How to Use FixWin 10 to fix problems
- First of all, run the System File Checker. You can do this on the welcome screen, via the button, ‘run sfc /scannow’. It will take 5 to 10 minutes and a system reboot will most likely be required, so you must wait for that time.
- If you already know that you were facing problems due to Windows store or Store apps, go to Re-register the Store apps. Only a 1-click button will be required to do so very conveniently from the welcome page.
- If you already know that Windows 10 OS is causing issues, run the DSIM to restore your windows system image to normal. A single click button for this is available on the home page.
- A System Restore point is recommended next. Go to create a System Restore Point and it will guide you through the steps. This will act as a safe restoration point in case of any problems any time later.
- Always remember to apply only one fix, restart, and then apply the next fix if still required. If things go the opposite way when you restart, that is you do not wish to have those changes, immediately rollback.
- Use the “?” button to see what each fix would do, before you apply the fix. Also double-clicking on the fix after this “?” is a manual way to apply the fix.
- If you cannot find a fix that you need, go to Search For More Fixes on the homepage and search for it. You might have to navigate to it in that case rather than a single click.
