FIX freezes and won't respond RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows One Care
    Ran program to find and fix problems
    Reported 'problems found- click on FIX to repair"
    Click on Fix and after it ask for confirmation it enters a new screen but stops right there and nbever runs the fix.
    This has never worked past this fix situatiuon
    Trying to get help is even a worse problem.
    This is an impossible situation that Microsoft has made for any help.
    The program looks very good but will not complete the FIX it has identified.
    Any Suggestions

  • I assume that it also doesn't report what problem has been identified. Unfortunately, there have been a handful of reports regarding the Fix button not working - it attempts to execute a script, based on what the found problem is - however, the best I can do is advise you to contact support.

  • Try performing these steps:
    1) Turn on the printer and make sure it is connected to your PC
    2) Click the "Fix" option in OneCare

  • Hi Stephen
    I had the same problem a month ago and got a response from Microsoft but now I cannot find it, now that I have some time to try to “FIX” the problem.  How do you find “Fixes” that Microsoft has given someone? 

    I am one of the many that are having the same problem with the "Fix" freezing.  If Microsoft cannot "FIX" my problem I will go with Symantec’s at the end of the month and cancel my subscription with MS.

    By the way, how can I remove backups from my external hard disk to free up some space?

    Last chance, Steve Hollen

  • I suspect that this is what support advised you to try:

    Fix It doesn't work - try the database reset tool - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=4bc2594b-95ab-4235-b5b8-41656b38480f&DisplayLang=en


    I'm not sure what you mean about finding the "Fixes" given to someone. If you mean what OneCare has found and wants to fix via the button, I suspect that it may be located in the support logs - open OneCare, click Change Settings, logging tab, create a Support Log. However, I've never encountered a problem requiring a Fix, so I haven't actually seen this in the report that displays when you view the logs. If you mean the information sent by support, I can't see that, but with a case number, I can get someone to investigate and follow-up.


    To remove backups, see this post: http://forums.microsoft.com/WindowsOneCare/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1698096&SiteID=2
