Program & Site Requests / Re: Rebuild Font Cache

FYI: another software program "CCleaner" includes a Font Cache cleaner checkbox option, which may accomplish the same purpose as "rebuild the font cache".

That would be plagiarizing someone else's work.

Not necessarily, if the software writer were to communicate with that other linked author, and obtain
"official permission" of some kind.
Also: from what I could tell (from reading the comments section), there may be some further modifications needed
to make the software function 100% as intended.

A Windows repair feature that might be worth including as an option in the free version of the Windows Repair utility:

Build 3.9.9 was released quickly after 3.9.8.
No reparse errors now being reported, build 14393.10.

While waiting on a fix, here's an interesting/useful "Dism++" software that includes some useful functions:

It can (safely) clean out WinSxs stores, which saved ~600 Mb to ~1,200 Mb on various machines, can disable the little arrows on desktop icons, and dozens of other tweaks.
Can also convert .esd files to .iso files.

Download links for Win 10:

Don't confuse version number vs. build number.
Version 1607's latest build number is 14393.10.
At a command prompt, type "winver".

New version 3.97 posted today: same result.

Nice find - do you have a link to that fix ?

Does WR still find Reparse Points to fix and unable to repair them ?

1. Second reply here:

2. Yes, same Reparse Points errors & unable to repair. No noticeable bad effect of having the errors, however.

.NET Framework 3.5 is part of Windows.

Go Start - type appwiz.cpl and press enter - click on Turn Windows features on or off and when the window populates, you should see an entry for 3.5 with a filled box.

This means that only part of it used.

If it isn't filled then click on it - OK  and see if that is the cause of the Reparse Point problem.

If it is filled then click on it to uncheck - OK - you could try a reboot then go back and re-check its box.

Yes, but what are you supposed to do when that fails to work properly?
What did work for me was:
Command Prompt (Admin):
DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess /Source:z:\sources\sxs
Where "z" is the drive letter of the USB thumb drive (or optical disk) used for the O.S. installation.

Note: Windows 10 Build 14393.3 is (reportedly) the final RTM build, scheduled for release on Aug.2.
First noticed Reparse Point errors on Win 10 several builds previous.
Was hoping that updating to a newer Win 10 build number would have repaired the Reparse Points error, but unfortunately did not.
What prompted the diagnosis attempt, was that a certain older program needed Dot NET 3.5, which was balking when using the normal installation procedure.
Dot NET 3.5 is an optional feature that can be installed on an as-needed basis from the Win10 installation media.

OK: re-downloaded the v. 3.95 program, attempted repairs to Reparse Points & Environmental variable, but unable to fix either.
Log file & PRTSC attached.

Log attached; appears practically identical to yours.

Don't know whether this problem is related to this one:,134.0.html
But with the most recent utility 3.95 version, the "Repair Reparse Points" function fails to make any repairs.
This is for the latest Win10 64-bit, "Insider" build 14393.
The utility 3.95 finds 28 Reparse Points needing repair ("Problems Found: Yes"), but although the Repair function seems to churn away for a minute or two, nothing actually gets repaired. I've also tried booting into Safe Mode, with the same result.
Note: this particular O.S. installation has been re-updated several times from a previous "Insider" build, so maybe a complete re-format and re-install would clear up the errors.

Program & Site Requests / Scaling problem on hi-res screens

I'd like to report a problem with proper scaling on hi-res screens for the " - Windows Repair Free/Pro".
Noticed when attempting to use it on a Samsung ATIV Book 9, which is a laptop with a "  13.3" LED QHD+, 3200 x 1800, 16:9  " display.
In particular: the Repairs/Open Repairs portion with the check boxes is unusable, at least without messing with the screen resolution settings.
Thanks for an (otherwise) useful utility.

Well, okay.
What about: "the product version isn't properly shown when you right-click the file, and click Properties/Details." ?
If the correct version number was visible there, that would help solve the version confusion.
