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:

  • Major update, the program can now properly run in Windows Safe Mode. The program didn't run properly in safe mode before because services that the repairs needed where not allowed to run in safe mode.
  • I have built and included a tool in the program that will allow a user to prepare safe mode for the repairs by setting the services it needs for the repairs to be allowed to run in safe mode.
  • Updated the remove policies set by infections to remove the Google chrome policies set to not allow chrome to update.
  • Updated the tweakingras.exe and tweakingrati.exe to have their manifest files embedded in them to fix a problem where if the manifest files where corrupt or messed up for some reason then the repairs wouldn't run.
  • Updated the "Repair WMI" to remove the bug in Windows causing Event ID
  • 10 (Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99")
  • Fixed a bug where if the settings.ini file was deleted or a user updated the program from from a older version and the settings.ini file didn't have the color information set that the colors wouldn't be set correctly, such as black text over the dark grey background. The program has now been updated to apply the proper default colors when this happens.
  • Updated the "Reset File Permissions" to no longer set permissions on the profile locations when the user is setting permissions on a drive where the profiles are not located.
  • Multiple code improvements and changes.
  • Updated Registry Backup to v1.10.1
  • Changed and updated multiple icons and graphics in the program.
