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.
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.
- New repair added "Repair Windows 'New' Submenu". When you right click on the desktop or in a folder and go to new and it is missing, empty or is missing the default items then this repair will put back the registry keys for the new menu and its default items.
- Improvements to the Reset File Permissions. I have now made a tool to allow me to run the file permissions repair as the trusted installer. Before the only permissions it could set was anything with administrators or system as the owner. The only way to set the permissions on files that had the trusted installed as the owner was to take ownership of them. Well now that isn't needed as the repair can now set the permissions on those files as well :-)
- Updated multiple repairs to no longer display everything in the cmd.exe window. When there is a lot of text to display in the cmd.exe window then it would use a lot of cpu to draw and update the cmd.exe window, which would slow down the repair since the cpu was being used to draw the window. By not showing all the text it cuts down on the cpu usage which helps increase the speed of the repairs.
- Fix the monitors bars on the repair window to properly resize the bar picture when a user had their system dpi set above 100%. When it is above 100% everything increases in size in the program. The bars now take this into account.
- Multiple interface changes.
