Windows: The Basics of Using Microsoft Fix it

I have been using this Microsoft Fix it tool with some success this past week. In some instances, there is a problem in which you can't install the software after uninstalling it or there is transform error.  Normally, we would hack the registry or use a 3rd party registry cleanup tool to try to resolve the issue.

1.  Download Microsoft Fix it tool and use the Advanced Download option.
