    Default Microsoft adds repair shop to Windows (Beta)

    Reminder: It is not advisable to run beta software on a production computer.

    Microsoft is testing a new "Fix it Center"--an online and PC-based tool for helping users solve their Windows technical problems.

    While a fair amount of diagnostics are built into Windows 7, the free Fix it Center aims to expand on these and also bring similar capabilities to Windows XP and Windows Vista.

    The service, which went into beta on Thursday, consists of both a Windows download and an online service.

    "Fix it Center finds and fixes many common PC and device problems automatically," Microsoft said on its Web site. "It also helps prevent new problems by proactively checking for known issues and installing updates. Fix it Center helps to consolidate the many steps of diagnosing and repairing a problem into an automated tool that does the work for you."

    Edit Note: Instead of the c|net download link in the quoted article, I prefer direct download from Microsoft, available from the "Try it Now" button at Microsoft Fix it Center Online .
