review

Repair and maintain your Windows PC with this important utility.

If there's one thing that I have learned over the years its that keeping your Windows PC running without issues can be complicated.  These machines can do a lot and its not always easy to fix the problems once they've occurred. Sometimes, its easier to just blow the box and start over.  Unfortunately, that's not always possible. Sometimes the existence of important data, or specific peripheral drivers, other add-ons or reasons prevent you from taking that route. Its at this point that having comprehensive tools like Windows Repair, a fix-it and maintenance utility for Windows – can make the difference.

I've written well over 3000 individual tips for Windows covering Windows XP to Windows 7 over a 15 year period, and between us...Windows can be complicated. Fixing issues or problems with the OS, let along getting past a virus or other malware, can be challenging at times. In many cases, my recommendation is to save yourself some time, get your data off the machine, and then simply blow the machine and start from scratch. However, that isn't always an option.

Reinstalling ANY operating system, whether you want to or not, regardless of experience level can take a long time; and it doesn't always go smoothly. Sometimes, things don't come back the way you think they will.  Tweaking.com's Windows Repair is meant for situations like this, and I'm really glad its there. The application is an all in one repair tool that should help you fix many of the bigger Windows problems, including registry errors and file permission errors

App Pro’s: free, easy to use

App Con’s: App is still "young" and needs to mature, all work done via DOS prompt, currently uses some 3rd party apps to handle some functionality.

Conclusion: Windows Repair is a good app, with a good beginning. It can do a lot of things to help repair Windows, but it isn't a universal cure.  The app is still very young and needs to mature. It needs to be able to determine what the problem is and then either fix it, or offer ways to resolve the issue.

Most of the big problems that afflict Windows, aside from malware attacks, are driver and registry issues.  While Windows Repair can fix some registry issues, the Registry is a complicated animal. Modifying it doesn't always provide the results you think or hope it will. 

Driver issues are another huge problem. While you hope that drivers for peripherals work as intended, the world of Windows drivers can be a huge mess.  Not all of them are created equally, and in many cases, they don't work and play well with other drivers.  While Windows Repair may not be able to resolve these issues, it would be nice if it could ID the potential conflicts and then provide download links to the latest versions of all drivers involved. If that doesn't resolve the issue(s), then informing users that the drivers are known to conflict, or indicating that it will inform others of the potential conflict could be a huge help.  It would also be nice if the app used your PC's currently installed malware software to scan and remove malware, especially if your're using MS Security Essentials on Windows 7 or MS Defender in Windows 8.x.
