Fix common PC problems with this utility.

SmartPCFixer is a utility that can help you fix various problems that your PC can have, such as being slow or displaying error messages. It can also help you increase the performance of your computer, even if it isn't experiencing any problems at the moment.

Scan Your Computer and Fix Various Errors Quickly

The goal of SmartPCFixer is to help you correct issues with your operating system that may lead to problems, like crashes and error messages. It includes a wide variety of tools that let you improve the performance of your system and fix common issues.

One of them is a registry cleaner that checks the Windows registry for errors, such as duplicate entries or those belonging to programs that you no longer have. Other tools included in SmartPCFixer are a disk defragmenter which can help improve the overall performance of your hard drive, an uninstaller which shows you all programs you currently have and helps you uninstall those that you don't need, as well as a file shredder, which enables you to securely delete files in a way that makes them unrecoverable.

Another useful component is the disk cleaner, which scans your computer for files that are unnecessary and taking up disk space. Examples include browser cache files and temporary files generated by programs that aren't needed anymore.

SmartPCFixer includes a backup function too. This lets you make backups of the Windows registry, browser favorites and specific folders.

Finally, the program includes tools that can help correct a variety of minor problems that can make your computer slow or running inefficiently. For example, it can fix problems with file associations and Start menu items that link to programs that no longer exist on your hard drive.

Decent System Utility but Not the Best

Overall, SmartPCFixer is a decent system repair utility, but definitely isn't the best in its category. The program is a bit dated and many of the functions it offers are actually already offered by the Windows operating system. For example, Windows includes a disk defragmenter, backup functions and a disk cleanup tool that allows you to instantly get rid of unneeded files to free up disk space. This can make SmartPCFixer a bit redundant.

SmartPCFixer is offered as a free trial. In order to unlock the full functionality of the program, you'll need to purchase the complete edition.

Generally speaking, this program does its job well. However, there are many other system repair and diagnostic utilities that are more thorough and offer better value for the money.

Pros

  • Scans various system areas for potential problems
  • Can help correct issues like errors and slow performance
  • Includes backup functions

Cons

  • Free trial version doesn't offer access to all program features
  • Many functions already offered by Windows operating system
