Error fix is a dismal failure of a registry cleaning program.
The interface is clean enough offering the options to Scan(perform a registry
scan), Backup (in case something goes wrong or you want to undo a change), as well
as an options menu where you can set various program options. Error Fix also
offers you the ability to edit which programs run when your machine starts. I
started this little application and ran a system scan which took about 5 minutes
to complete and found about seventy problems in my registry.
It then set to the task of finding solutions which took another few minutes as
the program decided how best to fix the problems it found. Then the problems
began, when I clicked the 'fix all errors' button it told me my trial had
already expired even though I had just downloaded the software. I
attempted to email their 'support' email and was quickly told (by my isps' mail
server) 'mailbox is full' so contacting support if you have a problem isn't
something that is a viable option.
While I'm sure this company is eager to take your money, it doesn't appear they
actually want you to try their products. I wasted 15 minutes of my life
installing, testing and then uninstalling their software, that's not counting
the time it took me to email their nonexistent support. In short, all I came
away from this program with was the sense I had been robbed of 15 minutes of my
life and quite frankly I want my 15 minutes back.
