A couple of comments/simple requests
« on: March 21, 2014, 06:19:23 PM »
1) When I maximise the program (standard practice when you get to the repairs bit) it goes to full screen (literally) including covering the taskbar, which is very annoying as you need to be able to easily access the taskbar for other tasks....can this be fixed please?


2) There is a grammatical error in the following: "location" instead of "located"

"Restore Important Windows Services:

This will restore the services that are location under the files folder and regfiles."


Also, can these "important" services be listed by default please?


3) Is the SSL/HTTPS/Cryptography repaired in any of your fixes as I can't seem to find it mentioned anywhere?


Thanks again for a brilliant program!  :smiley:

If we can get these niggling (for me anyway) issues sorted, I'll happily give you a donation for all your hard work.  :artist:

1. I know and I hate it as well. The problem is that it is a borderless form since I am using my own look instead of the windows theme I have a borderless forms. And for some reason when you maximize a borderless for in Windows it covers the whole dang screen. Cool thing that that I did, once it is full screen just resize it from the bottom right and pull it up a little and get the taskbar back. Annoying I know, but havent found a way to stop Windows from doing that.

2. If it wasn't for spell check people would think I am slightly retarded. I fixed that spelling now so it will be there in the next update, you can actually control what the info on the repairs say as it is all stored in the txt files in the repairs_info folder. The program pulls the info from those files :-)

3. Nothing that targets it directly. Is there repair steps for that somewhere on the net, if so point me in the direction and I will see if it is a repair that can be added :-)

Before I discovered your program, for years I was always using the freeware "Complete Internet Repair" as a starting point for basic fixes after any malware had been removed as it's very simple & it works brilliantly.

It's still my first thought, and this https thing is part of this...I *think* you have all the other repairs covered, but maybe you can download it and have a quick check?

When you run the repair(s) you see all the processes whizzing by at the bottom of the window, but you can probably capture these to view at your own speed!

I suppose there's no harm checking to make sure you've got all the other processes covered with your tool.  :wink:






Which *important Windows services* are restored??

Go to the files folder and there you will see regfiles folder. The service reg files are all there :-)

The repair winsock has a bit of stuff in it that should help, I will check out the other program and see if I can pull anything from it :-)

Just grabbed the program, it was made in autoit so I decompiled it and have all the code. Looks like about 90% of what it does is already in my repair tool. Need to look at it more to try and find what else it does :-)
