  • Hello Louis,

    You are very welcome.  Behind automated Microsoft Fix its are a team of people glad to hear we are making life simpler and enjoyable for you.


  • I can get my decktop to open and restore is not working and Im going crezy

  • Espero que a Microsoft tenha resolvido o problema, pois eu sou principiante em computação. Obrigado.


  • I just tried the Fix It routine, but it stopped before completing the fix.  The only message was that the error had not been fixed. Other than that, my choices were to go to this blog or to provide some feedback via email. I like the idea of the Fix It logic, but little help is offered when the fix fails.


  • Good.  I am happy to note such solutions are available. Ar. Thena

  • i have no way to know if it got fixed or not

  • Doesn't this delete the manual channel configurations, too?  I have to manually map over 50 clear QAM channels to guide data (which slows down the more channels you do, and gets worse over time as this DB begins to get corrupted)

    How about instead of deleting the DB eHome fixes it for real? :(

  • The "fix it" button was easy, just not sure if the error is fixed.

  • I like this because i would rather have you fix then have me mess it up more

  • This is the first time I used [fix it] and it seems to leave me out there without knowing more of the needed steps to correct the problem.  I don't know yet if the problem is corrected or not.  I'm always one for more detailed step by step instructions instead of click a few buttons and walk down an unknown path to nowhere.  

  • This auto fix should be  a standard tool for Vista, which has  many faults and defects and is very unstable.  I have Vista certified machine running Vista Ultimate that came from the OEM with ultimate pre-installed that is so unreliable I kept my older XP machine that I had intended to replace.  

  • As per other post, I've applied the fix it button but there is no report/splash screen etc to say the fix has been successful.

    In defence of Vista Ultimate, I don't find it particularly unstable - there are a few things that could be better/different but that's true with most things in life - anyone ever own a car that never had anything wrong with it?

    Keep up the good work!
