How good is it ? How long should it run ? Ive ran it before, but this time its been running over 24 hours. Ironicly, my computer is running great ! Should I just let the scan keep going ? All it says is " Detecting issues ". THANKS

Microsoft Fix It tools usually only have a 1-2 minute scan and search for common windows issues. if its been going for 24 hours its probably not doing anything.

What was the original problem that led you to use a "Fix It" scan?
