There's a new version out of "Windows Repair". The newest addition is the repair of "System Restore". And Shane needs Beta testers for this new feature.

And post your suggestions/comments/experiences in this thread:

New version of "Repair Windows" (v1.9.4) available. A preliminary view suggests that it tackles/repairs a number of Windows problems (much) better than the previous version(s).

 

Beta Testers needed for the improved "Repair System Restore" feature. This new feature is - for the time being (???) - not available for Win XP.

I have a number of questions for the readers of this thread:

- How often did you hear about problems with Adobe's Flash and Shockwave ?

- How many times were those problems solved by simply re-registering the appropriate files ?

 

If Adobe's Shockwave is still heavily used then it would make sense to add a special "repair job" in a program called "Windows Repair".

For me it would their horizontal line that's in the middle of for instance YouTube videos, that also happens to duplicate the video between those two halves. This is a known issue for people with some Nvidia display cards/drivers, something they fixed many Flash versions ago to only re-introduce in versions higher than v11.3.300.271.

 

- How many times were those problems solved by simply re-registering the appropriate files ?

Nada, never, zero, zilch.

Shockwave Player is not widely used; there are just a few public games that are based on Shockwave. Due to its low usage there are very few users reporting problems at the Adobe forum.

 

Flash Player (also known as Shockwave Flash) is very widely used for videos and games. There are a number of different problems reported in the Adobe forum, but there is no known general remedy for these problems. However, in many cases the problems can be solved by doing a "clean install" as described in http://forums.adobe.com/thread/928315

WARNING for users of Windows Repair (v1.9.6) (from www.Tweaking.com): the program contains a bug that can lead to repairs failing and unpredictable repair results. The bug is NOT "hiding" in one of the repairs itself but in the GUI. The program still can be used but the user has to keep two things in mind:

1. Don't use/try the "Beta Repairs" !!!

2. When the user has left the main repair window and wants to go back to that window to do some more repairs then the user MUST restart the program. Otherwise a number of repairs won't be executed or/and repairs will fail.

 

I DO hope this bug gets fixed in the very near future in v1.9.7

In case your wondering about the bug Willy2 is talking about he posted it here to let me know

 

http://www.tweaking.com/forums/index.php/topic,643.msg5358.html#msg5358

 

I will be looking to it today or tomorrow. Keep in mind the program is still safe and fine to use. The odd bug he reported is after you open the repair window, close it then go back in.

 

If your wondering Willy2 is one of the best testers I have ever had. No one picks apart my programs like him, he is kinda anal about it lol But he does help make my work better :-)

 

I can fix any bug that I can replicate. So I ill be looking into this as soon as I am done with my jobs today.

New version of the Svchost Look up tool available (v1.1.0). A Svchost.exe process can control e.g. 4 (running) services. Then these 4 services have the same PID but have a different (Svchost.exe) start switch and different names. This tool combines the info from two Task Manager tabs called "Processes" and "Services". (Win 7).

And we're working on an improved version of Windows Repair.

The new version of svchost (v1.1.0) doesn't show RAM usage per service/svchost anymore. Could it be added back?

One Svchost.exe process can control one or more services. Task Manager shows the memory usage for one process, not for each service. Perhaps the memory usage for each service can be pulled up as well. I don't know. Post your question on the Tweaking.com forum.

Yeah, might not be possible.

Thanks, posted a topic there.

New program out at www.Tweaking.com: Registry Compressor

 

IMO, a good succesor to NTREGOPT.

http://www.tweaking....compressor.html

 

Windows Repair has advanced to Version v1.9.12. In order to function properly, WR needs to (temporarily) change the state of a number of Window Services. Now at the exit of WR, the user can put those Services back to the user's favourite state.

 

E.g. with:

"SC config ....... start= ......"

http://www.tweaking.com/

 

Post your comments on the Tweaking.com forum and NOT here.

Yes, I have found Tweaking.com to be very helpful. Simple to use tools for Windows fixes and a good forum for complicated problems. :)
