TIP: Click Here to Repair/Restore Missing Windows Files
Dial-a-fix tackles issues with SSL/Cryptography, Windows Update, Microsoft Installer, and many miscellaneous shell problems. Example: If you get a blank screen when trying to visit Windows Update, simply checkmark the main Windows Update checkmark (in box #3) and click GO. Most issues can be resolved in a similar manner, if not by combinations of fixes. There is also a 'check all' button which is useful as a last ditch effort, or when you don't understand where a particular problem is coming from.
Most of the fixes Dial-a-fix uses are found in various Microsoft Knowledgebase articles, and articles written by Microsoft MVPs. When you see a list of DLLs that need to be registered using REGSVR32.EXE, chances are they are already listed in Dial-a-fix. Mouseover a checkbox or button to obtain more information about what will be executed, or what DLLs will be registered.
In a nutshell, Dial-a-fix: stops services, installs selected software (if packages are available -- see below), registers DLLs, restarts services, and removes several rogue policies. Dial-a-fix will not cause any issues if your system is already working properly.Dial-a-fix is a fix collection.
