Microsoft is now offering what they call ‘Fix it’ to correct problems for users of Windows XP and Vista. The system works by offering the user the option to download a fix and by following what Microsoft claims is a easy wizard to correct the problem. On their web site Microsoft states that:

Have you ever come across a Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article or been presented with a Windows Error Reporting (WER) solution and asked yourself, why can’t Microsoft just fix this for me? Today KB articles and WER solutions provide you with a list of steps that can be followed to resolve your issue. However, tomorrow looks much different and we hope it helps you resolve any issues you have with our products faster and easier.

Our team’s purpose is to automate the steps in Microsoft KB articles and Windows Error Reporting (WER) solutions so you can click a button and have the issue resolved.

I haven’t tried this as of yet so I can not comment whether this actually works or not. If you have tried the ‘Fix it’ procedures, let us know your results.

If this does in fact work this could be very helpful for those who are have issues in understanding some of the procedures to fix issues on their system.

Comments welcome.
