summary

Now don't get me wrong, not bashing msoft here but i don't think this is ready for noobs yet.
few glitches ( see pic below ).

Still the same as troubleshooting with more chintz and glintz.
Option of shooting online or "DIY"still present.

Now for that which we mostly wish for...CLEAN UNINSTALL.
.............................................................................................
Cean! as far as i can see without going into the innards too much.
(used revo advanced)

Summary. Good for someone ( when past beta ) with a problem and with broadband
and little knowledge of what is actually going on (or not) lol.

not recomended for now ..meh! JMHO. ( just add salt )

Needs someone with a problem to do a more detailed review.

cheers.

hubris,
Thanks. Your evaluation is what I expected. Perhaps the program will actually help MS to improve their diagnostic capabilities.

Just installed this Karl and ran a couple of them. It kind of looks like an extention of the troubleshooting feature in the control panel. I'll try a few more and let you know.

Sounds real good. Let me know if you think we should mention or recommend the link to some of those with questions.

Aught to place a provisio here: To others thinking of using this>>>>

Don't use this if you don't feel confident in having to go over all your settings to get back to where your system was set up to your liking.!!

Or make a backup first.

Good point hubris,

I have been choosing the "Find Problems and let me decide which ones to fix" option just to see what it would find. Instead of the " Find and fix automatically".

I think it's somewhat useful to at least let it see if it finds and recommends something, If it is something you know you've changed then you don't have to apply that fix.

Is it any different from the "View All" troubleshooting already in Windows 7?

I installed it and played with it some.

I agree with Derek and Hubris; it is very similar to the built in troubleshooter found in the control panel; but it seems to be a little more advanced and more thorough.

I ran the HomeGroup, Performance and Shared Folders modules. Since I am not experiencing any actual problem, I opted for FixIt to show me solutions and let me choose rather than automatically fix problems.

I think the HomeGroup module is pretty good. I wish I had this when I was struggling to get HomeGroup working. I believe it would have diagnosed most of the problems I was having. The module looked at the services affecting HomeGroups and that would have solved a couple of problems of posters here that I have read.

The performance module did not seem much different to me that what is found in the control panel's Performance, Information, and Tools. Since I am not having any performance problems, it basically took me to Startup Programs and suggested that I uncheck any startup programs not needed to run at startup. I am not sure a noob would know what needs to run at startup and what doesn't. However, I know a lot of new users are not aware of the startup programs option and so many programs install themselves to run at startup. So I think this is a good thing.

Overall, I think Fixit is on the right track and will be a good, useful tool for less experienced folks.

I endorse this 100%. I recommend that FixIt automatically create a restore point before any changes are made.
