    "Review of Fix-It: Latest and greatest version 12"

    October 19, 2012  |   By rwils51

    Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 10.3.3.4

    Pros

    Since version 10 is long gone and I have a 5 year history with this utility my review is on the latest version of Avanquest Fix-it Professional version 12.
    I never had a problem with version 7 through 11.

    Fix-It is a well organized Utility program. A complete package of programs for fixing and repairing operating and system errors. A decent AV and Anti-Maleware program and a fairly priced set of utilities.

    Cons

    Assumes to make decisions for what is best for you. Not unlike most programs on the market.
    Memory Optimizer. Just don't use it.
    Startup Commander does not work on my version of XP3 and Vista2 worked ok on Win 7.
    Stll buggy on some installs and updated patch caused some issues.

    Summary

    My opinion is Fix-it 12 isn't for everyone. I have used this program for 5 years with a new version every year and for the most part the program has done a good job repairing system issues. It really is a very complete set of utilities. Speaking from experience no utility program is perfect.
    Version 12 can be tasking at times and frustrating for the novice user. The program assumes the default settings are best for every user that isn't always the case. I had to tweak several settings to make it behave the way I wanted it to.
    Does a good job on registry repairs, defraging, program optimizing,file cleaning, and backing up files.

    In my opinion, I think for users that just want a plug and play utility this program may not be for you. For people who like to get under the hood and fix stuff this is a good program.

    "Could sometimes repair a computer"

    August 6, 2012  |   By narnia

    Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 10.3.3.4

    Pros

    Could make your computer runs like new

    Cons

    Very complicated to use, because you should not let the software tell you what to do. It's very easy to destroy registerkeys and files your computer needs. If you know what you're doing this software are OK, in other case - beware!

    Summary

    If you use this kind of software in a wrong way, you have to do a full reinstall of your computer.

    "Fix it could not fix anything, what a rip off"

    June 11, 2012  |   By bje117

    Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 10.3.3.4

    Pros

    Got this to see if I could recover photos that got deleted off an SD card. I went on like and found a program that worked, but wanted $39 so opted for this version for $30 at Walmart, figuring I could return it if it did not work... it did not work. Only photos it could recover were the ones in the trash bin and i could get those with a right click on my own...

    Cons

    Deletes your security system without asking and most of what it does is stuff you can do on your own by going to internet options and clicking tools. I can defragment and delete unused files on my own and use free software to protect against viruses. All I wanted was a cheap alternative to retrieve deleted files and it did not work for that at all...

    Summary

    When it did not work and took forever to run a scan, I checked on line to see if it was as wonderful as it claimed to be. after reading all the negative comments, I deleted it off the computer. I think those five star reviews must come from customers, but this was a total rip off!

    "i really did not encounter problems mentioned here"

    May 11, 2012  |   By calm19

    Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 10.3.3.4

    Pros

    very wide diagnostic and fixing tools.before fixing it describes the problem and you CAN CHOOSE NOT TO FIX IT[for those who complain about messing or destroying their drives]. it is also asks you if you want to back up so you can restore so it is SAFE.

    Cons

    the installation took an about 20 min including a reboot:too long. can operate only one tool at a time,not like others.

    Summary

    the most comprehensive tool i have met.

    April 26, 2012  |   By bountyhunter1

    Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 10.3.3.4

    Pros

    NONE, wasted days and wasted nights.

    Cons

    Had nto restore system, because this junk totally meesed up everything.

    Summary

    Spent a total of 8 hours trying to get this program to run and all it did was messed up everything. Now I have to send it to the company and try to get my money back.
    This program is not worth the time and money.

    "Best I've ever tried or used"

    February 23, 2012  |   By foune

    Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 10.3.3.4

    Pros

    Has kept my computer squeaky clean for over a year since I've learned how to use it properly.Does everything it says plus. It stops everything in it's tracks if set to run at proper intervals.I trust this company with the health of my computers.Great support & deals. Would not use anything but this program. No I'm not affiliated or work for them. just a very satisfied customer.

    Cons

    None other than this program is a bit complex and takes some time to learn and set up properly but well worth the effort. Still learning.

    "appeared to erase my entire c drive."

    February 22, 2012  |   By unabnats

    Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 10.3.3.4

    Pros

    installed. Luckily, ununstalled. Which fixed what appeared to be a total fail

    Cons

    the app seemed to erase entire hard drive, OS, programs, files and all. But control panel showed this not to be true, thank god.

    Uninstall reversed the problem.

    Summary

    A $40 virus.

    "I FEEL STUPID"

    November 27, 2011  |   By jterrozas

    Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 10.3.3.4

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    I wish I would have checked the reviews of this piece of crap. I had issues with my system booting. I found this in a Best Box store and should have used my phone to check reviews. The One and Two stars are correct. I bought it for the RESCUE disk that did nothing for me. It didnt even have a basic CHKDSK utility. Once I went through the complications of getting things repaired I loaded it as a preventative maintenance. It is so full of bugs and creates so much havoc. My system SLOWED incredibly. Avoid it. Dont buy it. I wish I could tell the world.

    Summary

    FIX-IT you suck.

    "Glad I Read The Reviews"

    May 23, 2011  |   By Basuto9

    Version: Fix-it Utilities Professional 10.3.3.4

    Pros

    I have seen nothing here that qualifies as a "Pro".

    Cons

    Just read all the reviews for the Cons!

    Summary

    I have not purchased nor tried this program. However, today PricePlunge is selling this "Fix-It Utilities 10 Professional" for one penny - yes, 1¢. I believe, after reading these reviews, I now understand why, and think I'll pass on even the 1¢ price - I don't want this on my computer.
