Repair & Fix Windows 7 & Vista problems with FixWin Utility



RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance

We are pleased to release a first-of-its-kind application for Windows 7 & Vista: FixWin. FixWin is a 529 KB freeware portable application to repair & fix common Windows annoyances & issues. FixWin detects whether you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista installed and accordingly offers you the relevant fixes only. Windows 8 users may want to downloadFixWin v2 for Windows 8.

UPDATE: 19th March 2010. FixWin v 1.2 has been released which includes some minor bugfixes and UI changes. The download links mentioned below point to FixWin v 1.2 now.

While there were several tutorials and how-to's already available on the Internet to deal with such annoyances, FixWin as a single utility was conceptualized, to fix some of the common annoyances which may be faced by a Windows user.

Does your Recycle Bin not refresh correctly? Or maybe you find that for some reason your right click context menu has been disabled in Internet Explorer! Or perhaps things are not fine with your Windows Media Center and you need to flush & rebuild Windows Media Center database! Maybe you opted to be not-warned while deleting Sticky Notes and you now want the warning dialog box back! Or then perhaps, post a malware attack you find that your task manage or cmd or yourRegistry Editor has been disabled! Fixes for these and many more such common Windows problems are being offered here.

The solutions to repair and fix 50 common Windows annoyances, issues & problems have been categorized under 5 tabs, viz : Windows Explorer, Internet & Connectivity, Windows Media, System Tools & Misc Additional Fixes.



1. We first suggest that you run the System File Checker Utility. The button provided on the Welcome page, will 'run sfc /scannow' and will check for and replace any corrupted Windows system files. It is expected to take anywhere from 5-10 minutes. If asked to, do reboot.

2. Next we insist that you create a System Restore Point. The provided button will create one, called Safe Point. We always recommend that you create one before making any changes to your system. Should you wish or need too, you can always go back to this Safe Point.

3. Having done that, apply at most one fix at a time and restart your computer. Please check if things are to your satisfaction; and if not, you have the option of restoring back immediately.



It has been tested on Windows 7 & Vista, 32-bit and 64-bit versions. However, FixWin may fail to run if you have modified Windows 7 or Vista Image using third party app like vLite etc, as it may miss some core components required for FixWin to run and thus cause of failure.

You cannot print or print preview Web pages in Internet Explorer on Windows

Why some things dont work with vista or windows 7


The most common issue people have with these new OS systems,(windows 7/vista) is that they have a new form of security called 'administrator privileges'. Basically, your average user doesn't know about this, because most installation CD's or DVD's just auto-run when you insert them, and unfortunately, the computer most of the time does not prompt you to do anything special at all, and the software just installs. But underneath that installation, certain 'privileges' have been allocated to that installation, so here's the tip; Whenever installing new hardware or software, be sure to stop the auto-run feature, or close it down if it starts by itself, right click the disc or file where you are installing from, and select 'run as administrator'. If you are not the administrator, or do not have access to that privilege, then I suggest getting that access, or get the person who has it to give it to you! If you are installing from disc, go to Start>Computer and the disc should show there. Right click on it, select 'open' or 'explore', find the installation file (usually a .exe file) and go through the procedure above. Enjoy!

I want motherboard drivers for compaq KT477AA ACJ SG3430IL drivers (windows 7 32 bit ) Pls help me..


Windows 7 can be told to use the Vista drivers for most things.....did you try that ?


[ Note : This method should only be used whenever you have a "setup file" or .exe extension to run to install the drivers.]


Leave the device unplugged while doing this (Unless the drivers are stored on the device, for instance a Mobile Phone)


If you have already installed the Incorrect Drivers, then do a System Restore, or Restore a System Image, to a point before you installed the drivers, otherwise this might not work.




1. Right-click the Setup File and choose -Properties-.


2. Next, click on the -Compatibility- tab.


3. Then, check the box marked "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and select -Windows Vista- from the drop-down list.


4. Next, check the box "Run as Administrator", then press the [OK] button.


5. Run the setup file as normal, and should allow the installation of the Vista driver files.

I suspect your pc is not seeing the hard drive. I take it you are using a Sata drive but not installing the sata driver for the motherboard. Try installing on an IDE drive. If this works the above is correct.Good luck.

Can i convert a 32 bit to a 64 bit


You can use the Upgrade option during Windows 7 installation, which preserves your files, settings, and programs, only if you're currently running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista and you want to upgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 7. For more information, go to Upgrading to Windows 7: frequently asked questions on the Windows website.
If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or vice versa, you'll need to back up your files and choose the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. Then, you'll need to restore your files and reinstall your programs. For more information about performing a custom installation, see Installing and reinstalling Windows 7‍.
gl_ico.png Notes
  • To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files.
  • If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error. You'll need to use a 32-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files instead.
  • Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista but you plan to install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can move your files to an external location manually or use Backup and Restore in Windows Vista. For more information, go to Back up your files and
