FixWin is a free utility from thewindowsclub (http://www.thewindowsclub.com) team that requires just over 500KB of space, runs without installation, and quickly fixes 50 different Windows glitches. You would other wise need to meddle with the Registry to fix many of these problems. For example, if your Recycle Bin icon is missing, you can fix it with a single click.

The fixes have been catergorised into 5 categories: Windows Explorer, Internet & Connectivity, Windows Media, System Tools, and Additional Fixes. Each of the problems is presented with a brief but clear description of the problem. To correct the problem just click on the Fix button alongside the problem description.

FixWin can also scan your machine for corrupted system files. Just to be on the cautious side, FixWin lets your create a System Restore point before making any changes.

On the lighter side:

One condition that might prevent you from running FixWin is the Requirements – if you go by FixWin page on PC World. As you can see from the screenshot below, taken from the PC World (http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fid,82272-order,3/description.html) website, it appears that you need ‘Ramesh Kumar’ to run the app. Ramesh Kumar is the author of the tool and requiring him to be present every time you want to run the application isn’t feasible. http://www.dq.winsila.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_wink.gif
