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:

  • Updated default registry and file permissions for Windows 10 (Fall Creators Update) as of Oct 19th 2017
  • Added more services to be allowed to run in safe mode in order for the Windows 10 fall creators update apps to be able to be reinstalled during the repairs.
  • Blocked two repairs from running on the Windows 10 fall creators update till I have a chance to get them updated, otherwise they cause a infinite black screen. Restore Important Windows Services and Set Windows Services To Default Startup.
  • If you select these repairs, the program will auto skip them if running the 16299 build so dont worry is you select them. Seems Microsoft changed some of the services registry keys and default startups and so need time to go through them and get them updated while still supporting the ones before the fall creators update.
