Getting the system up and running again after being hit by a virus is quite a challenge, especially when taking into account that many Windows utilities may stop working after the disinfection.
That's the purpose of Re-Enable, a software solution that can help you solve some of the problems caused by malware, offering a very simple interface to guide you through the whole process.
Although it's designed to be easy to use, there's no help manual, so the only way to find more info on its tools is to search the Internet or visit the official website of the developer.
The app helps you repair or re-enable Windows tools such as Regedit, Cmd Console, Run, Folder Options, System Restore, Control Panel, Task Scheduler, Task Manager, Context Menu, My Computer, Search and MS-Config, most of them automatically disabled by viruses to block you from removing the infected files.
In addition, Re-Enable comes with a dedicated safe mode restore for Windows XP, Vista and 7, but also with separate tools to edit hosts, reset files and folders attributes, scan and delete Autorun.inf, repair the desktop, un-hide the drives and repair Explorer.exe startup problems.
Windows 7 users must keep in mind that they have to run the app as administrator in order to be able to apply the changes.
If we were to note a good thing about the app, we would definitely go for the interface, which is impressively user friendly and helps you fix most of the damage straight from a single window. At the opposite pole, there's the lack of a help file, so users won't be able to find more info on the app's features.
All in all, judging by the way it performs Re-Enable can easily be a keeper. It manages to handle a variety of issues and restore the computer to a working state on the fly.
