Program & Site Requests / portable windows repair (pro Version)
« on: July 24, 2015, 01:52:58 AM »
so I love the windows repair portable version running a computer business it makes fixing computers less of a pain. my request is can you make your portable program install on the target operating system you are fixing as a pro feature. But make it install the free version so if the customer that I installed the free version of windows repair can choose to buy your program if they choose so. Another request is being able to have the program add a shortcut via the context menu I usually do this manually as explained in my previous post http://www.tweaking.com/forums/index.php/topic,3261.0.html . I'll also update my forum post with a reg file that will delete it from the context menu as well. Just in case users want to remove it in the future so your program can emulate that flawlessly :D

Computer Help / pc settings in windows 8.1
« on: July 09, 2015, 10:25:48 AM »
Alright this is my first post ever for asking for help  :wink: I'm not looking for help really I just need clarification.
So I used to like windows 8.1 till yesterday. after a nasty malware infected my sisters computer I Cleaned it up perfectly then after all the cleanups I ran the repair tool and fixed the corrupted .cat and .mum files and then I faced the chkdsk it pulled orphaned files and corrupted the ntuser.dat now i'm usually good at fixing corrupted profiles but this one was a pain in my you know what. so long story short i had to activate admin account and recreate a new profile. the pc settings was not opening it would open then minimize and just hang there I ran the repair tool twice. in safe mode still it acted up pc settings would just minimize. so i opened cmd  made a profile with these two commands
Code: [Select]
net user /add temp
Code: [Select]
net localgroup administrators /add temp I wanted to see if another account would do the same thing and sure enough it did. so I was stumped i needed pc settings to work. So I started to think and looked at each individual repairs on the repair program and unchecked all repairs and check marked just 2 repairs. (28.02) repair windows 8 app store (completely reset app store)  and repair 29 repair windows 8 component store. and it fixed the issue but just with that user. Now here is what i need clarification on obviously i need to run these two repairs at the moment on each user but is there a permanent solution to where this issue no longer occurs?

Os= windows 8.1 x64 version 6.3 (build 9600)

Let just say first off I love the repair windows all in one I hate having another icon on my desktop It's like my desk everything everywhere. I usually use the program to fix the computer when needed. And i hate having to type in the program name via the start menu or search through the directories.
So with a simple registry tweak i've added it to the right click context menu when i right click on the desktop. And then i looked at it and thought hmmm I like it more hidden out of the way so I made a extended registry string value to it. so now it only shows up when I click Shift+Rightclick
BACK UP THE REGISTRY BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS TWEAK
open registry and go to :

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\

you need to right click on shell and create a key called "Repair Windows" (without quotes)

now in the key
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Repair Windows
Create a new Expandable string value and name it "Icon"
modify the the value data to :
 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Tweaking.com\Windows Repair (All in One)\Repair_Windows.exe" (note the location may be different it all depends where you have it installed at)
Next create a new string value in the same key location under:
 HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Repair Windows
Name it "Position"
you can change the value data to either Top Middle or Bottom (I usually prefer bottom)

Now if you want it to show only when you hit Shift+ right click
Add a new sting value under:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Repair Windows
Name it "Extended"
And that is it for the hard part time for the easy part  :wink:
right click on the key:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Repair Windows
And choose new key:
Name it "Command"
Then open the key so you are in
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\Repair Windows\Command
right click on default and modify
and in the value data
C:\Program Files (x86)\Tweaking.com\Windows Repair (All in One)\Repair_Windows.exe  (Location may be different depending on where you have program installed)

And that's it no restart necessary  :artist:

Program & Site Requests / take ownership reg file (SHANE!)
« on: June 17, 2015, 12:51:43 AM »
@Shane

So I've looked at it and added LUAShield so users know its for administrative purposes. I guess this is a minor cosmetic add but uuuuuuuh I like it  :wink:

Code: [Select]
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas]
@="Take Ownership"
"HasLUAShield"=""
"NoWorkingDirectory"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\runas\command]
@="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F"
"IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\runas2]
@="Take Ownership"
"HasLUAShield"=""
"NoWorkingDirectory"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\runas2\command]
@="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F"
"IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas]
@="Take Ownership"
"HasLUAShield"=""
"NoWorkingDirectory"=""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas\command]
@="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F /t"
"IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant administrators:F /t"

Alright so what I'm curious about is what is that max limit of uploading a file To a post. I tried uploading a zip file with 84mb. And I would watch the stats of the connection info as IE is loading the page and when it finish's I get redirected to start a new topic and it's blank I'm not sure if the server is giving me a rest packet and not completing the forum post or what...
uploaded a picture of the connection info

User Submitted Tweaks & Guides / Event viewer clean up.
« on: June 12, 2015, 07:17:58 PM »
Have you just fixed a computer and the old error's are still in the event log?
I usually run this command after I fix a computer and give it back to my customers so if new error's appear I can diagnose them with out seeing the old ones I fixed.

type the command in the command prompt (RUN as Admin):

Code: [Select]
for /F "tokens=*" %1 in ('wevtutil.exe el') DO wevtutil.exe cl "%1"
@Shane this maybe usefull in the all in one repair program.

Hey Shane,
So I carry your portable AIO repair with me everywhere I go After I run all of the repair's I usually like to empty the prefetch to start it fresh. I figured what better way to do that then to run the disk clean up. And set the disk clean up to run after repairs.

Here is the Registry key I made in blue I also attached the .reg file
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\VolumeCaches\Prefetch]
@="{C0E13E61-0CC6-11d1-BBB6-0060978B2AE6}"
"Display"="Prefetch"
"Flags"=dword:0000007d
"Folder"="C:\\Windows\\Prefetch"
"FileList"="*.*"
"LastAccess"=dword:00000000
"StateFlags"=dword:00000001
"Description"="Cleans the Prefetch folder From C:\\Windows\\Prefetch"

Windows repair version 3.2.4 is out and has been updated to incorporate this option in the program go get it  :wink:

http://www.tweaking.com/content/page/windows_repair_all_in_one.html

Since Shane Incorporated the boot to safe mode he offers a much safer version of this. I recommend using the windows repair all in one. I removed the batch file script but left the uploaded batchfile. The reason I left the batch file uploaded is because the batch file will allow you to choose which version of safe mode you would like to access while the repair all in one just does safe mode with networking.

(updated to to {current} instead of {default} for users with dual booting OS)
(changed color of command prompt the other color hurt my eyes lol.)
(Added please wait after adding reg key noticed it may take a couple seconds for key to be added to registry)
(okay so I spent about an hour fixing minor things let me know if I should change anything or questions on it.)
