Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 10.3.3.4
"Dangerous to your files!"
by feffster on April 25, 2010
Pros: Considering the problems I have had I don't want to say anything positive that would encourage people to buy this software
Cons: The utilities that are included don't work well and cause more damage than they fix.
Summary: The bottom line is: If you buy this software you are wasting your money and asking for lost files and poor system performance.
I bought this software a month ago and could go on for much more space than allowed here to explain the above statement but I will keep it to just two of the problems I have with this software. The two utilities are the main reason I bought the software.
First: The file undeleter often cannot recover files that were just deleted. When it can recover them it uses old MS-DOS file names that are limited to 8 characters such as "MYBEAU~1.JPG" instead of "My Beautiful Wife in the Red Dress.jpg" In the event that you accidentally delete a folder that has many similarly named files you will have to spend a lot of time opening each one and deciding what name to give it. If the folder happens to be a program folder where you don't know all of the file names, you are just out of luck.
Second: This is the really bad one. The temporary file cleaner. This utility attacks and removes files that it shouldn't. Earlier today I used it and allowed it to clear my web history and temporary internet files. The cleaner also deleted ALL of my bookmarks for Firefox. I can't think of any way those could be considered temporary files! I didn't tell it to shred the files but given the usefulness of the file undeleter, I still haven't been able to find.the file that contains the bookmarks.
I am dreading the discovery of what else is gone that shouldn't be. There was no list given of specific files that were removed but it did give a basic rundown. 5040 files. 1.8 gb. I use Windows Disk Cleanup often so there shouldn't have been that many temp files hiding on my system. I was wanting something a little more thorough than the basic Windows tool. I guess I got it.
Here is the review page, and it's mostly BAD news!
Maybe it's doing you a favor by failing to install. Get your money back if possible (btw, couldn't find any reports of it not installing).
Good luck, hope this helps you, and thanks for using FixYa.

If you use Internet Explorer you may experience issues where the browser freezes, hangs up and stops responding.
Although many things can cause the browser to stop responding, if the problem persists there are a few troubleshooting techniques that you can use to fix the problem.
Troubleshooting Internet Explorer may require you to perform a few steps or several, depending on the cause of the problem.
Click "Start," choose "All Programs" and click on the "Windows Update" option.
A new window will appear.
Click the "Check for updates" link on the left side of the window.
Windows will connect to the internet and search for updates for your system.
Click the "Install updates" button on the right side of the window.
Windows will automatically download and install any updates it finds.
Restart your computer, if prompted.
Delete Temporary Internet Files
Click "Start" and select "Control Panel."
Click the "Network and Internet" selection then click on "Internet Options."
The Internet Properties dialog box will appear.
Click the "Delete" button beneath the "Browsing history" section.
A new window will appear.
Place a check-mark next to "Temporary Internet files" and click "Delete."
Allow the computer to delete the temporary internet files then close the Internet Properties dialog box.
Remove Problematic Add Ons
Click "Start" and enter "Internet Explorer" into the Windows search bar.
Click on "Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)" when it appears in the list.
Internet Explorer will launch with no add-ons running.
Click "Tools" on the right side of the browser and select "Manage Add ons."
A pop up window will appear.
Click on "Toolbars and Extensions" beneath the "Add on Types" section on the left side of the window.
A list of add ons will appear on the right side of the window.
Scroll through the list of installed add-ons and locate third party add ons that you've recently installed.
Note that you can look at the "File date" for a date of when you installed the add on.
Look for add ons that you installed at approximately the same time you began experiencing issues with Internet Explorer not responding.
Click on any suspected problematic add-ons and click the "Disable" button at the bottom of the window. Close "Internet Explorer (No Add ons)" and restart the browser normally.
Verify that disabling the add-on fixes the problem.
If not, repeat this section and disable another recently installed add on until you fix the problem.
Hope this helps.
