Quick health check!!
« on: January 04, 2011, 05:01:39 PM »
Dear Forum,

How would you conduct a 'health check' for your PC?

My suggestion:

- Avast boot-time scan
- MBAM quick scan
- HijackThis log analysis online

Would be interesting to hear YOUR ideas!

avast quick scan ( or never if you have the screensaver scan activated )
MBAM quick scan once a week

A secunia scan would be nice as well. http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/online/

Since of course you're looking for a quick health check, it couldn't hurt to identify anything that may be out of date or vulnerable at the time, right?
