Editors' Review


The Ultimate Troubleshooter aims to help computer users detect and avoid the problems that plague their system. By acting as a coach and healer, this program wants to do it all. Despite strict trial limitations, we found it delivered.

Ultimate Troubleshooter's interface is a little crowded, with the majority of the display taken up by a screen outlining the programs and whether they are a threat. Around this box are several smaller ones, showcasing performance, diagnosing problems, and giving solutions. The main screen can be toggled between different tabs showing the user Tasks, Services, and Startups. Once a user learns what each box does, the program is simple and refreshing. If a problem is found, it goes at the top of the list. By clicking on a problem file or program, a plainspoken diagnosis is given, including (at least on the issues we tested it with) illuminating history, reasons for the occurrence, and what to do to solve the problem. Below this, simple step-by-step instructions tell users how to isolate or eliminate the problem.

You won't be able to see the diagnoses and solution information for all issues with the trial version, which is also limited to 10 uses. You have to purchase the program to access all data. Even so, during our brief glimpse of Ultimate Troubleshooter we found a unique product that helped solve problems by speaking a language every computer user can understand. We recommend this download for anyone looking to quickly identify and fix system issues.

 |  Version: The Ultimate Troubleshooter 4.96


It's good for stopping programs that you don't want to start up. That's all it'[s good for now since it's not being updated and hasn't been for years - despite still taking in people's money. It will show you all the stuff that runs on your PC, but it no longer tells you want any new stuff is - only old programs in their database - they solicit info on unknown programs but no longer add that info to the program making it pointless


A once useful program is now a scam and has been for many years I'm sorry to say. They are taking in money and not updating the program or the adding the user provided information. DO NOT RENEW YOUR SUBSCRIPTION! You are throwing your money away.


I last purchased TUT update about 5 years or so ago. I won't purchase another. I have version 4.92. It won't let me go to 4.96 unless I shell out another $30. That ain't going to happen. They take your money and don't do a damn thing in return. They need to be shut down and return monies. They are blatantly ripping people off. They have updated one thing - their website - they've added Windows 10 to the list of compatible and supported versions to fool new suckers into thinking the site and program are up-to-date. That's complete BS!

I had been conscientiously sending in descriptions and explanations for the "unknown" files on my PC that TUT was clueless about. I was trying to help out the community of fellow users as I assumed others were - but I never heard a word back - not even a thank you or acknowledgement. I began to think that I was the only person sending stuff in - and that my info was going into a big black hole. I realized that they were not adding any of the info that I was sending into them to be added to the database. Programs that should have been listed - well known programs - were never added to the known programs.

Here is a perfect example: TUT doesn't know what the Adobe Flash Player Update Service! ***? It hasn't known for years - and I've sent it in and pointed out the obvious. I bet that just about everyone reading this knows what that .EXE file does. TUT, the "Ultimate" troubleshooter doesn't. That's pathetic! It tells me that if I have the "paid-up" version of TUT I should check for updates. I used to do that when I was paid-up - it then tells me that after updating "if there are still any unidentified tasks I should use the "Email tasks" so that they would presumably add them after researching these tasks. TUT doesn't even know Windows Defender - ACDSee - Adobe Creative Cloud - and it doesn't know Microsoft's One Drive, Epson printer software, NVIDIA drivers and get this - It doesn't know CCleaner! All stuff that if I haven't sent it in I'm sure someone else out here has. Basically all that TUT is now is an outdated and overpriced start menu

I could go on and on - If you want proof just go to their TUT "Help on the Web" link: - It's a dead link! If the program had been abandoned - or the owner had health issues - fine - but it's a blatant rip-off now by misrepresenting what it is and taking money by deception.
