Fix 50 Windows Problems with One Click – Download Free FixWin

You just have to love Windows as an operating system – it makes it so easy to DO so many things. Often however, Windows does not make it easy to UNDO, or “fix” things. It’s not uncommon that attempting to undo things, does nothing more than create additional problems.

If you are familiar with working with Registry entries, you can fix virtually anything, but…..

So, if you’ve been looking for an easy way to fix issues such as, Win Explorer not starting at boot up, CD drive or DVD drive is missing or not being recognized by Windows, or other programs, or the Device Manager is not functioning correctly (not as uncommon as you might think), then the recently released FixWin freeware application, could be the perfect solution.

It’s important to note however, FixWin does NOT scan for problems. You, have to recognize that you have the problem – the application will then correct the problem, provided of course it is one of the 50 very common problems the application is designed to deal with.

The FixWin interface consists of 5 easy to work with tabs:

Windows Explorer

FixWin 3

Internet & Connectivity

FixWin 5

Windows Media

FixWin 6

System Tools

FixWin 4

Misc. Additional Fixes

FixWin 7

How to use this application (from the developers):

We first suggest that you run the System File Checker Utility. The button provided on the Welcome page, will ‘run sfc /scannow‘ and will check for and replace any corrupted Windows system files. It is expected to take anywhere from 5-10 minutes. If asked to, do reboot.

Next we insist that you create a System Restore Point. The provided button will create one, called Safe Point. We always recommend that you create one before making any changes to your system. Should you wish or need too, you can always go back to this Safe Point.

Having done that, apply at most one fix at a time and restart your computer. Please check if things are to your satisfaction; and if not, you have the option of restoring back immediately.

Since this application does not require installation, it’s a perfect portable application to carry on your “tech tools” flash drive, for the times you get those inevitable calls from family, or friends – “Uh, I don’t know what I did, but….”

System requirements: Windows 7, Vista, (32-bit and 64-bit)

    Pretty awesome app. Is there anything like this for XP?

    • Bill Mullins

      Apologies for the late reply SugarStix.

      I don’t know of an XP app that does what this app does, so I put it out on the wire to my associates hoping that someone would. No luck though.

      Sorry.

  4. Bill,

    Thanks for the review on this… I’ve been eyeballing this app for awhile and was a little skeptical.

      Hey Rick,

      Vanquish that skepticism. LOL This is a pretty cool app. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve been asked to solve a “my CD or DVD drive has disappeared” or “my Task Bar is in the wrong place” or ……

      From now on, my friends can just download this application. In no time at all, they’ll be experts. I hope!

      Thanks for visiting.

  5. Hi Bill,

    Someday earlier I test an app – 7 Quick Fix which able to fix 21 common problem of Windows 7. It’s look like Windows Club made a better version.

  6. Hi Bill,

    I will try to test it in my PC. Can you explain which limitation you found on it? An article in it will be good. 🙂
