- The program now auto skips repairs that are meant for a different version of Windows
- Added a checkbox to give the user an option to not have the program check for updates at startup. While I didn't have this before as it is extremely important to always run the latest version because of bug fixes and changes, it also causes the program to

wow can't believe the bad rap this program gets, This is really not a program you start screwing with on a clean machine,,,, sure it could !@#$^ up
this program is designed to help a already screwed up machine. Like last resort before a reinstall. As I stated before this could be your friend or foe. In most cases I have used this software on the computers are to corrupt to save this is a last ditch effort. But it does what it says ....and if you think a windows restore points going to help you good luck, use Acronis and clone your hard disk before playing a game of Operation

Not with a Bargepole..... Not even tested it.
##To avoid "Callup" for O/s disks. You will need to point this proggy to the i386 & Service Pack/cache folders on your C:drive Either thru proggy configs or via regedit..... ##Prob: with (18) Repair VSC service....Fix = (Run chkdsk).
When you've fixed your disk, (Start > Run > sfc /scannow) To get your Sys files back to Defaults. Then chuck this proggy out the Window. Good Luck.
Rates this App, BUT, note the remarks made... ^_^
I'm sure Members/Peeps will take on board your remarks.
Well said, about logging M8... ^_^
I'm gonna get you an Audience with the Queen..!!
(Well summed up) "SIR" or "MADAM"... ^_^
Summary: "IF" you gotta give Apps like these "A GO"..
1) Make a Disk Image if you have the software. (Don't rely on "Sys Restore" alone).
2) Make a registry Backup, & Save a copy Externally.
3) Make sure you have your Original O/s disks handy in case you Screw your system up & need to use "Safe Mode" or (R).
4) LOGGING... Before you run Duffer Apps .. lol.... Take a "Before & After" Registry comparison. -http://sourceforge.net/projects/regshot/
Good Luck.!! Anyone who got Screwed (up).

Very nice idee, but ...
1. Asked me two times for a WinXPPro-Install-CD, and then, at the third request, for my WinXPHome-CD.
2. Stopped at 18 - Repair Volume Shadow Copy Service:
"Couldn't complete ..."
3. Could only stop it working with "brute force", because:
"Waiting for current repair to finish" :-((
I will try it once more with an unmarked option 18 ...

when all else fails give it a try ! a very good tool to repair damage done by viruses after the virus is removed . Like so many other tools their is no all in wonder. But this tool is very handy and can be very deadly in the wrong hands, not for the novice, more for the expert!

Whilst I love the power of this program, it doesn't log everything it does--the log file is nigh on useless.
When my registry is tweaked I expect to know exactly what those tweaks are and this program does not do that. Even for experienced users, especially with the default settings as ticked, one could end up with a disaster.
Sure, the program amply warns you to backup but that's not the point--you might want to know what the changes were to a particular registry key at any time and that's why a detailed log is essential.
Forget this program, it's still far too immature and incomplete.
P.S. Despite Uriel's comments, I didn't screw my registry and if I did I'd restore from my ERUNT backup--that marvelous registry backup utility. To illustrate the problem, I'll use the WMI fix as an example (i.e.: the only item ticked). Tweaking.com (or the Windows utilities that it called made hundreds of adjustments (you can see the corrections taking place) yet the log file said essentially nothing except that it was repairing under both the user and system accounts.
