Question about Avanquest Fix-It Utilities 8 Professional: Windows

1 Answer

I have removed Avanquest, but the Fix-It Utilities 'reminder' pop-up continues to interrupt what I am doing, urging me to update. How can I get rid of this or at least, stop it from popping up several times a day?

If you're running anything older than Windows 7,go to Start,Run,type in msconfig,a couple seconds later a box will pop up with several tabs one of which is Startup.Open the startup tab and look down the list of checked boxes for anything having to do with Avanquest,Fix-it,or anything else that you know was part of that program,and uncheck the box or boxes.Click apply,and then you have the option to restart your machine right then,or restart later.That's your choice,but if it's really annoying to have the pop-up I'd restart now.
The onle difference with Windows 7 is that when you open Start you're already active in the "action" box,there's no Run box.
Let me know what happens,I'll keep trying if that doesn't work.
Good or bad,please rate my post?
Thanks

Avinquest uninstalls and reinstalls repeatewdly, but does not launch. What shall I do to cause it to launch. Microsoft fix it utilities was started after that and is still running.


Sounds as though you are missing an "exe." command or file; which is something too complicated to answer here. Since you are trying to install a utilities program, you should know what an uninstall manager program is. Find one of these free uninstallers and download it and it will remove the Avanquest from your computer. At this point, that would be the easiest solution. You can then download Glary Utilities Pro as the recommended replacement to the Avanquest; GUP will then take care of everything for you with a minimum of effort. Trust me.

Program


Fix-It Utilities is a program by Avanquest that is marketed as an all-around computer protection and enhancement tool.
Fix-It Utilities scans your computer for potential problems and fixes them automatically. Additionally, it monitors your computer in real time to alert you about hardware and software issues before they can cripple your computer.
If you are looking for a utility to handle your computer maintenance for you, Fix-It Utilities is one program that you might consider selecting.

Double-click the downloaded program file if you purchased the digital version of Fix-It Utilities directly from Avanquest.
If you purchased the boxed retail edition, insert the installation disc and allow a moment for the Fix-It Utilities installation program to load.
Click "Next" when the Fix-It Utilities Installation Wizard appears.
Read the terms of the Avanquest license agreement carefully before continuing.
If you are willing to abide by the terms, click the "Accept" button to continue.
Enter the name that you would like to register Fix-It Utilities under, and then type your 24-character product key exactly as it is shown in the product packaging or the email sent by Avanquest when you purchased Fix-It Utilities online.
Click "Next."
Select the radio button labeled "Complete" to install all of the features of Fix-It Utilities, and then click "Next" twice.
The installation utility begins copying the files for Fix-It Utilities to the hard drive.
When this process is complete, the installation utility displays a screen with four check boxes.
Use the four check boxes on the screen to indicate whether you would like Fix-It Utilities to check for and install updates automatically, whether you would like the program to make snapshots of your system for recovery in the event of a problem, whether you would like the program to monitor your computer for malware and viruses and whether you would like the program to scan your email.
Click "Next," and then click "OK" and "Finish."
Fix-It Utilities is installed.
If you used the check box to configure Fix-It Utilities to check for updates automatically, the program begins scanning the Internet for updates immediately.

Tried everything to uninstall Avanquest Fit-It


Go into the the Program Files directory of your C drive. Look for Avanquest or Fix-It directory. Look for unwise.exe or uninstall.exe or something similar. Double click that and follow the prompts. If that doesn't work, please let me know and I'll do some more research.

How do i remove avanquest fix it


When the question is so specific, for sure, the user is not being able to remove it using the control panel. It would be great to ASK if they already tried such SIMPLE solution. Fix-it is a pain to be removed, specially the version 10 that won't be removed even with the Revo uninstaller! I'm working on 2 computers to remove this piece of s....ware and will post any solution I find for it.
