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:

  • Quick bug fix from v3.9.8, if the computer wasn't on the internet then the program would never fully open. This was due to the change I made to the code to grab the update info, when calling the connection and waiting for the "still executing" to finish, it never would (since the system wasn't online), even though it was suppose to time out in cases like that.
  • I instead built in my own time out and so now the program will run when not online.
  • Updated default permissions for Windows 10 from windows build anniversary version 1607 update build 14393.
  • Fixed bug where repair rephrase points wouldn't work when starting it from the pre-scan window.
  • Multiple small bug fixes.
  • Fixed bug where you couldn't run the program from a network drive. Even though you shouldn't run the repairs from a network drive due to windows api security, you could still run the program from a network to do other things besides the repairs, this bug has been fixed and the program can run from a network drive again.
  • Fixed bug with the run chkdsk at next boot.
  • Other small code changes and improvements.
