Windows Repair Toolbox
Find and fix common Windows problems

Windows Repair Toolbox is a small portable tool which makes it easier to find and fix many common Windows problems.

The program doesn't contain any real troubleshooting technology itself. Instead, it acts as a simple front end for various third-party utilities and Windows commands.

The Tools tab, for example, provides buttons for HWMonitor, HWiNFO, CPU-Z, GPU-Z, Ninite, PatchMyPC, Snappy Driver, Autoruns, Process Explorer, FixWin, Recuva, Geek Uninstaller, chkdsk, sfc, Regedit and more.

Windows Repair Toolbox doesn't come bundled with any of these, fortunately. Instead, when you click something like Recuva, the program goes online, downloads the correct portable edition for your operating system, then launches it for you.

The Malware Removal tab offers a little more functionality. As well as providing one-click access to many popular malware hunters - Emsisoft, Malwarebytes, Kaspersky, Microsoft, RKill, RogueKiller, AdwCleaner, Hitman Pro, more - you're able to run unattended fixes using multiple programs.

Other malware-related options include a selection of update links (Windows, Java, Flash, Adobe Reader), and a few cleanup and repair tools (CCleaner, WinRepairAIO).

A "Final Tests" tab provides speedy to some common system checks. Is Flash installed, or Java? Does your system open various common file types: Office, MP3, PDF, more? What's in your HOSTS file? Are your webcam and microphone working? The answers may be just a click or two away.

You're able to save notes relating to your actions, which might be useful if you regularly run the program on other people's systems, and there's even an option to email an activity log to your Gmail address.

What's new in 3.0.1.8 (see changelog for more)?

- Improved high-DPI support
- When a new version of Windows Repair Toolbox is available the program is now able to auto-update while keeping user customizations. It will no longer ask you to go to the website to download the new version.

Verdict:

Windows Repair Toolbox offers lots of options, but relies on you understanding exactly what each one can do. Is it best to use Complete Internet Repair, or Windows Repair All-In-One, for instance? Dial-A-Fix, or FixWin? Zoek, or Farbar Recovery Scan Tool? Ummm...

If you're an experienced troubleshooter then the program could make your PC-fixing life a little easier, though, and as Windows Repair Toolbox is portable it's entirely safe to try. (Apart from the chance of applying the wrong fix, anyway.)

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.
