Well as they say, the right tool for the right job. I've used a few PC Booster/Tune Up programs in my day with very minimal problems. None close to being called worse than malware, but I always read the manual and made sure to understand all that it would do before running it (or else, found another one that was more open about what it was doing). For those that don't do that, or understand computer...yeah, they can be quite dangerous.
And yeah, any program that advertises it will "solve all your problems" is a red flag. Back in the day, Advanced SystemCare was pretty awesome...used it on many different computers for a quick clean & tweak. Don't know how it performs today, but Snapfiles.com reports that it installs 3rd party junk. So... ;-/
If you think that BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) issues can be solved by opening a program and clicking on a "Fix" button, then I'm sorry to tell you but, you're wrong.
You're absolutely right. But there are tools (Who Crashed) that really help with diagnosing such problems. I'm looking for other advanced Tech tools...like Who Crashed. So if you have any more goodies, I'm all ears. ;-)
Good articles, good info. I'm diggin Process Hacker. :-)
And thanks Lucky123 for DrWeb LiveDisk...I'm gonna check that out.
Ok so HJT is old and outdated, which is why it barely works on Win7, but it did help out a few times. From what I can see, it looks like Farbar Recovery Scan Tool is the closest equivalent, correct?
