Microsoft Fix it Center

Posted: Nov 10, 2011 - Jim Bernstein

Fix It Center was created by Microsoft to find and fix common computer issues automatically making it easier for novice users to fix problems they may otherwise not be able to fix. Of course since it was created by Microsoft it will only work for Microsoft software. It can also help prevent new problems by checking for known issues and installing updates. It does this by combining the diagnosing and repairing a problem into an easy to use automated interface.

Features of Fix it Center include:

  • Ease of installation and helpful wizards that guide you through the setup process and help you use the program.
  • Automated troubleshooters that fix problems with your computer. Fix It Center scans your computer and then gives you the option to have it automatically fix the problem or let you decide what to do.
  • Preventive maintenance that helps you find and fix issues before they become serious problems. Fix It Center will also automatically download the latest solutions.

After installing Fix It Center it will show you what kind of potential problems you may have based on your computer's configuration.

Next, you can click on Run next to the action you want Fix it Center to perform to check your system for any issues related to the software or device listed.

Then you will have the option to have Fix it Center fix any problems it finds automatically or you can choose how to fix the issue.

If you choose to fix the problem manually it will show you your repair options.

If you click on Settings you will have options to create an online account where you can customize options such as where troubleshooter reports will go. Data Sharing allows information on your computer's hardware configuration and troubleshooting to be sent to your Fix it Center Online account.

 

Fix it Center will run on the following operating systems:

•Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3)
•Windows XP Pro (64-bit) Service Pack 2 (SP2)
