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.

2. Follow the instructions in the troubleshooter.

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.
