Kaspersky Lab doesn’t offer a free Kaspersky Antivirus software like other security developers. However, of late, Kaspersky has released a bunch of free tools for Windows operating system, and some of them are truly good.
Kaspersky Software Updater, Kaspersky Password Manager, Kaspersky PC Cleaner, Kaspersky Safe Kids, Kaspersky Security Scan, and Kaspersky System Checker are some of the free utilities available from Kaspersky Lab. In this guide, we will see what’s Kaspersky System Checker is and how to use it on a Windows PC.
Kaspersky System Checker
Kaspersky System Checker is a free utility from Kaspersky Lab designed to help you scan your Windows PC for malware, software and hardware issues. The software also offers fixes for software issues, if found.
Once you download and run Kaspersky System Checker on your Windows PC, it scans for all system settings for vulnerabilities, installed programs, drivers, browser extensions, PC’s hardware, and scans all system files for malware. If an issue found with one of the settings of Windows operating system, it offers a fix for it.
In short, the Kaspersky System Checker can be used to check for vulnerabilities on your Windows PC. The utility comes in handy when you feel that a third-party software or malicious program has changed Windows security settings.
In addition to that, it offers some useful information about your PC’s hardware as well as installed software. Under System Info tab, it displays installed OS, serial number, motherboard serial number, vendor and model, BIOS version and developer, processor, RAM, graphics, and display.
Under System Info tab, you can also view installed browser extensions, all installed programs, recently installed programs, programs that are taking a considerable amount of disk space and infrequently used programs. The software enables you to uninstall programs from here.
We recommend you view the infrequently used programs section as we found out a couple of programs that we did not use for months. You can uninstall these infrequently used programs to get some free space.
Overall, a handy program for Windows operating system to assess the security of your PC. That said, there are other free utilities with similar or more functionalities. OPSWAT Security Score is one such tool.
