Editors' Review

+
This diagnostic tool gives you tons of information about every element of your system, such as your CPU, memory (virtual, physical, and swap-file), display drivers, virtual devices, and interrupt-request list. The system information for each category shows up quickly, and most of the benchmarks run smoothly, even when you have other applications running. We found ourselves wishing for the ability to change attributes and settings, but that is probably beyond the scope of such a program. The standard Explorer-style folder interface makes it easy to access all the information. The arrow keys will only move you up and down the folder list, replacing the information displayed in the main window. The program outputs the system report as an HTML file that mimics the look of the program. During testing, running a system report took longer than we expected, especially considering how quickly the information shows up in the main program. Otherwise, performance is excellent. Though the program is free, you must register your copy after 11 days. Gearheads will appreciate the wealth of system information Fresh Diagnose provides.

"Lots of info, but..."

October 21, 2006  |  By Jacky Tar

 |  Version: Fresh Diagnose 7.36

Pros

The system information presentation is very well done - uncluttered yet very in-depth. I particularly like that the program provides configuration analysis.

Cons

Oh boy, where do I start?

First and foremost, I do NOT like that it freezes out all input while a benchmark is running. If ever the program crashed while running a benchmark, I'd have to power-down and recover. NOT good.

Second, I found the registration process somewhat convoluted. I note that some other users have found it impossible, including no access to their site. As a standard precaution, I recommend using a junk email address when registering. Note to Fresh Devices programmers: Don't send me registration keys for all your products; just the one I'm registering.

Thirst, System Mechanic reported three adware infestations in this program. If you're going to produce a program to benchmark my computer's performance, why load it down with process-sucking parasites?

Rating: Four thumbs down

"Cannot get product key/Registration and nobody's home at their website"

August 23, 2006  |  By mhpriest

 |  Version: Fresh Diagnose 7.36

Pros

Analysis and detail are good

Cons

Cannot get product key/Registration and nobody's home at their website. I turned off all my security but it still comes up with errors. Checked with my ISP also. Too bad that you have to wait XX minutes before the software opens without the registration...

"Useless tool from a suspect company -- fishing for email addresses?"

August 11, 2006  |  By A.o.S.DFA

 |  Version: Fresh Diagnose 7.36

Pros

None. This tool only tells you everything you already knew.

Cons

The functioning tools are merely system profilers that tell you everything you can already find using the existing windows Control Panel.

This supposedly has benchmarking tools that only work if you sign up for the "free" registration.

The registration process DOES NOT WORK, and is clearly a scam to collect email addresses. You will never receive a registration code. Not in the advertised 3 minutes, not ever.

They "advise" that you not use webmail addresses like yahoo or gmail to register. Of course not, they have the most sophisticated spam blockers.

The website for this outfit is unprofessional (to be kind) and also filled with advertisements for other tools that don't do anything you can't already do, which just doesn't pass the smell test.

 |  Version: Fresh Diagnose 7.36

Pros

Nothing. Security would not even let it install!

Cons

What I don't like is that I was under the impression these Downloads were vetted!

"Does a good job but hides AdWare into download"

May 11, 2006  |  By user135

 |  Version: Fresh Diagnose 7.36

Pros

Very descriptive details of computer hardware and operating system. It has a nice user interface and is very intuitive to use. BenchMarking has nice barcode graph to compare to other system performances whos results have been saved within the software.

Cons

#1) AOL Spyware picked up on an embedded AdWare program that may explain the system slow down reported by some other users.

#2) registration is a pain. Aol email accounts will not work.

#3) Benchmarking places my P3 1.1GHz laptop a little faster then a 1.6GHz P4, so not real accurate

"great program, website R losers!!"

April 25, 2006  |  By stingermx

 |  Version: Fresh Diagnose 7.36

Pros

I have used this program in the past and had no problems with it in doing diagnostics.

Cons

But when my old password would not work with this program, I had to email the "fresh" web site for a new password. two weeks later and over ONE HUNDRED EMAILS sent? NO REPLY! You can not do anything in checking out your computer until you have registered the program. Go to freshdevices.com 1st to get password and then download program.
