FixWin offers one-click fixes for loads of Vista and Windows 7 annoyances
Fortunately, The Windows Club has a nice portable app which provides much of the same functionality as FixIt.
FixWin is a tiny download which packs loads of helpful registry fixes for Vista and Windows 7. Everything from a disabled Task Manager or RegEdit to replacing missing shortcuts and fixing that CD problem I mentioned above. FixWin can also tackle a handful of Windows Media Player glitches such as messed up file associations, sync problems, and messed-up libraries. In total, the 173KB program contains 50 fixes.
As with any one-click fix program, it's a good idea to create a system restore point prior to making any changes. FixWin's developer has thoughtfully included a button on the app's main tab to make things easy on us.
FixWin is available for download from The Windows Club -- scroll down about halfway and look for the glowy arrow pointing at a hard drive.
