All things considered, this free utility's wealth of PC-maintenance tools makes it a worthy pick for just about all users. Similar to a souped-up version of the Task Manager, Computer Inspector lets you view all running processes on your PC and disable unwanted items. The logically arranged and attractive interface also gives you options for managing browser-helper objects and other Net-related items; uninstalling applications; and managing which programs run on bootup. If Computer Inspector catches a suspicious program, such as a piece of adware, it alerts you by highlighting that entry in red. In our tests, all of the program's tools demonstrated effective performance, and the vast majority of them were a snap to use. Folks seeking a simple way to keep their machine in good condition will find the free Computer Inspector a handy pickup.
