Apps to repair XP

  iqs 14:49 11 Dec 2009

Just wondering if anyone has one of those apps that allegedly finds and repairs any issues it finds with XP ?
If yes,did it work and what was is called.

If a decent one existed we helproom members would all have been out of a job.

As Fruit Bat /\0/\ said, I don't think there is any such thing as real magic yet? But if you do happen to stumble across some, be sure to let us know!

In the meantime though, do you have a specific problem that we might be able to help you with? If so ask away. ¦¬)

Notwithstanding Fruit Bat's cynicism, have you tried sfc /scannow ?

After most options are exhausted, the best one I found is called a 'fresh reinstall'. G

Hi and thanks for the help.

I don't have a specific problem with my PC,just have a few minor issues which sfc /scannow wont address.I was thinking of opting for a repair install,but have known this to make things worse.

I think a fresh install is a little drastic at this present time.I cloned the OS/HDD when I reinstalled it last December,I could connect this HDD,but don't fancy reinstalling all the apps.

So hence the thread for an app that will fix XP.

Thanks all for advice

Have you tried running 'CHECKDISC'...

Click on 'My Computer'
Right click C: (your OS drive)
In menu click 'Properties'
Click the 'Tools' tab
Under 'Error Checking' click 'Check Now'
click the box next to...
'Automatically Fix File System Errors'
Click 'Start'
A notice will say it can't do it until the next time you boot. Click 'Yes' and reboot
