    I just ran it. Has 4 or 5 different sections you would run independently depending on your particular situation. Seems very basic, but may help with specific problems. Worth a try.

    As I said, it appears to be a very basic tool to help fix a few common problems that, yes may save a trip to a tech for a simple problem. I don't think it will have any effect, or minimal effects on the workload of IT folks.

    We were joking around, Ted. Should have been obvious.

    All the posters in that thread are either in IT or retired, and we've been having fun with it. We have another similar jokey thread here at Scuttlebutt.


    Unbelievable how few they have in the Windows category, covering 3 OS's. And they wasted one on FlightSimular / Streets and Trips, another on Win in Hebrew. Two of the 300 most common problems?

    Tried it, Not very pleassed with it. Cause computer to blue screen and can't get computer boot in any form or fashion. Blue screen is registery_error. Guess you could say it fixed it so you could buy a new drive to replace the old one.

    Have you tried to boot into safe mode? If you get into safe mode, try to restore to an earlier point. Is there any chance you may have suffered a hardware failure?

    Try inserting original installation disk or System Repair Disk and booting to it and run repair installation. A Google Search shows many links on how to do this.
