Kim Komando - Daily Download

Automatically fix common problems in Windows

Computers are far from perfect. Every user has to do some troubleshooting from time to time. Maybe your DVD drive won't read inserted discs. Or, the computer won't send printing jobs to your printer.

These are issues most people have encountered at some point. What if these common problems just fixed themselves?

That's the idea behind Microsoft's Fix it Center. It automatically diagnoses and fixes many common problems. You can download individual tools for specific problems. Or, get them all in one package. You'll have them when you need them.

Microsoft's Fix it Center can sniff out the cause of most issues. It can find and remove conflicting startup programs and fix hard drive errors. It can adjust settings to provide optimal batter life.

The package version will also anticipate Windows updates. This can help eliminate potential conflicts before they happen.

Cost: Free
System: Windows XP, Vista and 7
