Re-installed Windows Repair
« on: December 02, 2018, 03:17:15 PM »
... and can't get rid of the end user license agreements (EULA). Doesn't seem any way to click out of them.  Also, there's no way to get past it to start working the actual program. 

It starts 'checking files' and then another EULA popup happens.

When you say you've reinstalled the program, was that in an attempt to resolve that problem ?

No, I reinstalled because the old one was outdated and said it was missing files.

Before I re-installed, I uninstalled from cntrl-panel/add/remove programs.

You haven't said which version of Windows you are using but in All Programs or equivalent, if you expand Tweaking.com you will see it has its own uninstaller.

Can you use that to fully uninstall and then download and install afresh to see if you still get this problem.

Windows tends to leave registry residue after its own uninstall.

That would be WinXp Pro, SP 3.   Okay, I will try the uninstaller and set it up again with new download.

What is the reason you need to run the repair program ?

No special reason other than to speed things up in general if possible.   Still getting the EULAs.   :sad:

I'll pass this on.

The program is designed to repair problems with Windows and is not a tune up program.

This article gives a few tips on how you may improve the performance of your machine, but disregard Method 1 of installing that tune up program - Windows usually has sufficient tools of its own to do the job.
