File Extension Fixer
Repair damaged file associations

File Extension Fixer is a tiny portable tool which can help repair some common Windows issues.

If you've been infected by a virus, for instance, you might find you can't run some executable or other file types any more. File Extension Fixer allows you to repair any or all of these (EXE, MSI, REG, BAT, CMD, COM, VBS) in just a few clicks.

Malware may also try to prevent you running key system tools. File Extension Fixer can fix this in some cases, and has links to enable and run REGEDIT, Task Manager, System Restore and MSCONFIG.

This isn't going to help much if your system is still infected, of course. Ideally you should remove any malware first, and only run File Extension Fixer as a final cleanup step. But if that's not possible, the program also has buttons to download and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and/ or Ultra Virus Killer.

Please note, the download button links to the file ExeFixer.com. If this won't run because of your file association issues, download ExeFixer.exe by clicking here, or follow these instructions to manually repair the problem.

Verdict:

It doesn't do very much, but File Extension is a hassle-free PC repair kit, a timesaver for experts yet also easy enough for beginners to use.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
