The Portable Fix It Troubleshooters Suite from Microsoft
« on: April 01, 2012, 03:47:32 PM »
Something useful yet again posted to The Windows Club.
This is for people who may need to provide support for or fix the occasional system problem with one or several PCs.
You may have heard of or used the online Fix It ATS (Automated Troubleshooting Solutions) from Microsoft.
Well, now you can download them and install them to run independently on any computer (i.e., without being connected to the Internet).
This is the now "portable" set of 26 ATS Fixes - the Portable Fix It Troubleshooters Suite.
Download Portable Fix It Troubleshooters Suite from Microsoft

The download includes 26 automated fixes:
    Fix power consumption problems and extend the laptop battery life
    Fix Windows Media Player video, and other media or library issues

I have it on a Flash drive but it still wanted to connect to the internet when I tried to fix a network problem on an XP computer and because it couldn't it didn't do anything.
