K1

CNET Editors' review

This multipurpose utility generates profiles of your computer hardware and software and offers various system tweaking tools, but crashes often. K1's straightforward interface displays a tree listing of 19 hardware areas of your system. The program doesn't gather the information very quickly, but the wait is acceptable. The results tree lists hardware details including operating system, CPU, motherboard, and hard drive. From some file headers you can open additional information such as Windows updates, running processes, installed software, Windows Services, and drivers. In our tests, the program often crashed when opening some file headers or when generating a report. K1 does include numerous helpful features to manage processes and services and uninstall programs. A trace-cleaning utility removes Recent Documents history, Windows and Internet temporary files, cookies, and Internet history, but it only supports IE users. The built-in optimizer is designed to make your system perform faster, but our tests found little improvement. Even with the frequent crashes and minor annoyances, this freeware will be a useful addition to any technician's toolbox.
