What is Disk Heal?
Disk Heal is a useful tool that tweaks your PC and fixes common computer problems. Initially it was a program which fixed disk problems that occur after a virus has been removed with a few additional features like changing the icon of a drive. Currently it performs various other tweaks as well.
On what Operating Systems does Disk Heal function on?
The entire program was written and tested on Windows XP but based on user feedback and testing, it functions on the following Operating Systems:
Windows NT, 2000, XP, Vista* or 7*.
I fix the folder options/task manager/registry editor inaccessibility but once I restart the computer I still cannot access these features?
First check if you have administrator privileges and the restrictions weren’t made on purpose. If so your virus is still active, and it keeps recreating the restriction, so use an Anti Virus Program to eradicate the virus and retry the procedure.
I try restoring a folder/file I lost because of a virus and it says the path is invalid?
Make sure that the path has been typed correctly. If so, the file/folder may have been deleted instead of hidden.
I am unable to assign an icon to one of my drives, what do I do?
You are probably using the old version of Disk Heal. Download the latest version.
The tweaks do not work. Why?
Some anti virus or anti spyware programs prevent Disk Heal from performing its functions as a security measure. To make full use of Disk Heal permission should be granted by the anti spyware\Anti Virus programs.
Some anti virus \ anti spyware programs flag Disk Heal as Risk Ware. Why?
Disk Heal makes changes to the registry, As a security measure these programs flag Disk Heal as Riskware as changes made to the registry could produce adverse results as well. Disk Heal guarantees though that changes made by Disk Heal are purely beneficial.
I forgot the Security Tweaks entry password. What do I do?
If you forget the password you can never recover it again. The only option would be to format the drive to use the ‘Security Tweaks’ page again.
When I launch Disk Heal, I get a message saying that the TABCTL32 or COMDLG32 component is missing, what do I do?
Tabctl32.ocx and comdlg32.ocx are required components to run Disk Heal, this is generally installed into the system directory, however a security feature in your computer may prevent installation of the file. You can install it manually by downloading it from here(tabctl32.ocx, comdlg32.ocx) and copying it to your system directory (default: “C:/windows/system32”), Re-launch the application.
What compatibility issues may I run into when using Disk Heal on Windows Vista or 7?
Some of the tweaks may not work with Windows Vista/7. A future build is currently being developed for full Vista compatibility. If the application does not run entirely, do the following:
– Right click the Disk Heal EXE file and click ‘Properties’.
– Go to the ‘Compatibility’ tab.
– Check ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and choose ‘Windows XP (Service Pack 2)’
