Repair & Fix Windows 7 & Vista problems with FixWin Utility



RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance

We are pleased to release a first-of-its-kind application for Windows 7 & Vista: FixWin. FixWin is a 529 KB freeware portable application to repair & fix common Windows annoyances & issues. FixWin detects whether you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista installed and accordingly offers you the relevant fixes only. Windows 8 users may want to downloadFixWin v2 for Windows 8.

UPDATE: 19th March 2010. FixWin v 1.2 has been released which includes some minor bugfixes and UI changes. The download links mentioned below point to FixWin v 1.2 now.

While there were several tutorials and how-to's already available on the Internet to deal with such annoyances, FixWin as a single utility was conceptualized, to fix some of the common annoyances which may be faced by a Windows user.

Does your Recycle Bin not refresh correctly? Or maybe you find that for some reason your right click context menu has been disabled in Internet Explorer! Or perhaps things are not fine with your Windows Media Center and you need to flush & rebuild Windows Media Center database! Maybe you opted to be not-warned while deleting Sticky Notes and you now want the warning dialog box back! Or then perhaps, post a malware attack you find that your task manage or cmd or yourRegistry Editor has been disabled! Fixes for these and many more such common Windows problems are being offered here.

The solutions to repair and fix 50 common Windows annoyances, issues & problems have been categorized under 5 tabs, viz : Windows Explorer, Internet & Connectivity, Windows Media, System Tools & Misc Additional Fixes.



1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.



It has been tested on Windows 7 & Vista, 32-bit and 64-bit versions. However, FixWin may fail to run if you have modified Windows 7 or Vista Image using third party app like vLite etc, as it may miss some core components required for FixWin to run and thus cause of failure.

How Can I Run Ulead Media Studio 7 With Windows 7


Most programs designed for Windows XP will run properly in Windows Vista or Windows 7;
occasionally, you will find one that will not. If you're unable to get a program to operate
normally in Windows 7, try running it in Compatibility Mode.
Perform these steps to setup an application
for Compatibility Mode:
Right-click on the program's shortcut or icon on the disk
click "Properties".
Click the "Compatibility" tab.
Check the box titled "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and select from the
list the version of Windows the program was designed to work with. If you don't know
what Windows version, select "Windows XP (Service Pack 2)"; you can always change it,
if the program does not run with that setting.
Click "OK."
Try running the program again. If you're still unable to use the program, select a different
mode and click other options on the Compatibility tab - i.e., make one change to
a setting, try running the program, make another change, etc., until it runs correctly).

Also, you can run the Program Compatibility
Wizard within Windows Help.
Hope that helps you....

I have a 12 station Orbit Model #57900and I want to water the same stations two to three times a day


Program modes
Program A or 1 is your primary program setting. All Zones will run on this program.
Select program B. Or 2
Set start time for program B usually an hour or two after the LAST zone (12) run time on program A or 1
1. set selected run time for the zones you want to run. 5 min -20 min ( leave the others 00:00 or off)
Select program C or 3
And repeat above.

Keep track of the start times of each program as 12 zones running for 10 min will add up to 120 min or 2 hours total. So if Program A/1 starts at 6am it will finish at 8 am. Set program B/2 start time at 11am. Them select the specific area/zone you want to run again will water the area a second time. Just remember to leave the other areas you don't want to water Set at 00:00 or off. Repeat through all the programs and you off to enjoy your day. Cheers

Program trying to install has min req for windows 95/98. My computer running win 7. Is my computer too new to run old program?


Some programs have to be run after going into the programs section, identifying the specific program and click " run as Administrator". In most cases the Windows 7 will run anything for older Windows programs. Best Wishes

Compaq pressario start up problem


you need to do a scan disc in tools for the hard drive. it need to be set to auto fix and it will then say it will start on next startup. shut down and restart and just leave it to do its stuff. it should fix it. failing that you need a system monitor system installed like winfix that can detect windows faults and fix them.

Will not function with Windows 7, what is wrong?


Not all programs that worked in Windows XP will run in Windows Vista or Windows 7.
I suggest you try compatibility mode to see if it helps.

If the program is not compatible, then you may try to install and run the program in compatibility mode.

Use the following steps:

1) Right click on the Program

2) Click on Properties

3) Click on Compatibility tab

4) Select Run this program in compatibility mode and select Windows Vista or whatever operating system the program was running successfully.



Refer to the link here: Make older programs run in this version of Windows

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows


If the compatibility is not successful, then try and runthe Program Compatibility troubleshooter:


1. Open the Program Compatibility troubleshooter by clicking theStart button.

Then click Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then clickTroubleshooting. Under Programs, clickRun programs made for previous versions of Windows.

2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

If you cannot install a program, insert the installation disc for the program and, using the troubleshooter, browse to the program's setup file, usually called Setup.exe, Install.exe, or something similar. The troubleshooter is not designed to work on programs that have an .msi file name extension.


If you run Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate version, install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP mode (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/default.aspx) and execute your software in Windows XP.


If you run Windows 7 Home Premium, try VirtualBox (www.virtualbox.org) or VMware Player (www.vmware.com) and install a separate copy of Windows XP (either Home Edition or Professional) for that purpose.You can find virtualization software free of charge that will run on Windows 7 Home Premium.
Hope this helps.

Getting older programs to run on Windows XP Getting older programs to run on Windows XP Most programs run properly on Windows XP. The exceptions are some older games and other programs that were written specifically for an earlier version of Windows. To run your program on Windows XP, try the following:
  1. Run the Program Compatibility Wizard. As an alternative, you can set the compatibility properties manually.
  2. Update your program, drivers, or hardware.
These options are covered in detail below.
The Program Compatibility Wizard This wizard prompts you to test your program in different modes (environments) and with various settings. For example, if the program was originally designed to run on Windows 95, set the compatibility mode to Windows 95 and try running your program again. If successful, the program will start in that mode each time. The wizard also allows you to try different settings, such as switching the display to 256 colors and the screen resolution to 640 x 480 pixels.
If compatibility problems prevent you from installing a program on Windows XP, run the Program Compatibility Wizard on the setup file for the program. The file might be called Setup.exe or something similar, and is probably located on the Installation disc for the program.
To run the Program Compatibility Wizard
  1. Start the Program Compatibility Wizard.
  2. Follow the instructions in the wizard.

I need to download a program that requires windows and my computer says the program wont run in dos mode how do i get it to work?


if the program requires windows that means it was design to work with windows and not with DOS.. you may want to get an old version of the program that will actually run under DOS.. usually you may be able to do the opposite which is to run DOS program on windows.

if possible try to get a DOS version of the program you are trying to run, or better.. upgrade your operating sytem so you can run your program and possibly other DOS programs.

post the program you are looking to download and confirm what operation system you're running and I'll try to look for it with you.
