Editors' Review Staff Apr 26, 2009

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.
