We talked about Belarc advisor sometime back, a tool that generates a detailed report of your PC. Here’s another tool, probably better than Belarc advisor, that can diagnose PC and benchmark it on various parameters. Known as Fresh Diagnose, this windows diagnostics tool has a better user interface and the report generated by it contains all the minute details of your computer.
Go to the official website to download the software. Before downloading you are required to give your name and email ID so that they can send you a registration key. That’s it. It’s a freeware so no other costs.
After getting the email, click on the link and download the software on your PC. Now run it. You will get the interface as shown in the screenshot below.
You can see on the left pane there are various categories. You can expand each category by clicking on the white arrow next to it. Those categories are on the right too. You can enter inside corresponding subcategory by clicking on any one of them.
Here are the main categories:
Software system (28)
Hardware system (15)
Network and internet (18)
Database system (4)
Hardware resources (4)
Note: Numbers in the bracket next to the name of a category corresponds to number of subcategories.
So you can see that there are 10 categories and 118 subcategories. Each subcategory comes with detailed reports.
For example in the screenshot shown below, I clicked on the arrow next to “Hardware System”. It expands and shows all the hardware present in my laptop. When I clicked on Processor subcategory, it shows me the processor details on the right.
When you move on to the last category, i.e. Benchmarks, it divides into seven subcategories.
It produces a performance report after conducting a thorough PC diagnostics.
Note: To see the benchmark report, you have to register first. To register go to Help-> Register. Enter your name and the key you received in your mail.
There are several reasons to use this software. If you are purchasing an assembled PC then you can check and compare all the hardware as per promised by the seller. Also you could compare the hardware and performance of two PCs with different configurations.
If you are looking to generate a profile of your PC that has all the details like the kind of hardware and software it has, the security status (whether the anti-virus is there and working), missing updates etc then Belarc Advisor will come in handy
