Repair and maintain your Windows PC with Windows Repair

icon1348083463If 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.

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.

Scan, fix and repair issues on your computer with Reimage

The Windows Registry is a touchy thing. Screw up your Registry, and I don’t care how great your PC is. The performance is going to tank. This is one of the reasons why I like Reimage. It’s a Swiss army knife utility for windows.

With Reimage, you can perform a quick scan of your PC’s Windows operating system. This will help you uncover specific information that will help you understand the problems your system has and what needs to be repaired. While the Registry is one of the items it scans, Reimage does a lot more.

Reimage scans for security threats. Malware including computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware, dishonest adware and other malicious and unwanted software are easily identified. Any files that have been tagged as malicious and harmful to your system will be deactivated and quarantined.

If your PC is having hardware issues, such as low memory, hard disk speed, CPU power and temperature, Reimage can recommend solutions for you. For example, if your PC’s CPU temperature is too high, you’ll be advised to clean your cooling fan. If the scan detects low memory, you’ll be advised to add more, etc.

Reimage is also the only PC repair service that has the ability to reverse the damage done to your operating system by replacing any damaged or missing files on a Windows operating system. It does this with the use of a continuously updated online database of over 25,000,000 updated essential components. Every time you run the Reimage program, it will immediately download the latest version and files you’ll need for a successful repair.

Recover Windows 7 from any type of serious errors using the repair disc

In an earlier post, I described how can you create a system repair disc for the situations where Windows 7 cannot start successfully. Well, it’s time to find out how can you use the system repair disc you’ve created.

Here is what you must do:

– First of all, insert the system repair disc into your CD or DVD drive.
– Restart your computer using the computer’s power button.
– If prompted, press any key to start the computer from the system repair disc. If your computer isn’t configured to start from a CD or DVD, you’ll have to check the information that came with your computer. You might need to change your computer’s BIOS settings in order to boot from the repair disc.
– If you could start the computer using the repair disc,  choose your language settings, and then click Next.
– Select a recovery option, and then click Next.

Create a system repair disc for the situations where Windows 7 cannot start successfully

As suggested in an earlier post, when the installation of a program (driver,etc) causes Windows to behave unpredictably (errors, system freeze, etc), one of the best thing you could do is to use Windows System Restore to undo all the changes made to your system and causes troubles. Most of the time, System Restore solves the problem but what if Windows no longer boot properly in order to use System Restore? This is the case when you’ll need a Windows installation disc or access to the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer. If you don’t have either of those choices, you can create a system repair disc to access system recovery options but of course, you do this when your system is still working properly (or from another working computer) so wait no longer, create a system repair disc. How? It’s simple, really.

Start by typing ‘system repair disc’ into the search box in the Start menu and press Enter.

Soon after that, a dialog box opens where you select the right drive and click Create disc.

A CD will be fine as it only takes up around 150MB of space.
