Tom,

I appreciate your excellent support since I joined in Feb 2018.

Your answer works for me and I believe my assumptions are correct.

It would be a shame if you left the forum as you have probably helped countless users.

You might know more than Shane now about Tweaking.com - Windows Repair at least at the support level.

Perhaps there is documentation that Shane can send to you to help you with how Tweaking.com - Windows Repair has been designed so he does not have to be bombarded with questions from users so he can concentrate on fixes/upgrades.

Thanks!
Don Zimmermann

Whoever designed the Tweaking.com - Windows Repair | Advanced Repairs (Pro) | Missing Package Files - Reg Cleanup should know the answer.

I am assuming that this process will permanently delete the registry key of missing package files if I choose "Yes" and since they are missing I assume it should not cause a problem on my PC.

Please get an answer to my question and assumptions?

Thanks!

For Tweaking.com - Windows Repair | Advanced Repairs (Pro) | Missing Package Files - Reg Cleanup at the end of the process on, I think it was called, the Administrative Screen, which I think was gray, and, it asked "Permanently delete the registry key, I think HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,\???????????\C ? Yes/No".

I apologize for not writing down at the time of exectuion the screen name, screen color and registry key.

I answered No and the process ended and my PC has run OK since then.

I do not remember getting asked this question previously when I ran Missing Package Files - Reg Cleanup.

Why is that question there?

What are the implications of answering Yes or No?

Has Tweaking.com - Windows Repair been fixed so it does not keep a PC stuck in Safe Mode?

If Tweaking.com - Windows Repair has not been fixed, what is the estimated date that it will be fixed?

I decided to leave it as is as that is good enough for me as the fix is too involved and risky for me.

Thanks anyway!

For faster, I meant the PC Processer and Internet Speed.

My old HP PC Processer was 2.4 GHz and my new HP PC Processer is 3.6 GHz.

My old HP PC Internet Speed was 50 mbps of a Wi-Fi limit of 72 mbps and its problematic NIC topped out at 100 mbps. My new HP PC's NIC tops at 1000 mbps and its Internet Speed is 180 mbps which is from Comcast/Xfinity.

I also keep a lean PC using CCleaner Pro and Windows Automatic Maintenance plus automatically scheduled anti-virus/anti-malware programs.

I noticed on my new HP PC Win 10 64 Bit Home Edition that Tweaking.com - Windows Repair is not listed in Programs and Features of the Control Panel and, also, it is not listed in Uninstall in Tools of my CCleaner Pro. I downloaded it yesterday. It is listed in the Start Menu and I am able to open it.

I shutdown the PC and started the PC again and it still was the same as above.

Please advise?

It was time for me to get a new PC anyway as my old HP PC was about 4 years old and running slower than I preferred. By the way, my new HP PC runs great and is much faster.

Per other postings and myself in the Tweaking.com Forum, its seems Tweaking.com - Windows Repair needs more exhaustive Quality Assurance testing as this last bug and other bugs were a real doozy.

My prior reply was not just for you but also for others that read this post.


Also, you should not have deleted that other reply in that other post since it could have been helpful for others.


Although, I appreciate your help your comments sometimes are arrogant and self-centered and you should not let the power of being a global moderator get to your head!

Refer to my reply in Tweaking.com Programs & Site Help & Support / Re: Windows 10 build 1809 and WR (Make sure to use WR 4.4.0 or newer) for related information.

Last week, on my HP PC Win 10 64 Bit Home Edition pending some updates for Build 1803 from MS which were originally bad and were supposed to be fixed by the end of November 2018, I ran Tweaking.com - Windows Repair 4.4.0 Pro Version in Safe Mode with Networking using my NIC Card which had some intermittent dropouts but I started to run the Pre-Repairs Steps and I got the Blue Screen.

After I restarted my PC, it seemed to be stuck in Safe Mode without Networking and I could not do anything meaningful. Since I had NIC Card intermittent dropouts for a while and recent Wi-Fi failures on this PC, I got rid of my old HP PC and I got a new HP PC. 

My new HP PC Win 10 64 Bit Home Edition has all good updates for Build 1803.

I need to know if it is safe for me to run Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Pro Version in Safe Mode with Networking in the future and which version #?

13
Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Pro Version 4.4.0 in Normal Mode with Wi-Fi works as I stated previously which is good enough for me now.

Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Pro Version in Safe Mode with Networking Support will not work per you since I cannot get an Internet connection.

As I stated previous, If I have time I will try your solutions to get an Internet connection in Safe Mode with Networking Support and I will post it here if I do but do not hold your breath.

I consider this post closed for now until further notice from me.

Happy Holidays!

I think I must have checked it but I don't remember it since it must have been at least six (6) months ago as that was when Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Pro version and CCleaner Pro version both stopped working correctly.

15
Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Pro Version 4.4.0 in Normal Mode with Wi-Fi works now as I had to uncheck the Warn if changing between secure and not secure mode in Advanced in Internet Properties in Internet Options in Control Panel in Windows System in Start Menu in Win 10 64 Bit Home Edition.

Also, this fixed my CCleaner Pro manual update and will probably fix its auto update.

I got this fix from CCleaner Tech Support.

Who would have thunk?

I do have the Pro version of Tweaking.com - Windows Repair although I have to use the Free version of Tweaking.com - Windows Repair in Normal Mode with Wi-Fi since my name and key [Pro version] does not work in Normal Mode with Wi-Fi since it is blocked by something and I do not have an Internet connection in Safe Mode with Networking for my name and key [Pro version].

As I said before, If I have time I will get to your solutions but do not hold your breath.

When I ran the netsh wlan show networks cmd, it displayed that there were no wireless networks available in Safe Mode with Networking.

As always, I appreciate all of your help!

17
I ran the cmd without mode=bssid as that what it said to do in an article before you suggested this other way.

I will run the Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Free Version in Normal Mode with Wi-Fi as I know that works if Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Free Version in Safe Mode without Networking (Both Ethernet and Wi-Fi] does not work.

Jim just emailed me as I had a question about my Pro subscription and he said it is not a subscription but it is based upon the Pro version. For example, if I paid for Pro 4.x I will need to pay again at Pro 5.x.

As always, I appreciate all of your help!

In a previous reply in this post, I stated "I did try the netsh wlan show networks in Safe Mode with Networking support but it came back with that there are no Wi-Fi networks available. Will adding mode=bssid get it to work?"

If I have time before my Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Pro Version expires unless a new MS Build fixes my problem, I will try all of your solutions and let you know the outcome via this Post.

Will Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Free Version in Safe Mode without Networking (Both Ethernet and Wi-Fi] work?

Again, I appreciate all of your help!

The only way I know how to restart my router is to unplug the AC cord as there is no on/off switch.

I re-installed Tweaking.com - Windows Repair a few times.

I decided to only run Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Free Version in Safe Mode without Networking (Both Ethernet and Wi-Fi] as that is good enough for me.

Please confirm that for me?

I will keep trying the Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Pro Version periodically to see if it eventually works on its own until it expires.

I did not save the links and thus I do not have the links to any of articles about that Win 10 does not support Wi-Fi in Safe Mode with Networking.

Thanks for all your help!

Does your device have a NIC card?

It is my understanding that the next Build after 1803 has not been released as both the October Build 1803 and November Build 1803 Updates are not working on some devices including my PC, according to a MS Knowledgebase Article.

It is my understanding that the November Build 1803 update was supposed to work and also fix the October Build 1803 update but it did not work also on some devices including my PC, according to a MS Knowledgebase Article.

It is my understanding that MS said that Build 1803 should be fixed by the end of November, according to a MS Knowledgebase Article but I am not holding my breath.

As I posted previously, there is a MS Knowledgebase Article that states Wi-Fi is not available in Safe Mode for Windows 10.

As I posted previously, I already turned off my router, no cables were connected and it was for at least 30 minutes.

I need you to verify that I should be able to run Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Free version in Safe Mode without the Pro features on my Win 10 64 Bit Home Edition PC without both a NIC connection and Wi-Fi?

21
I run Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Free version in Normal Mode using Wi-Fi since I cannot get a good NIC connection in Normal Mode and Safe Mode due to intermittent connection problems and Wi-Fi does not work for me in Safe Mode.

I cannot use the Pro features in Tweaking.com - Windows Repair even though I paid for them since something is blocking the name and security key in Normal Mode even though the Wi-Fi is working OK.

In the future, I should be able to run Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Free version in Safe Mode without the Pro features since Safe Mode is recommended which will have to be good enough for me so I will not get the Pro version again and see if I can get a pro-rated refund from Jim if I cannot get the Pro version working in Safe Mode.


At least another user in my other related post had a problem with Tweaking.com - Windows Repair working in Build 1803 and I still think the problem is with Build 1803 that I previously discussed in this post and the October and November Updates to it are not working and MS is supposed to fix it at the end of November but I think I will have to wait for Build 1804 to prove my theory so I will wait on the pro-rated refund until that time as I like the Pro features in Tweaking.com - Windows Repair.

22
I have not tried any of your solutions yet but post it if and when I do.

I plan to talk to Jim about this whole thing for more insights.

I run Tweaking.com - Windows Repair for monthly preventative maintenance on my Win 10 Home Edition 64 Bit PC.

23
What about using the portable version of Tweaking.com - Windows Repair on a USB Stick in non-Safe Mode with Wi-Fi?


Will Tweaking.com - Windows Repair on a USB Stick still be blocked by something as the Tweaking.com - Windows Repair on the Hard Drive is now?

24
I plan to discuss with Jim of Tech Support to use the portable version of Tweaking.com - Windows Repair on a USB Stick in Safe Mode which seems to be the path of least resistance instead of these other ways.
