Is the old version still installed on your computer and working?

No!
Software technician: Byron, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

I know this is going to sound counter-intuitive but re-install the old version.

Once done download the free version of Revo Uninstaller from here:

http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html

When you use it to uninstall the old version of Fix-It, select Advanced mode

to make sure it removes all traces of the program.

Then install the new version.

I don't have the old software. Why does the new software disk state for Windows XP,Vista,7 or 8?
Software technician: Byron, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

It's possible the disk does work with Windows 10. The issue is that there are leftover remnants of the

old version that are keeping the program from installing.

When I bought the Software the box clearly states for use with windows 10. Best-By will not except a return on open software, what next?
Software technician: Byron, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

Give what you describe, they may make an exception for such a blatant discrepancy. In any event, it's probably a

Windows registry entry that's stopping the installation. Download CCleaner from here:

http://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

click the green Download button in the upper right of the page.

This program has a lot of utilities but you're only interested in the Registry cleaner option

which you'll see from the vertical menu on the left when you run the program.

Select Registry from the menu on the left then Scan for Issues and fix all the issues it finds.

Make sure to scan for issues twice.

Then try to install the new version.

Tell if I've got this right. You had Windows 7 and you had Fix-it installed. You upgraded the machine to

Windows 10 and Fix-it either quit working or disappeared after you upgraded the machine so you got the new version and now you're having this problem. Does that sound about right so far?

Ask Your Own Software Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
that is right. But I removed version 7. I have a annual contract with the Geek Squad. They just completed a system clean-up and tried to install this software. No luck!
On the box there is a 90 Day money back Guarantee. I would like to used this option since this clearly is not working
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The upgrade was complete by the Geek-Squad. In all the system is working fine. I think the wrong version is in the wrong Box.
Software technician: Byron, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

This is JustAnswer.com, a paid support site. Avanquest is the company that develops and sells Fix-It so

you would need to contact them concerning this matter.

You can contact JustAnswer customer service at 1.***-***-**** for a refund of their charges.

Thanks Byron I think this is my only option at this point. I am very disappointed I liked version 7 and used it for many years. I hope Fix-It fines a solution so I my try it again.
Software technician: Byron, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

How long ago did you upgrade to Windows10?

Ask Your Own Software Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Some time in the beginning of 2016.
Software technician: Byron, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

If it's been that long there would be no way to roll back to Windows 7, remove Fix-it, then upgrade again

to Windows 10. Hopefully Avanquest will send you a version that you'll be able to install. Good luck.
