I started Tweaking Windows Repair last night around midnight and its still fixing errors. I wanted to know how long does this usually run?
Thanks for any help, Lindad

I think it took about 45 mins on mine but I didn't have anything wrong with mine.

Generally when it takes a long time it can be because of problems with the HDD.

Did you run a chkdsk /f from an elevated command prompt or just the chkdsk from within the program ?

Any further help will this will require you to open a thread of your own rather than hijacking this one.

You will need to post the version of Windows you are using and what problems you are experiencing that you decided to run Windows Repair.

Alrighty I opened your thread over here.  :smiley: 
So it can be multiple reasons. First
Are you running in safemode? About 90 percent of the times 3rd party programs can conflict with repairs.
Have you ran a
Code: [Select]
chkdsk /f ?
Now after that what I need to know is what repair are you stuck on?
Next is do you see any CPU usage with the tweaking.exe? Let me know the results  :smiley:
