Any system utilities / diagnostics out there........

Q: Any system utilities / diagnostics out there........

Im looking for a good system utility, freeware or having to buy it.

I just want something that minimizes system process's and keeps the computer running at the best performance possible. Whether by cleaning out the computer periodically or stopping certain services.

I also want to see if there is any diagnostics programs out there for hard drive, memory, and any other hardware/software i would to diagnose in the future!

For memory i use MemTest currently and I have nothing else for all other hardware/software diagnostics.

Preferred Solution: Any system utilities / diagnostics out there........

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello all,               I have tried to run Lenovo's System Diagnostics and all I see is a message in red telling me that it is running and to wait. Well I waited for an hour and I suspect it was not running at all.I never had to wait this long. Why is this and it is not acceptable?

A:System Diagnostics

Hi rjordan393 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Either that the LSC is not ok or it has encountered issue during the test that was not able to verify. 
Try to uninstall it from programs and features under control panel and download a fresh updated copy from the support site and see if that would work. 
 
Likewise for differential comparison you can also use similar test software such as this and this . 
Update us how things go.

Hello,   I have an Envy 15t laptop, and the original battery seems to not be functioning properly (the initial charge is quite low and the laptop does not last a long time).  I bought a new battery to remedy this issue, and I was hoping to do a calibration test.  While doing this, I ran into a strange problem.   For some reason, when I try to access the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (by pressing ESC on bootup, followed by F2), it looks different now than it did before (I don't think it's because of the new battery before though, since I still had the old menu even with the new battery at some point).  The old menu used to be more of a GUI style, something like Figure 9 in the following link: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03467259 Now though, under HP PC Hardware Diagnostics, it doesn't look like a GUI (it's more text based), and I only have the following options: Memory Test, Hard Drive Check, Language, Exit.  I no longer see a "Components" option, and I certainly cannot access the Battery option from within Components (since the Components option is missing).  Any ideas about why this is the case?  Thank you.

Is there a diagnostic program that can tell me what is going on inside my notebook? I am used to the one that came with my MSI machine that tells you CPU/GPU temp, fan revs etc. I suspect fan in this notebook is not working or is it not fitted with a fan? Also is anyone aware if win10 update can be turned off. I have totally had it well and truly that every update totally trashes the machine each and every time the download installs. I am sick of losing my 3rd party software and my data. This laptop will go into orbit on the end of my boot if it doesn't stop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have no control over when it decides to update and I can be right in the middle of things and down it goes never to restart again until factory reset.

I bought this because MSI like to play funny buggers with that machine. It has now gone back for 3 warranty repairs and now is back there again as they damaged it last time they had it and who knows when I'll see that machine again!

A:about system utilities

I've just done a quick search of the program.

The 30 day trail is exactly that, a 30 day trail. You can not continue to use it after the 30 days have expired.

Are you going to buy 1 copy of the program and sell it to your colleagues? Cause that's not entirely legal in general cases, although I haven't read their licence and agreement.

So last night I was using my laptop to watch a movie from my hot tub. I guess I managed to get a few drops of water on the keyboard when I went to change the volume because afterwords some of the keyboard buttons didn't work. I left it upside down with a paper towl on the keyboard and when I woke up the keyboard worked fine, but the computer asked if i wanted to do a diagnostic. I figured why not and ran it. It said yes.

I run a Windows 10 Home (Ver. 1703, OS Build 15063.483) on a ThinkPad T450s (under a 4-year warranty that'll expire on July 20 2019). I have recently run a System Diagnostics for my system and found issues regarding two storage tests (the tests being for Targeted Read Test & SMART Short Shelf Test for Storage 'device' WDC WD10JPVX-08JC3T5 - 931.51 GBs; the report is attached for reference). I was wondering if I should be concerned over those failed tests. I would like to know as the end results report state that my computer is 100% functional, even though it doesn't display the one storage 'device' with the two failed tests. Any help/suggestion/advice on the case would be appreciated!

I know something is still wrong! I have defragmented and I have run Disk Cleanup, Ad-Aware, Spybot, and AVG - I also have Spyware Guard installed and use the Windows Firewall. (I DO run and update my utilities religiously) However, my computer is still running/loading slowly. At times, I feel as if something is running because I see the little light flickering - and this is when I am just reading or on Yahoo. When I bring up the Task Manager, I see nothing unusual under "Processes" or "Applications" - what can it be? Could it be an update that I'm not aware of, like Windows? Should I run a HJT log? Help! (P.S. I connect to the Internet through a Comcast cable connection. I use Firefox for my browser, and have WOT and Finjan as additional warning systems.

I bought, downloaded and installed WinZip System Utilities Suite a few days before last Christmas.
The program promptly crashed my graphics driver, rendering the computer unusable. Fortunately my computer man was able to fix the problem quickly (by ?manually uninstalling? the old driver and then installing a new one), albeit at a cost three times that of the program.
I wrote to WinZip via their web help service and asked for their comments. I half-expected them to deny any possibility of their program?s having caused the problem, although a more honourable response would have been to seek to provide a remedy with an assurance that the problem could not recur - but in the event I?ve had no reply at all.
I?d be grateful for any helpful comments Tech Forum could be provide. The program?s list of features looks impressive, but I?m not game to run it again.

what is the best PC System Utilities Software for windows 7, like for defrag, cleaning registry......

A:PC System Utilities Software

You will likely get a bunch of opinions.

The most common opinion would probably be to use only Windows built-in tools. They work well.

You'll hear good things about CCleaner, a free download that is very widely recommended. It has multiple components including a general cleaner and a registry cleaner.
Defrag tools are largely personal preference, based on the degree of your obsessiveness rather than measurable differences in performance.

Likewise, registry cleaners are generally frowned on. But if you can't help yourself and just HAVE TO clean the registry, use CCleaner and accept its offer to backup before you run the cleaner.

You probably won't hear many good comments about the packaged retail "all-in-one" utility suites you have to pay for at Best Buy, Newegg, etc.

There's one or two tools that are actively disliked because they are difficult to get rid of and like to "phone home" against your wishes. Can't remember the names of them.

Check in event viewer by typing eventvwr in search. Look in windows logs, application tab.

You are looking for critical errors (they have red in the left column) that have app hang, app crash, or anything relating to the problem.

When you find them pplease note the event ID and source code and tell us what they are.

My hard drive failed and I've taken it out to prevent further damage to the data. I want to keep using my computer with a Linux live USB while I wait for a new drive. When I turn on the laptop, I can press escape to bring up the startup menu and F9 is listed as boot device options and F10 is listed as BIOS. If I choose any option, no matter which one, the computer opens System Diagnostics. If i press F9 or F10 during boot, I see the text pop up acknowledging the action, but still get System Diagnostics. I bought this computer new from Amazon, it has never been configured by any kind of IT department, it is simply locking me out of the BIOS and boot order for unknown reasons. I do not have anything the computer came with, so I'd need a link to an ISO if your suggestion involves a disk. Ideally, there is some inane secret combination of button pushing and holding that will either allow me to change the boot order or boot directly from USB. Thanks in advance for your help.

A:PC System Utilities Software Review

Hi George "PC Booster/Tune Up" programs are part of the worst programs you can install on a system. When it comes to messing up your system (Windows), these are as worst as malware. They are completely worthless and useless to use. The worst is that they'll often take action on your system without you knowing, nor authorizing it, which could lead to your system being altered in a way you don't want it to be or even worst, a "broke" system. Every feature they provide, you can either do it natively under Windows, do it via another standalone executable (which is way easier and safer to use) or they aren't providing something you need. Here's a few examples:Cleaning temporary files: TFC (standalone executable), CCleaner (installed), Cleanmgr.exe (in-built);Managing start-up entries: Autoruns (standalone executable), CCleaner (installed), Task Manager and Registry (in-built);Driver Updater: Not needed, all you need is to go on your manufacturer website so you'll be sure to get the right, official, working drivers for your computer or hardware;Registry Cleaner/Defragger: Completely useless and also dangerous;Disk Defragging: Disk Defrag (in-built), O&O Disk Defrag (installed), Defraggler (installed);Powerful uninstaller: Not needed, only needed when you have to make sure a program is completely uninstalled.

The Reliability and Performance Monitor found in Vista keeps a heap of data sets for response times, processes, configuration data, diagnostics, debug logs, registry keys and performance counters. This tool will help you diagnose windows errors, slow performance or anything else you would like it to help you track down.

1. Open the Start-Menu and search for Performance Monitor.
2. In the performance monitor there is a folder called "Data Collector Sets" found in the left open it and click "System"
3. Here you will find some default diagnostic tools to run on your vista machine, just right-click the name and click start, scroll down to the Reports folder to view your results.

You can also add your own customised monitors under the Data Collector sets folder for a more complete view of the systems performance handling, Just remember too many sets might slow your system down and vista allready runs a Reliability Monitor every hour.

This tool will point anyone in the right direction to solve issues they are having with vista or the hardware, Include the report in a support request and it can help diagnose the problem very quickly. Its proberly the most usefull feature found in vista.

It's not immediately clear what this is for. It isn't just for upgrading to a new o/s .

It has lots of other useful functions.

It consists of Partition Manager (personal edition ), and the Virtualization manager.

Even if you already have the partition manager, it is worth the download for the Virtualization manager.
That includes the Boot Corrector to resolve most common boot problems,
and P2P Adjust Recover the OS startup ability after system migration to a different hardware platform.

Also, unusually for GOTD downloads, Paragon normally let you keep the installer , so as long as you keep a copy of the product key - you can reinstall the product as often as you like.

Follow down from the top of that site, reading carefully.

You may see something listed as "System Utilities" you could just take the tick out of that. However, its not always as obvious as that.

The only one I would leave ticked is your Anti-Virus - it should be pretty obvious by its name.

That should rectify it.

Come back to me and let me know?

Hi, I was hoping someone could tell me how I can print or copy then paste the list of start up programs in my system configuration utilities?
I have a lot of things in there that are not needed but I need to compare it to a start up list. It would be much easier if I could print it.
Thanks

Hello, I'm the process of trying to de-brick this EliteBook 8640p that was working just yesterday, but I decided it was time for a re-format.  I went into the BIOS settings and noticed an option called 'Safe Erase'... and I decided to perform it. After the process was complete, understandably there was no OS found. The next step (I thought) was to add bootable media (DVD-ROM or Flash Drive, I tried both) to install a new OS. After tweaking the 'Legacy Boot' settings by putting USB Flash Drive at the top, I rebooted -- and it didn't load from the removable media. I tried checking the BIOS settings again, but every time I press ESC, F9, etc. during the POST, it redirects me to 'system diagnostics', which has been extremely unhelpful since all it offers me is a few diagnostic scans (they all pass, by the way). I'm not ever able to get back to the BIOS settings. This would be day 2 of my adventure, yesterday I tried updating/reinstalling the BIOS using a Flash Drive, but the utilities provided by HP all crashed when they were about to create the BIOS update drive. I tried moving basically every .bin file I could find (there isn't a single Phoneix Bios file that I could find) onto a freshly-formatted (FAT32, 4MB block size, 2 GB capacity) Flash Drive. Booting normally with the flash drive in keeps bringing me back to the 'system diagnostics' screen, over and over again. Something quite odd happens when I try initiating the BIOS recovery routine with Win + B -- when ...

Any thoughts on which is better on keeping Windows XP running smoothly, Tuneup Utilities vs Norton Utilities? Is one better than the other or do both have specific utilities that are superior? Can both be run on the same machine or is that looking for complications? Thanks.
 

A:Tuneup Utilities vs Norton Utilities

Norton [Symantec] programs have a bad reputation for causing problems. I would go with "TU," of which I have an old version that has worked fine and caused no complications.

My Hp probook 4540s used to ave advanced diagnostics but now only has hp diagnostics with the option of hard drive check and memory check and nothing else.

A:HP diagnostics

JA8231 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Wish I had good news for you, but I don't ... The UEFI diagnostics you refer to are linked to the Win8.1 page for your PC, but NOT to the Win10 page: http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=5229456&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4158 This could be a simple oversight by HP, in which you could then download and install the diagnostics from the Win8.1 page.  Or, it could more likely be that those do not work in Win10 -- in which you're then out of luck. My suggestion is to try downloading and install them anyway, they might just work.Good Luck
