Microsoft Fix It - What Is It?

Microsoft issues patches and fixes for it's software on a pretty regular basis. Most times, these will come in the form of software patches, released via Windows Updates. However, for important issues that don't have an available update yet, Microsoft will sometimes issue a temporary solution in the form of a "Fix It" - a small utility designed to accomplish a single task just double-clicking and running the file. There are also Fix It patches available to fix common issues, not necessarily security-related. These would be a simpler solution than following a series of steps, or entering some commands at the dreaded command line - which a lot of home users really don't want to get involved in. If you happen to look up a solution to a problem on Microsoft's web site, you will often find a Fix It file available as an alternative to following printed steps.
