    FixMeStick - StartMeStick is a gadget that is easy to take along for use on PC's and laptops. It is an external virus-removal device. The FixMeStick is a plug-in USB tool that scans your computer for viruses before your computer boots into its normal operating system. The FixMeStick automatically updates itself and removes the infections that conventional antivirus software often can't detect.

    I bought this thinking that I could use it to repair a faulty Windows PC. Unfortunately, that was not possible. It does boot up your PC, but you cannot access the hard drives. Basically it lets you have a temporary PC to surf the net or do a few very basic things. No saving your work, no printing, not much else. If you need to look something up on a friend's PC, it works, but no real work to speak of.

    This Fix me stick combo did not work on either my Windows Lenovo laptop or my Mac mini desktop. Total waste of money. On the Mac Mini my wireless key board & wireless mouse got disabled. I was able to work with the Fix Me Stick with a cabled mouse, but it's been years since I've had a wired Apple keyboard - so I was stuck. On my Windows Lenovo - it did not work automatically and banner message said I had to make System changes to enable it. Best Buy put the Windows version on sale. Best Buy should not try to sell it at all.
