"Great product. Works as stated."

December 06, 2009  |  By jlutgring

 |  Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 9.0.2.3

Pros

Keeps my system lean and mean. I try a lot of programs. some I keep, others I uninstall. Whenever I uninstall a product, I run Fix-it to clean up my registry and hard disk.

Cons

Requires a fair amount resources so I don't allow it to run in the background all the time. I only run it when I have a specific need to use it.

Summary

Avanquest states clearly "Windows Vista 32 bit" in the system requirements. If you buy software without looking at the system requirements, you deserve what you get. Also Avanquest has a 60-Day money back guarantee if you buy from them. Again, a little research on your part will confirm this so don't spread lies about a perfectly good product when you are too darn lazy to google it before you buy it.

"Solid Product"

October 07, 2009  |  By EdwardThatch

 |  Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 9.0.2.3

Pros

Easy to use and has been reliable for three years. Moved from Norton (Symatics) and CA that were becoming unreliable in protection and ease of use. I have not experienced any crash issues with XP, or any bad effects of having this installed.

Cons

Since release 7, I have never had an issue with Fix-it Utilities.

Summary

I highly recommend the product although I have not tested with Vista or enhanced operating systems, but for XP, it seems to be rock solid.

 |  Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 9.0.2.3

Pros

Flashy box, well packaged

Cons

This program will crash your system, it will tell you to close MSN messenger, and you will get error messages ie: not responding, windows will freeze. The return policy for this purchased item from Future Shop is nill.

Summary

Bad experience, windows freeze up, msn crashed.

"program misrepresented - borders on dishonesty"

March 14, 2009  |  By TCDESALVO

 |  Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 9.0.2.3

Pros

works fine with 32 bit system. many options which work very well

Cons

should clearly state "does not work with 64 bit system." Instead says "works with Vista." Buyer beware. If it does not say "Vista Certified" it will not work with a 64 bit system.

Summary

First bought fix-it version 5 a bunch of years ago. Fantastic program. Kept registry clean and running well. Great virus protection, disk maintenance, fault isolation, program exceeded expectations. Expected Version 9 to be light years ahead, a continuation of a phenominal program. Version 9 has all of the tricks found in 5 plus a new expanded line of toys. Works great on two of my P4s. Recently bought a laptop, and in anticipation of the Windows Systems to come bought the 64 bit operating system. No where on the packaging does it say that fix-it 9 professional does not work with Vista 64. It states "Works with Windows XP and Vista." Confused as to why it would not work with my computer, I went to the Avanquest site to research. An hour in to my search I found the answer to my search. "Works with Windows XP and Vista" means...... 32 bit system. "Vista Certified" means works with 64 bit system. This to me borders on fraud. Packaging should clearly state what operating systems it works with. It should not be the customers responsibility to figure it out on their own prior to purchase. If it were a car, I could look under the hood to see what "engine" is there. This information was more "in code" than stated. Shame on Avanquest.

Updated on Mar 15, 2009

Never installed old version of fix-it on new computer. Racked my brain trying to get new version work with 64 bit system. Finally went to Avanquest site, typed in 64 bit system in their search block. Redirected to an "identify system" page. Which explained difference between "Works with Windows Vista" and "Vista Certified." Clearly states Fix-It does not work with 64 bit system. The only thing I can think of is your laptop may be a bit older or Dell has figured a way to run a 64 bit system simutaneously with 32, not an either or. In either case, you lucked out, I didn't. Version 9 works fine on my two P4s with XP 32 bit. Not only did the restart, did a complete remove and reinstall. No Joy. Which is why I went to their site to research the program. I would spend the gas money to return it if wasn't such a great program for the 32 bit system. Hopefully they update the system so it works with newer machines. Very disappointed.

"The only registry fixer u and your system can rely on."

January 16, 2009  |  By peternator79

 |  Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 9.0.2.3

Pros

The registry fixer is No.1, maximum safety, maximum cleaning, i am using it for 3 years, never had problems with system after repeated cleaning. I trust only this professional software. Other utilities are cool too.

Cons

The only bad thing I detected is that if FIxIT was installed on some kind of tuned or modified Windows, for example Windows XP by eXPerience, after restart, system is destroyed, cant repair, cant get to windows again, reinstall needed.

Summary

You and your system will be satisfied,
I recommend to everybody, to every system.

"Forget Norton/McAfee/Etc. This is the one to use"

November 11, 2008  |  By scotch7

 |  Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 9.0.2.3

Pros

Clean. Small. Doesn't bog down the system. Registry cleaner is best of breed as far as I have seen.

Cons

Anti-virus updates are sometimes every day. This can confuse some users. Fortunately, an update is less than a minute on a good broadband connection. The product was sold to a company who does a good job of maintaining it.

Summary

I am a professional small business IT consultant. I make TONS of money removing expired Norton, McAfee and other anti-virus programs. These tools are so badly engineered that when they get old, they eat up more and more and give less or nothing. Not an issue with Fixit.
