Editors' Review

+

This supposedly free program quickly scans your PC to find any problems that might put you at risk. We found it ironic that PC Health Check set off our spyware program during install and then proceeded to add numerous program links without permission. We weren't all that impressed by its capabilities, either.

PC Health Check's user interface is easy to use because there's only one real option. All you have to do is click the Scan button. The program very quickly scanned and identified problems on our PC. We were impressed by its findings, but then we clicked the Fix button. Instead of fixing all, or at least some, of the identified problems, we were told to call the number provided to speak to a specialist that would fix our PC's problems remotely. That didn't sit well with us. On top of that, the program installed multiple icons on our desktop without permission, and our spyware program detected a threat when we first installed the program.

PC Health Check is freeware, but on its own it does nothing but scan your computer. You'll have to pay up to deal with the issues it finds. We suggest you steer clear of this program and look for one that offers its own means of repairing any problems.

"Doesn't want to install"

May 23, 2009  |  By taylorb483

 |  Version: PC Health Check 1.0

Pros

Couldn't get past the install check list

Cons

Didn't want to install

Summary

During install it verifies that all necessary software components are available.
The last line is a check for Adobe Flash Player 9.0+.
The latest version of Adobe Flash Player is 10.0 which is installed on my PC.
So the application fails and it just refuses to go any further - so I can't give a proper review!

"Impressive! Great tool & not bundled w/ other software!"

December 05, 2008  |  By amw9463

 |  Version: PC Health Check 1.0

Pros

Told me exactly what was wrong with my computer and what needed to get fixed. The best part is it's a standalone software... once I ran the tool I didn't end up with tons of other software on my machine. I will run it on my other computers.

Cons

I can't say anything bad about it.

Summary

Download this product and scan your machine! The results are so valuable and useful.

"Cool and blazing fast; pinpoints problems in seconds"

December 05, 2008  |  By diwakarbhatia

 |  Version: PC Health Check 1.0

Pros

I have used many tools in market that take minutes if not hours to scan your PC and come out with recommendations that this tool does in seconds. Almost too good to be true. I used the service that the tool recommended and am very pleased with it.

Cons

It uninstalls after use. I would like to have it on a continued basis.
