Odd. Have used the programs extensively. Never had any problem.

Good to hear that your machine is running fine, but the whole point of Shane's hard work is to help people whose machines are not.

Personally I have never encountered problems with any Tweaking.com or PcWinTech.com programs, the help, advice and time spent solving problems is second to none. "Worth the trouble?", You bet!  :smiley:

I take it you are talking about my Windows Repair program?

Every single repair is tested on a fresh install of every version of Windows. HP, Dell and even Microsoft support use it now.

But every computer is different and there are unknown variables. Thats why I have a built in registry backup in the program. If you had any trouble just restore the registry and you will be good.

You didnt give me any information to work with at all.

What problems are you having?
What version of my program? (ALWAYS use the latest version)
What version of Windows?
Did you do a registry backup and if so did you restore to it?

I can only make the program better by people coming to me when they have problems and working with me so I can fix it. :wink:

I have never had a problem either, and I have been using Shane's programs for several years now. Keep in mind, a system can be so screwed up the only options are a repair install or full re-install. Aaaannnddd you have to follow the directions when using it.... cough, cough like disable your anti virus etc..when running the program.

hi, allow my explanation
1. reset registry permissions - corrupts windows store appz - some features wont work
2. repair file persmissions - everyone now has access to "user" files on the network, this is no different than trojan-ware, the OS is now completey without adequate security. anyone now has access to the ENTIRE file system
3. Windows 'refresh" now not working, deliberate? i'm wondering
4. registry backup can be done simply via Regedit
tweaking.com via windows firewall now has FULL access to computers running this software
This is dangerous software, and the intend may be malicous
Users should be fully aware of this!!
Those who claim, they experience no problems, worry, your file system is accessable -registry/file permissions should NEVER be tampered with

You didnt answer some of my questions :tongue:

1. reset registry permissions - corrupts windows store appz - some features wont work

Again, what version of the WR are you using? I have ran the current version on a LOT of Windows 8 and 8.1 systems and the app store and all features work fine. And they work fine on a fresh install of 8.1. But every system has unknown variables, so problems can happen. In the current version I had a lot of fixes that handle those.

2. repair file persmissions - everyone now has access to "user" files on the network, this is no different than trojan-ware, the OS is now completey without adequate security. anyone now has access to the ENTIRE file system

How is that? The program doesnt add any shares, and users on the network dont have access to the files unless they are shared. Administrators and the System account are added to the file permissions, how does this cause a problem like a virus?

People dont have access to the entire file system, again unless you are sharing the files then people can not access them over the network, and if you are referring to the hidden admin shares you would need to have the user name and password of the system in order to access that hidden share.

3. Windows 'refresh" now not working, deliberate? i'm wondering

deliberate? Seriously? So you think I purposely did something to make Windows Refresh not work, how on earth would that benefit me?

4. registry backup can be done simply via Regedit

So what is your point on that? Most home users dont have a clue how to do that, so I made a tool to do it for them. How is that a bad thing?

Why do i have the feeling you only came here to attack me and my work and not actually help make the program better or get help with any of the problems?

And having Administrator access to files and registry is how Windows should be. If a user is the admin they want full rights. This does NOT make the system available to the everyone on the network on internet. If you are on a user account that is not administrator then you are still locked down.

If you want help I will be more than happy to help out and find what ever problems you are having and get them fixed. if you only came here to complain then please get a better understanding of how the program works and how Windows works before you accuse me and my work of being malicious.

Dont like my work, then do use it.

Shane

I don't have to worry LOL! My system is LOCKED down from anyone I don't want to have access to it. Shane's programs are safe and secure. As he has stated, there are variables to each system and he tries to get his programs to work for every one. If your having problems with it working correctly for you, Shane (or some of us here on the forum) will work with you to figure it out to make the program better.

Over the years Shane has shown himself to be a hard working, helpful and honest guy. Questioning his motives and integrity in this forum is, to me, shocking and unacceptable.  :shocked:
