Advanced Uninstaller can help uninstall and remove unwanted programs and folders quickly and easily. While Standard Uninstall works as the Windows built-in Add/Remove Programs function, this utility helps to scan Windows registry and hard drive for any possible installation leftovers.

Its features include: remove a program not listed in Windows built-in Add/Remove Programs; find leftovers and traces of a programme and remove them completely; Batch Uninstall - Uninstall several applications easily with just one click; Log Manager - view changes made by Advanced Uninstaller; Restore - every time a store point image is automatically set for restoration.

This new Microsoft service provides a set of online and offline tools to fix common PC problems, automatically. Currently in open public beta, Fix It, an extension of the year-old “Microsoft’s Fix it Solution Center”, not only finds and fixes many common PC and device problems, but also helps prevent new problems by proactively checking for known issues and installing updates. The ‘fixing’ process is automated without technical jargon and unlike a help file or online forum posts that tell you what to do, this application simply does it for you. Fix It is very much akin to Windows 7 “Action Center”, as it is built on top of it. Do note that Fix It is in Beta, could function erratically. The 437 KB Fix IT, an application for Windows, from Win XP and upwards, including Windows server installations, can be downloaded at http://fixitcenter.support.microsoft.com/Portal%20.
