    I haven't tried this yet. Hat tip to MerleOne for mentioning this software in another thread.

    I have used this on several computers and it works very well.

    There are many programs which claim to repair programs, but usually they do no such thing. This is one of only a few programs which can actually repair Windows problems.

    That's my impression also.

    There are screenshots on softpedia.com This program has a well thought out interface which suggests a logical repair sequence. It's not the typical "one click" instant repair tool where you don't know what's going to happen.

    I've downloaded but haven't tried yet. What makes it different from Windows FixIt download from Microsoft?

    If you find a Microsoft Fixit that might fix a given problem, I'd probably try that first because it's probably been tested more.

    Microsoft Fix-It is designed to fix specific problems. This has some specific fixes for problems not fixed by Fix-It as well as some generic fixes which can fix a lot of general Windows problems.

    @ MrBrian

    These three programs are a MUST for anyone seriously interested on cleaning and fixing computers from malware infections.

    In my spare time, I fix PCs/laptops infected by malware and these aforementioned tools are my favorites. Always carry them on my USB thumb drive.

    Thank you Zyrtec :). I knew about those other two before, but I hadn't known about Windows Repair until very recently.

    Very interestied thread !

    I've a question about UVK, 'Automatic anti-malware scan' scan with MBAM, HMP, SAS and TDS Skiller engine. How this feature works without downloading the corresponding application ? What I've understood, only update signatures need to be update, but not the program.

    I have in my system Malwarebytes, Hitman and TDSSKiller. It detected MBAM and TDSSKiller, so only updated them and started a scan, it did not detect Hitman, so it downloaded it and as for SAS, it downloaded the portable version

    Does this program fix changes made by malware? I haven't had to clean a computer in a while but I would like to have something that does that.
