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.
- Updated default registry and file permissions for Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 as of Feb 19th 2019
- Microsoft keeps changing the path for windows defender in windows 10, so when restoring the service from the repairs windows defender would no longer work because it would point to the old path. For now the windefend service for windows 10 has been removed from the repairs to keep from breaking windows defender in Windows 10.
- Small code changes and tweaks
- There is a bug in Windows 10 build 1809 where using the bcdedit command to reboot the system into safe mode doesn't clear the registry keys for the safe boot option after the command has been removed.
- Because of this when you reboot into normal mode many services wont start because Windows thinks it is still in safe mode even though it isn't. This kept almost everything from working correctly.
- The program has been updated to auto remove these keys so Windows doesn't get stuck thinking it is in safe mode.
- I have also added the file "remove_stuck_safemode.reg" under the program folder, files\regfiles folder. You can use this file manually if needed.
