    General Windows Troubleshooting/Diagnostics Software Suite

    I'm looking for a decent General Windows Troubleshooting/Diagnostics Software Suite...

    ... but none of that garbage registry cleaner... system optimizer... PC tune-up CRAP.

    I'm not looking for miracle software, but just a decent reliable software suite with legitimate FUNCTIONAL utilities for diagnostic and troubleshooting of windows systems and minor hardware diagnostics (disk checks, memory test)... no "Optimization" functions *eyeroll* necessary ... besides minor correction/fix commands for small errors...

    I can repair most errors and navigate the registry on my own.. I'm just looking for (I hesitate to say it) a 'shortcut' in the diagnosis process for other users for whom I do routine maintenance.

    I've heard Sandra 2013 is decent, but can anyone else think of any other, possibly better or equally useful software suites?

    Greetings MrWalnuts and welcome to EightForums,

    You could try System Information for Windows. It looks like it's freeware if you scroll down a little in the download section. l can't tell you if it's better than Sandra though, just that it's an alternative.

    You can also try Hiren's BootCD and load it up with a bunch of diagnostic tools. But I get the feeling that Hiren's isn't what you're looking for.
