After having run your software, my PC won't boot up into Win7. I had to use the install disk to do a startup repair to get the PC to work at all, but now it will only bootup in safe mode--unsatisfactory!! What do I do to get my PC to boot back into Win7 in full mode?

Please let me know what to do. I downloaded and ran the program from Saturdays Give Away for the Day offer.

Roger G Darnell,

open a command prompt ... run msconfig.exe, then click the boot tab, then uncheck safe boot, and click ok ... select restart and it should go back to windows ...

question: what happened that you had to use the install disk? How far did you get into the process?

Reply   |   Comment by Bob  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Roger G Darnell, Hi Roger, sounds like you quit the step 1 portion of the test? If so it will not remove the boot. You can remove manually though as others did the same thing. If you go to Start and then put msconfig in the search/run box it will bring up some tabs. Click on the boot and highlight the likenewpc entry. Click remove and then apply and you will be clean. We will be addressing this issue as three folks have seen this happen. We have instructions not to exit step one but I think we can do some things to fix this issue. If this is not the issue please email us at likenewpcrepair@gmail.com

Bob Wing, I was able to uncheck the safe mode box in msconfig.exe and my PC booted into Win7 just fine.
Regarding the test, I only clicked on the restart box when the program indicated it was ready, so if I quit the step 1 portion of the test I was unaware of doing so. Also, in the msconfig box, I didn't see anything relating to Likenewpc in/on any of the tabs. So, should I re-run the program? Also, you asked about using the Win7 install disk after clicking on the reboot button. I did that because the PC would not boot to the C drive at all.

LikeNEWPC is the 1st service to do a thorough job for machines that are in critical condition.

If you have a machine that just has a cold then you could use a band-aid. LikeNEWPC is not a band-aid ... Its open heart surgery ...

Unaperson, We run 12 different scanners and tools to thoroughly repair all problems. It takes longer but the end result is worth the time. We designed it so you only have to be by the disabled or badly infected computer for a short period of time. Start it, do a couple quick tasks, then let it run and clean..... The quick scanners by themselves are ineffective in many ways. We use redundancy to maximize results. It may take longer but its worth it.

Sitani, we cannot.... we have found that sometimes the security threats disable one scanner or another. In addition the threats change boot, security settings, internet settings etc. that most anti-virus or malware programs do not even address. Also, some of the threats actually disable your scanners and wont let them launch. Our process actually does many different things to actually peel back the layers of obstruction and allow removal of these threats. Its way more complex than it appears. You wont fully understand the power until you have a system that wont boot, has blue/black screens or cannot run programs. It works!

Sitani, Actually the process is what makes it effective. Also, keep in mind this was developed for those that cannot help themselves technically. To be honest one of the biggest motivators to create this is when I was watching a news report on seniors being bilked for thousands of dollars for computer repairs. I wanted to help stop that!!!! We basically automated known fixes in a step by step process and added advanced recovery methods to thoroughly resolve most problems. The thought was to automate computer repairs to the extent anyone can help themselves and not be taken advantage of.

Ran this through the evening - came down this morning, and said ready for stage 2 repairs. Restarted computer as directed, and now cannot get it to boot up at all! Message says "Interactive logon process initialisation has failed. Please consult the event log for more details". How do I get past this? You website doesn't appear to have any tech support option at all - particularly worrying as I'm in the UK...

Mike, try to boot it up on failsafe state (F8 or F12 etc.), see if you can restore from windows backup from there.

Mike,
"Ran this through the evening - came down this morning, and said ready for stage 2 repairs. Restarted computer as directed"
I also did that and the boot order was "start with CD/DVD"
And the same screens as yesterday; connect to the internet . . .
Afterthat I removed the CD and booted Windows XP: safe mode.
No mention of a reportlog. I found a folder on the C-drive, just a few files.
Restart again and again safe boot.

Yesterday during virusscan I saw some red letters about a virus in WinRAR: maybe yes, maybe no. I should like to read what software was repaired and in what files there were found virusses.

I think that later on I will adapt the boot.ini, as I noticed the time stamp: it was changed.

Mike,

1. What version Windows and service pack is the problem machine?

2. Did you download to the problem machine and run LikeNEWPC or did you create a CD/USB boot device to boot the problem machine?

Reply   |   Comment by Bob  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Bob,

Thanks for the response. It's a Windows 7 (64-bit) machine, with SP1. I originally put onto USB - but that was on the machine that had already been running incredibly slowly or even hanging (e.g. for Windows Update). Ironically, I've just bought a new Windows 10 machine, and was getting ready to transfer most of the data off from the old one, so that I could use it as a 'bare bones' alternative for the family.

I already tried going for a system restore, but it's been "restoring files" for over 5 hours, now...

Thanks. Have responded to your(?) later message, but will email later today (or from work, tomorrow) as you requested. I only had Microsoft Security Essentials active on the machine; but regularly scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, too.

Mike.

Reply   |   Comment by Mike  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Mike, So I need to make sure ...

The sick machine is a Windows 7 (64bit), correct?

You burned a LikeNEWPC CD on another machine and booted the Windows 7 (64bit) machine with the CD, correct?

Then it ran and you got to the end and clicked in "Restart" and it booted but did not get into safemode and popped the error, correct?

Reply   |   Comment by Bob  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Bob,

Yes, the computer in question is a 64-bit Windows 7 PC (service pack 1). However, I downloaded LikeNewPC onto a USB on that computer, not another - it wasn't quite dead, but VERY slow at times, and sometimes failing to do things like update Windows altogether.

Stage 1 repairs appeared to work without problems. The stage 2 restart allowed it to boot into safe mode, as requested - but after a time, I got the error message. To make things clearer, I've done a (very shaky) video of what I get, and will send you a link for that by email.

Hope this is OK.

Mike.

I downloaded the program and chose to make a bootable USB. The process was extremely easy, especially using Rufus. A boot folder has been installed, and in there are 3 more folders, en-US, fonts, and img. A second folder is installed called Sources. My question is where do I get the image to go in the img folder. I didn't see any instructions for making an image, and really don't know how to. The whole program comes to only 374mb on my new LikeNEWPC drive. I thought the 'fixit' files would be downloaded to the USB drive. What did I miss? Can someone help? Thanks.

I have old computer winXP unbootable and both CD drive and USB interface
not working - because i can not open BIOS to change boot order, and of course not connect to internet.
Is it possible to take out the hard drive from this computer thenconnect hard drive with winXP as external drive to working computer, and then somehow make this hard drive bootable and repair winXP on it, with LikeNEW PC and how to do that??

Compatibility mode has the program asking every 30 seconds if my internet is on and threatening to shut down my computer, assuming this isn't the normal behavior. Plus, every time it reaches "pcp_createusb.exe" it quits and I have to reopen the program to restart the compatibility process again. This has happened 4 times.

If I understand correctly, although this software is for non- working computers running Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 with 10 to come later, it will only boot on XP computers? Exactly how is it supposed to repair the other non-booting operating systems?

As an aside, did any GAOTD member actually fix a computer using this software?

Reply   |   Comment by Matt  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Matt, No you can create a boot disk or usb and it will boot up any computer. Even 8 & 10 when it is available. We boot in our own environment, that is why we are able to perform low level repairs and can recover data that a non booting system will not allow. We repair boot, missing files, hard disk errors, windows repair etc. in step 1. It does not boot into your OS until step 2.

Reply   |   Comment by larry  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

larry, once its burned boot the problem machine but make sure it can boot from CD by setting the BIOS up properly if its not already. If it is setup and accessing the CD and still not booting the image may be bad due to bad CD or the burner itself. Let us know if this helps. If not some more details may help.

larry,
did your PC boot from HD or cd?
During the boot of the PC, often you can choose how to boot(Esc/F11/F7 .. ..): choose CD/DVD
Or in the BIOS you can change the boot-order.

Don't know if Bob is still reading. Each time I click on "Run Now", I see a bar that shows downloading. Then the window closes and I see a pop up that says support coming for XP, etc. "Run Later" makes a desktop shortcut that takes you to the web page where you download "LikeNewPC" which behaves in the same way as the download from GOTD.

Did anything actually happen? I looked at Task Manager and don't see anything in applications or processes that look like it. Is maybe my security software blocking it? and that's why it shuts down so quickly (or appears to).

I don't know what to expect - what I should expect to see? Thank you.

Sheila, Not sure your question was answered... Maybe I am not seeing something? If you are trying to run xp from the run now option it will not. The screen before the run now says if your using XP you must create a cd/usb boot disk. The reason is we cannot control the xp reboot as that feature was not in XP..... I think we need to ensure folks see that. You are one of three or four with the same observance. I think we will change the download to automatically say cannot run this feature for xp.

I like the idea behind this program but I do have a minor concern. When going to the Developer's website my BitDefender Antivirus Plus 2016 Anti-Malware filter blocks the page. This may be a false-positive but is something I think should be addressed as it will turn a lot of potential customers away if they believe the site contains malware.

That being said, I will definitely be keeping an eye on this product as it sounds like it will save me a bit of time when resurrecting family and friends systems from various crashes.

Update: BitDefender also blocks the download to USB as the site has been flagged for being infected with malware. This is a major concern that needs to be addressed by the developer as most security conscious users will not turn off their AV software to download a file.

SilverDragonSys, This is concerning as we are digitally signed and on all major sites "white lists" They should not block us. Some anti-virus/malware programs block all exe files. My hope is that its that and you can just disable prior to download. Until we get a little more household recognition we will have to continually go back to those suppliers to let them know we mean no harm.

Bob Wing, I have downloaded hundreds of exe files with BitDefender running and had no problems, so it is not the exe file itself that is causing the red flag from my AV software. As I stated in my OP, the problem is that BitDefender has flagged your site as containing malware. Hopefully after you contact them and they re-review your site the flag will be lifted. I would really like to try this program of yours but will hold off for awhile until this security issue is addressed and resolved.

This software seems like it's a brilliant idea but it is in the end, USELESS.
I tried on my Windows 10 PC it says "Runs on XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10 coming soon" So I thought I would try on the other computers in my house (Those running 8, 8.1, 7, and Vista.) NONE OF THEM WORKED!

Bob Wing,
I could easily download the whole package.
But on the laptop your Win7 PE SE did not have that drivers.
Also not another driver of a USB-Ethernet (Eminent EM1010 Rev.2)
These driver I could download from the net with another PC and could also installed it. After that LikeNEWPC could go to work.
Could you also build a LikeNEWPC on a WinXP PE?
Then you can use the drivers on that machine.
Also some PC cannot work with Win7, because of the obsolete drivers for Win7.

Before I even try to run this, I would like to know if it deletes the history and cookies from all browsers. Most "fix" programs do that as default with no notice. Those two things should be user optional or not done at all since they can be done in each browser if wanted or needed.

I'm pretty sure we do not clear any of that. We do have some 3rd party cleaners and 1 or more of them may clear that data. But, Let me double check and get back to you. Can u save off that data before you start if i find out differently?

I am a security analyst and I work for IBM. I tried this when it was in its beta. It fixed up 2 laptops and 1 desktop for me. Yes it takes a while to run but it worked. It would have taken me many more hrs if I tried to fix these computers manually. One desktop it did not work on but the hard drive was toast in it. These were not computers for work they were computers friends had that they had just put aside and did not use anymore. I used it on my wife's laptop that was slow, otherwise it was still working. It found and fixed a bunch of problems and the laptop ran way faster. This program is fantastic for older computers that you just want to get going again for your kids or really anything. I know the developer and these guys are legit. This is not some scam or anything like that at all. They really do want to help. They are the real deal.

just how does one make this run? I downloaded the setup and read the "read me" and ran the setup, which since I have Win XP, required me to "install" LikeNEWPC on a USB stick (which is fine by me). So I ran the install and 2 folders ("BOOT" and "SOURCES") were created in my USB as were 4 unknown files my Win XP can't read, and an icon file and an "autorun" file, which opened in Notepad containing misc info, such as "created by Rufus 2.0.639). But..there is no icon on my Desktop and clicking ANY of the folders or files on my USB. How does this work? Is something supposed to happen? There is no indication as to what to do next.

Currently we have XP, Vista and Win7 with 8 and 10 coming soon. Be advised you MUST use the boot cd/usb for XP computers.

Do you accept Paypal for payments. I will gladly pay $20.00 if I can have back my XP computer with all my artwork I lost after last back up not to mention use of PC itself. Blue screen, said Windows not installed...etc.even though it is..

Question1: Can I download this on Windows 7 Professional to use on my XP? (Have to dig my XP out of storage next week)

Question 2: If PC says it does not have Windows how will this install on XP or does the Disc bypass that and use something else?

Question 3: Someone said you can only use the disc on XP...what do I do if my Windows 7 goes crazy?

Question 4: Can this be used on an external drive hooked up to Windows 7...says it lost driver but installed???

Question 5: Do I have to make CD immediately after installing or can I wait a bit?

Reply   |   Comment by unruly  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

unruly, Here are your answers:

1) Yes just create a boot cd/usb and it will boot up and run on all operating systems we support.
2) The disk uses its own boot environment and does not need your os until the second step of our process.
3) The disk can be used on all OS.... The download now and run on this computer is the exe and can be run on all os except XP. XP must be ran with boot usb/cd due to restrictions.
4) It is not designed to fix attached peripherals at this time.
5) You can wait as long as you wish to download and install.

Paypal is our payment gateway.

Tomcat you should have put "If it ain't broke you CAN'T fix it" as your first commandment. As to "During the process of repairing your computer we may atour descression remove potentially unwanted programs, cookies, boot paths, browser settings, program data, installations, information, temporary files and data. Acceptance of this EULA authorizes us to do so. It is understood that any items or programs removed will be reinstalled by you the end user" How do you re-insrall give aways of the day or software legally licences but you can't find the keys and serial numbers. With Ashampoo you can always downloas the serial numbers if not the software, they may swll you (for a few dollars) a DVD withe the software you have licences for. a few reair and cleaners list the registry entries to be deleted and let you opt out. Join the minority club. If the opted outs really a problem run again with ;ess opt outs if the programme lets you, until the cure happens.

Sounds like a great product for that laptop I stashed in my closet last year.
It is in such bad shape that I used it as an excuse to purchase a new one.

Now I have a need for a PC in my hobby shop, to store plans and watch how-to videos while I grind or turn wrenches.
Not the kind of place I feel comfortable using my new laptop.

I'm going to give this utility a try and see if I can't get that old laptop back into service!!!

By the way, this software was recommended by a friend of mine who's been repairing PC's for years.
I will post a follow-up post after I give it a spin.

The payment is honer system, hmmm, it reminds me of iobit in the past.
They would back door your computer with some Trojans and then they will ask you to pay to be removed. It happen to me, it was even impossible to remove their software, I had to do clean install again to remove their hijacking business model. If you allow anyone to monkey around your settings, you are asking for future trouble. If there is hardware failure, no software can ever fix it.
I'm not saying anything negative about LikeNewPC, but I will stay away from such claims as they are bogus. Change the MB and or memory and you do not need constant "repairs".

Moriss, Actually its because of programs like that, turbo and fix me this and that, that we decided to make payment optional. The junkware that has been distributed in the past has really clouded the market. Thats why we are trying to position ourselves as the Only company that fixes disabled, badly infected and slow windows computers. We needed to get away from the junk. Our claim is legitimate, I personally have never seen a program that does what we can do. Try it!!! I think you may see the value.

My problem is that I have a lot of programs installed from off-the-beaten-path websites, containing files that programs like today's giveaway do not recognize. Perceiving that such files are "corrupted", or in a location where they "shouldn't" be, they get deleted. Then my programs don't work anymore. Interesting, but no thanks.

This looks like a winner, however since it doesn't work on Win 8 or Win 10, I'll not get to test it out. Will you let me know when it's available for these OS machines? I would greatly appreciate it. Also, if I could load it to a portable drive and run it on the computer I left at my job, I could test it. (That machine runs Win XP but I can't get to it before Monday.)

And, for those of you that still don't trust these guys, you can always have the same thing done at one of the computer repair shops who run these services regularly for a measly $150 - $200, and get no guarantee that the problem won't return. At least, here the software stays around and you can re-run it anytime things start to clog up again.

Reply   |   Comment by Moriss  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

Bob,

Will this software be made available here again as a giveaway when the version for Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 is released? I was quite disappointed to learn that this version won't run on my Win 8.1 laptop, which is my main workhorse and starting to slow down due to a number of issues I'm sure your software would resolve.

I must say that I'm skeptical about "do-everything" software "cleaners" that have shown in the past to really foul up computers with a wide diversity of apps and programs installed. Monkeying around with DLLs and the like can really mess things up in a delicate OS like Windows (regardless of the version). This is especially true when Microsoft routinely deploys updates that sometimes total hundreds of megabytes in the course of just one month, which makes it understandable why it would take some time to develop a software such as yours which will perform "as advertised."

I look forward to the release of versions that are compatible with more recent releases of Windows, and wish to thank you in advance for same.

Apparently, many commenters cannot read and understand English! Read the User Ageement, and if you don't like it, don't download it. If your computer works well enough to make a complete backup before running the program, you probably don't need to run it. If your computer has serious problems, you run the program from a CD or USB, and if it fixed your computer problems, you pay. Seems simple enough to me.
Perhaps I am not paranoid enough?
