Lightweight and portable application that enables users to restore their file and folder attributes with a minimal amount of effort

editor's review





If you ever had problems with malware, then you surely know that most of these items change your file attributes to system or hidden, and they make it impossible for you to change them back to the default.

zReset is a small-sized software application that can be used in order to help you exactly with the problem described above, seeing it enables you to reset the attributes of any kind of files.

The upper hand of a portable app

You are not required to go through the installation process, as this product is portable. This means that the Windows registry is not going to be updated without your prior approval.

Another important aspect is that you can take zReset anywhere with you, by simply moving the program files to a USB thumb drive and run it on any PC from there.

Clear-cut GUI and reset file attributes with a click of the button

The interface can only be described as plain and simple, as it encloses all its option in the main window. As a result, it can be used by virtually anybody, regardless of their previous experience with computers. Nonetheless, it is not particularly easy on the eyes.

All you have to do in order to start the process is select the infected directory with the help of a folder browser. A new pop-up window lets you know if the process was successful or not and the total number of directories and files that were fixed.

Bottom line

To conclude, zReset is a pretty simple, yet efficient piece of software when it comes to resetting file attributes. The interface is suitable to all users and all jobs are finalized in a timely manner. The computer’s performance is not going to be affected in any way and we did not detect any crashes or hangs in our tests.
