WRAIO 4.0.15 installed OK after I told MSE to ignore the warnings.

Hi Ross,

Firstly, you should edit your post to remove your email address, otherwise you will attract a lot of unwanted spam via Web bots.

Secondly, I would suggest you try downloading the latest version of WR AIO from the Direct Download link on this page and install to update your current version.

You don't by chance have Malwarebytes 3.4 4 installed? There is a glitch in the latest release that can give similar symptoms - see the second post in this thread and the temporary work around until the fix is issued.

I've come across this Wiki-Errors site before when searching for resolutions to error messages. I believe all the links take you to the same computer fixing software that'll supposedly search your computer for problems and then present you with an enormous list that require you to purchase the software in order to fix the "errors". The universe does not contain a sufficiently long bargepole to touch this with.

This is my system for avoiding having to worry too much about spam.......

I have one domain name that I mainly use for personal mail that redirects mail to different Gmail accounts depending on the prefix to the @. I have one or two other Gmail accounts that I use for registration of software, forum registration etc. It's exceedingly rare that spam ever gets through Gmail's filters. Every so often, I review the Spam folders in Gmail for anything that's been wrongly filtered, but it's unusual for that to happen. When I download mail from the Gmail accounts to Outlook 2010, Google automatically archives the mail so I have a backup there of all my mail going back years, in addition to the regular backups of my Outlook PST files.

Works well for me.

"Snowden says it's an open-source tool designed for human rights activists and other people at risk and it uses an Android phone's sensors to detect changes in a room". So might excite the paranoid but I don't expect the rest of us really need it - "changes in a room?" Really?

Anyway, a wonderful, stress-free Christmas and New Year to all...........

Thanks - have a great Christmas and New Year.


Yes, it is confusing - I use Tree Size and examining those folders in the past has given me a headache - I was getting problems with the size of my SVI folder growing uncontrollably with Malwarebytes (happily resolved with later versions of the software) and making sense of what was going on was difficult. My main concern is that, when I have created a Restore Point using WRAIO, I've not been able to restore from it, so I don't trust it. By and large, Windows 7's inbuilt restore process has always worked for me. But it's always belt and braces for me - a combination of regular bootable backups and restore point backups to external detachable media using Casper 10 alongside registry backups in WRAIO and restore point creation in Windows.

Thanks - as I said, it's no big deal for me but could be catastrophic for someone who hasn't created a system backup and is relying on the restore point "created" within WRAIO.

I've brought this up before but creating a Windows System Restore point from within Window Repair All-in-One still doesn't seem to work properly, at least in Windows 7 Home Premium. It says it's created a Restore Point, and it shows up Windows Restore, but the backup process is completed extremely quickly and I can't believe it's a reliable Restore Point. I've just tried creating one again this morning and the situation is as before. I never use WRAIO to create a Restore Point, but a novice user might.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5737 Windows 8.1Pro x64 Core i7 8GB
I believe my problem is from the nut behind the keyboard. I have many files that need to be replaced but I have no idea how and what they are. I don't want windows 10, and I had a Microsoft Technician stop the windows 10 from updating back when it was aggressively updating on PC's, he removed a lot of files(updates) from working. So I don't know if that is why things started to go downhill. I have been getting a hard drive failure when testing it, but it was still working good. I have done some cleaning and maintenance and probably messed things up dealing with the registry.
So I need someone who can see if I can repair these problems or if I need to get a new hard drive which Dell tells me do, but they didn't try to see or fix anything. I need to know or try repairs first.
 I appreciate any help or information!
Thank you!

Hi Liz,

While we're waiting for someone more experienced to give you specific advice, I'd urge you to ensure that you have a backup strategy in place and that all your important files are backed up before you do anything else. If Dell tell you that your drive is defective, it is likely to fail at any time and put all your data at risk. If you don't have a strategy in place, you can at the minimum copy your important documents across to writable dvd(s) or USB drives in the interim but I would recommend you use something like Macrium Reflect free or my favourite paid solution Casper 10 from FSS who I know are having a 50% off Black Monday deal today only (I have absolutely no connection with them, just used them for years) to create a system image or bootable clone. Good luck!

No problems - though it's something that needs fixing (not your memory😀).
