If you are experiencing issues with your PC, Kapersky System Checker may help you resolve the issue. It is not designed to fix anything; but, is designed to give you a lead on what the problem could be… I look at this as another tool in the tech toolbox that may help you troubleshoot a range of problems such as: malware, missing updates, poorly configured Windows or application settings, a shortage of hard drive space, and more. Simply download and run. No install is necessary.

Been noticing TweakPower on many of the freeware download sites.

Didn’t really get a chance to mess around with this open source program (called WinBolt); however, thought I would post it for the other techs out there.
