One-click solutions such as Microsoft Fix-It tools offer simple fixes for issues that you may experience while using a PC. The core benefit of these tools is that you don't need any computing experience to use them.
Anvisoft released PC Plus recently, a collection of one-click tools to fix common PC issues.
You should not have any issues installing the program. It does not include adware or any other potentially unwanted offers.
The program displays the five groups desktop icon, network issue, system, software and game on start. Several issues that it can repair are listed underneath each group.
The network issue group lists IE not responding, script error or IE browser crashed for example. The limit appears to be four words which means that the listed issue may not always reveal all the information you may need to decide whether it is the one you are experiencing.
While you can click on a group listed on the main page to display all fixes it offers, you can use the search at the top as well to find specific solutions. It is usually the better option unless you know exactly where to find a fix.
Each group divides topics into sub-groups that you can navigate at the top. All main groups are listed in a sidebar as well so that you can switch between those groups without having to go back to the home page.
Each issue is listed with a thumbnail screenshot, a name, short description, the number of views it has received, and a fix now button.
While it may be tempting to click on fix right away, you need to know that fixes are applied without creation of a system restore point or backup.
This means that you cannot undo the changes after the program applied the fix. I suggest you create a system restore point before you run any of the fixes the program offers.
The fixes are automated for the most part. The ones I tried display a prompt on the screen before they are applied so that you have an option to prevent it from being applied after all.
It seems to work well for what it offers. Don't expect a huge number of fixes though, there are about 30 right now which is not that much if you consider that it is a 20 Megabyte download.
It is likely however that new fixes will be added to the program over time. Here is the full list supported right now:
While it may be useful to some users, those who experience one of the issues that it fixes, it may not provide enough solutions and fixes to make an installation worthwhile.
One essential feature that it is missing currently is backup which Anvisoft should add as soon as possible to the program.
It is also important to note that some operations are also available as Fix-Its from Microsoft.
