You may have come across a taste of this if you’ve used the Microsoft knowledge base.    Some KB articles include a Fix-It link which automatically applies the corrective action needed.




Well Microsoft have now taken this much further and have released a Beta of Fix It Center, a troubleshooting and automatic repair tool for Windows (XP SP3 or later).

The tool includes many diagnostics for common problems such as:

Hardware devices not working

Internet explorer crashes

Power management problems

Performance problems

and many more…

The tool also gives you an online management interface where several PCs can report back their current status – a feature which could be useful to small businesses?



The tool is quick to down load, simple to install (without requiring a reboot) and is very easy to use.

This could save a lot of helpdesk calls and visits to computer repair shops!
