Editors' Review

+

It offers a simple way to help users troubleshoot system issues, but the program is best used by experienced-to-expert users. System Repair Engineer's operation is intuitive. That's important since the primary Help file opens an online Simplified Chinese manual. Fortunately, individual functions include short help pop-ups in English.

After a short introduction, users can start tests by clicking on one of the three function buttons. Boot Items opens an eight-tab dialog that lists programs and services loaded at system start-up. Columns are easily sorted with a click. Deleting, adding, or editing start-up items is easily accomplished. The System Repair function presents simple lists of problem file associations, Windows shell options, Browser add-ons, Host file items, and Winsock providers. The application doesn't explain programs or recommend fixes, though experienced users will easily use the information to fix problems. An Automatic Repair function offers only two options fix known Windows Registry issues or delete all policies. A final function performs a scan of select system areas and stores found information in a text file. Experienced users can take the information under advisement to fix problems.

System Repair Engineer includes an extension function to add tests to the program. This freeware testing utility is easy-to-use, gives helpful information, and performs minor system repair very well. It is easily recommended for those comfortable editing the Windows Registry and System Policy settings.

"Excellent... Chinese Stuff"

August 02, 2010  |  By FVDP

 |  Version: System Repair Engineer (SREng) 2.5.16

Pros

Doesn't need to be installed, so you can run it from an USB Key.
Very detailed results

Cons

Help file (extensive!) only in Chinese
No help pop-ups when I'd have appreciated them...

Summary

I liked the very detailed results on a lot of system issues, but contrary to giselamb, I didn't take the risk to run most of the proposed "repairs", because I was not sure of what was exactly going on, even as a (retired) IT person who definitely doesn't read Chinese.. But I'll follow AVKiller's advice about running it regularly and compare the subsequent logs.
I believe this software would really deserve its five stars if there were proper help files (for us Caucasians) or a bit more explanations about he modules and/or proposed fixes. For example, I was proposed to "fix" a series of standard file associations that seem to work perfectly on my system.
And, you cnet guys, there is a new version: 2.8.2.1321 ("Date Published: Feb. 9, 2010" ;-)

"Its Written by a Microsoft Recognized MVP! "

July 29, 2007  |  By shadowwar

 |  Version: System Repair Engineer (SREng) 2.5.16

Pros

Invaluble software to restore damage done by viruses. Its free software.. If you ever get infected with Malware and use this software you will know how invaluable it is. Many spyware forums link to this software. Thus you get a lot of first time reviews.

Cons

Not for the total beginner. Takes some understanding of windows to know what to fix.

"It is so funny how the own developers of a software turnout customers"

July 20, 2007  |  By Fknews

 |  Version: System Repair Engineer (SREng) 2.5.16

Pros

I was going to download and install this software, when I saw the reviews it seemed good, but then I went deeper to find out about the reviewers and it is so funny the 3 ones that gave this program 5 stars is their first review ever... What does that tell me? That they work for that company and/or are the developers. Maybe if there were no reviews I would have download it and installed it

Cons

What a Turn Off.... Companies like that don't let their products for success. Now, even if the program is great, I will not download it nor try it. If they try to cheat on a simple thing imagine how it will be on any other thing.
