Editors' Review

+

Hiring a professional computer-security consultant is out of reach for most home PC users, but Belarc Advisor can fill part of that gap.

The app analyzes a machine's weak points, looking at elements such as whether antivirus software is up to date, or whether all the security flaws in Windows have been patched. It uses the Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmark test to give the computer a score showing its overall security level, and produces a report that can be viewed in a Web browser.

Not only does it analyze software and operating system components and tell you where problems are, but in its comprehensive report it tells you what your computer's physical components are: not just how much RAM you have, for example, but what kind of RAM and which slots are occupied.

This program doesn't fix the problems itself, but gives clear advice on how to address each issue. This download is free for personal use; we recommend it to home users as a first step in securing their home systems, or for those considering a hardware upgrade who want to see what's in their current system.

"This is the best"

September 04, 2011  |  By coach mick

 |  Version: Belarc Advisor 8.2d

Pros

The detail to which this program lists the contents is bang on it is accurate almost to a fault but not.

Cons

If there is one I didn't see it or even look for it

Summary

When I install a program into my computer it's not until I do the research to see if it will fill the need that I'm looking for and Belarc gave me exactly what I needed to reload my operating system and put my computer back into shape with the least amount of work.

"Analizes computer ang gives report on internet."

August 14, 2011  |  By capitanflorius

 |  Version: Belarc Advisor 8.2d

Pros

The data that came back are generally the same issues you have with other software.
The most important thing are the news about the updates that may be missing of window update

Cons

Istallation is too much long, and it did scan the computer without asking any permission first.

Summary

As to me, good program, but nothing of exceptional!!
