I have downloaded a trial version of this program, which as certain parts disabled for the trial period. It seems to be a reasonable set-up, but before I make a decision on a possible purchase,so that I can use all the facilities, I was wondering if anyone uses this or a similar program. If so, can you give me your views etc.

Basically, I am looking for a programme that will give my computer a medical, and inform and advice me of any problems that my computer may have.The Ultimate Troubleshooter v2.30 seems or may offer this.

pc pitstop is fine and generally gives good info but sometimes it can be wrong.

if you have xp then you have built in troubleshooting.

click start/control panel/administrative tools/event viewer and click the system and application tabs to view errors that have taken place.you may be given a link to MS for futher help and a possiable fix for your error.

also try clicking start/run type msinfo32 click ok and you will be given information about your system.click "hardware resourses/conflicts sharing" to get info on hardware conflicts.

try clicking start/run type dxdiag and click ok to get information on direct x graphics problems.click the display and sound tabs and you acn run tests to check for faults.click troublshooting/more to get more info.

try clicking start/help and support/fixing a problem for more help.also try clicking "tools" from the "pick a task" list here for more help.

ps.for futher info on your hardware and software try click here for a good diagnostic

hi spuds.had a look at the other thread.im no expert sorry.

as you have AV software,spyware blaster and adaware,spybot all installed and all updated,scanned etc im sure you should be ok in this respect.

try right clicking the taskbar/task manager and click the performance tab.

is there much cpu or memory usage? also have a look at the processes tab for anything out of the ordaniry,look at what is using the cpu time and report back.

try running cwshredder from click here

Try the same link huggy71 gave and scroll down a bit to official downloads and to start up (zip) this finds if any other programs are running that msconfig cannot find. CONTENTS: A simple tool that lists all and every auto starting program on your system. You might be surprised what it finds, this is way better than Msconfig. Commonly used to troubleshoot malfunctioning systems, trojan/viral infections, new spyware/malware breed and the likes.
Currently at version: 1.52.1
