Microsoft launches PC Fix it Center

Bookmark and Share

Microsoft has launched the beta version of Fix it Center, a utility which promises to solve common problems and issues with your PC.

It’s based on similar efforts that Windows users may be familiar with if they’ve used Windows 7, or Microsoft’s online troubleshooting system before.

The program is easy to install and run, with a setup wizard to help guide the less computer confident through the process.

It can left to automatically deal with any problems itself, or notify the user and request permission first.

It’s a free download, targeted mainly at home computer users, and it doesn’t just cover the latest version of Windows, but also Vista and XP (albeit XP Service Pack 3).

The user can also create an online Fix it account, which stores the hardware and software profiles of multiple machines, so if you’ve got a home or small business network, you can manage all your PCs from the one account.

If you’d like to give it a whirl for yourself, then head on over to: http://fixitcenter.support.microsoft.com
