"What began as a resource is becoming commercialized."
Comprehensive snapshot of your entire computer, including what you OUGHT to have but don't, and what is activated and not but should be. Provides quantitative score for various categories like security. Self-updating.
Like so many other programs that began purely as a solid resource for consumers/users, IMO, Belarc is becoming a commercial enterprise, offering to sell you what you need for your pc or your business operation. Don't have XYZ coverage? Hmmm down goes your score, and a red mark stuck next to it. NOBODY wants a low score in ANYTHING, or a nasty looking red mark!
To my limited knowledge, nothing evaluates one's computer like Belarc does, and does it so thoroughly. I'm willing to overlook the offer to buy, buy, buy in favor of a comprehensive view of my computer. I'll evaluate the efficacy of what I need to bolster my score, thank you! It does point out potential security weaknesses, and need to update drivers, if you can get past the commercialization. A good, free, program.
