Dial-a-Fix – Free Advanced Computer User Tool

I’m quite comfortable in having the world come to me. After all, that’s one reason (although not the primary one), I’m on the Internet.

For example, in my community we have Dial-a-Bottle (beer), Dial-a-Brew (beer), Dial-a-Law (uh oh), Dial-a-Bus – well you get the point. So, when I discovered Dial-a-Fix, an advanced fix-it utility for Windows, I was intrigued and I’m glad I was.

Quick overview:

Dial-a-Fix is a great little application that assists users in solving specific annoying Windows system issues.

    Bill,

    This is an awesome utility that should be in every tech’s toolbox…

    Oh, I like the “Dial-a-Brew”… What’s the number? (LOL)…

    Thank you for sharing this with all of us…

      Thanks for dropping by Rick. I’m amazed at the type of tools we have at our
      disposal these days.

      As for the Dial-a-Brew number – no way dude! They might get so busy that
      they’ll forget all about me!! LOL

  2. I agree with Rick, this is a great tool but you do have to be careful. I’m trying a new product (to me) called Trojan Remover I heard about it on from Steve on the podnutz podcast they use it on computers that won’t allow them to install Malwarebytes even when you rename the file. I was curious if you’d ever run across it? It looks legit but you never can tell.
    Cheers

      Hey Mark,

      Thanks Mark.

      I hadn’t heard about Trojan Remover until now. Downloaded and will give it a
      test drive.

    Interesting tool! Sounds like a good addition to any techie’s tool belt! No Vista, etc., huh?

    • Bill Mullins

      Hey Tim,

      Yeah, It’s a bit annoying there’s no Vista, Win 7 support.

      Actually, I understand that the developer has no plans to offer support for
      either of these OS’s at this point. Too bad really, since it’s such a neat
      little tool.
