What's new in this version:

  • Major changes to both "Reset Registry Permissions" and "Reset File Permissions". I found out that if you where on a non English system these two repairs simply wouldn't run and thus not change any permissions. This was because it was settings the permissions based on the names such as "Administrators" or "Everyone". On non English systems these are spelled differently and so would fail. I have changed these two repairs to set it by SID now instead of name. Example: Instead of "Administrators" it will use "S-1-5-32-544" (Which is the Windows Default SID for Administrators). These two repairs will now work on non English systems. As an added bonus, the two repairs run much faster now. The reason why is when I was using the names instead of the SID it had to go and lookup the SID of the names. Now that I am using the SID from the start it no longer has to do that lookup, thus making it run nearly twice as fast or better
  • Fixed bug where if you opened the repair window, then closed it and then went back to it the repairs wouldn't work. This is because the program though it was in close down mode from closing the repair window.
  • Program now shows how many repairs are selected above the repair list. Example: "Repair Options (Selected: 10 of 35)"
  • The repair wmi was done in 3 steps to simply give a progress of what it is doing. Instead I have combined the 3 steps into 1.
  • Unhide none system files now gives a count of how many files it unhides. Also made a new status window to show when the unhide repair is running.
  • The Beta Repairs button will now be disabled when your running repairs.
  • The program now lists all fixed drives in the system for the Reset File Permissions and Unhide Non System Files repairs. Before it would only do the drive that Windows is on, now you can have it do other fixed drives as well. By default only the Windows drive is selected.
  • Log window now shows when a repair is being ran under the system account and the current user account.
  • The cmd.exe windows now show what repair it is doing in the title bar.
  • The program now checks if it is being run from a network path. If it is it lets the user know that due to Windows network security most repairs will fail and to please run the program locally on the system.
