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 repairs.

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 recommended.

Start Repairs

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.

What's New:

  • The program now also checks the SHA1 hash of its files at program startup. Before the program only checked if any files where missing. But I have found some users who either had their antivirus mess up some of the files (or some other program) or they had bad sectors on their hard drive, corrupting some of the files. When this happened not only did it mess with the repairs but if it happened to be one of the registry files it could end up screwing things up in Windows since the file was corrupted and not putting the correct data into the registry.
  • So now the program will both check if any files are missing and if they have been changed in any way. This will slow the startup of the program down a little but only by a few seconds as it scans the files.
  • Fixed a bug in the Restore UAC repair where it was saving to the wrong log file name.
  • Fixed a bug where the Repair Windows Updates commands would be doubled in the repair.
  • Updated "Repair Windows Sidebar/Gadgets"
  • Updated and added more files to "Register System Files"
