PC Tools

Every computer user will encounter from time to time errors in their computer it might be due to some computer virus or damaged documents.

For us and for some other IT Technician out there will practically use to Re Format the window drive. But reformatting a computer often leads to loose some of your important programs and re installing will take you much effort specially if you don’t have a back up of this program or just somebody install a program to you without giving you the copy of the installer.

I always believe on my friend Jay who is an IT Support Specialist principle with regards to computer troubleshooting that reformatting a computer should be your last option until you have already exerted all other ways and means to fixed your computer.

I have listed some of PC Tools that I found in the web which are free to download and are user friendly but of course I'm not an IT to personally recommend this software and advise you to seek guidance to some of your IT friends. But I think there is a little or no risk at all installing them in your computer.  I have put some description on them to let you decide if it’s worth downloading. 

Most of software listed are related to antivirus and removal of malware and other similar computer threats.
  • ClamWin Free - Used by more than 600,000 users worldwide on a daily basis. With an easy installer and open source code. Absolutely free of charge

  • RunScanner  - A freeware windows system utility to scan your system for all running programs, autostart locations, drivers, services and hijack points.

    You can use Runscanner to detect changes and mis configurations in your system caused by spyware, virus or human errors.

  •    SUPERAntiSpyware

    Free Edition is a reliable software designed to detect and remove thousands of Spyware, Adware and Malwareitems, suchs as: Trojans, KeyLoggers, Dialers, Hi-Jackers, and Worms.

  • Combofix  - Allows the manual removal of spyware infections . It 's a specialized effective cleaning tool, which is useful compared to other malware and spyware removers.
    After Combofix finished, a report will be created. You can use this report to search and remove infections which are not automatically removed.

  •  Recuva (pronounced "recover") is a new file recovery tool that will unerase files that you have mistakenly deleted from your computer. Recuva is fast, small and will even run from a USB drive. Like all other Piriform products, Recuva is free for both commercial and personal use.

Hope this is something useful for those who is trying to troubleshoot their computer.
