I just wanted to reiterate a statement I made in my first posting: You may wish to run the tool more than once, as absolutely insane as this may sound at first glance.
This tool does, (or tries to do), a lot of work. Especially on a first-try, when things are barf'd all to Hell and Gone, (as yours seems to be), it may not be able to fix everything.
It's sort-of like a defrag. You really need to run it several times on a badly defrag'd disk to get it really cleaned up.
In your case what is likely to happen is this:
- It will run and try to fix the things it can, and it will throw up it's hands in dispair over the things it can't fix.
- On a second try, because many of the original problems are now resolved, many of the things it could not fix before are fixable. However there will be things that still cannot be repaired.
- A third try will solve many of the problems that the first and second tries could not fix.
- A fourth try will solve many. . . . . (etc.)
- And so on.
Eventually, you will reach a point where successive runs take about the same length of time - usually measured in fives or tens of minutes. Once you get to that point, you're done.
However, please realize that you may have to run this tool a multitude of times in succession
to get real results. Don't forget to reboot after every couple of runs or so, so that the system can clean out cruft from TEMP and memory.
Go get 'em tiger!
What say ye?
