Help Troubleshoot Your PC with ESET’s SysInspector

When your troubleshooting a computer it is always nice to have a systems diagnostic tool at the ready.  Today we take a look at ESET’s SysInspector, which is an extremely detailed diagnostic tool for Windows that helps technicians diagnose problems.

There is no installation needed with SysInspector as it is a single file executable that you can run from a flash drive if you want.  You will need to scroll all the way to the bottom of the EULA and agree to begin using it.


After clicking I Agree it will start to scan your system.

SysInspector generates a detailed real-time snapshot of your current system.  In fact this will tell you what processes are running behind svchost.exe which is always handy.


It captures details such as running processes, registry content, startup items, network connections and a lot more.  It has the ability to discover rootkits in the Master Boot Record, registry, services, and even drivers.  It also includes a handy search feature that will allow you to quickly find specific information.


The menu bar on the left lets you access history, change views, access different features, compare logs, and search online for different data found.


You have the option to save the logs which can come in handy when keeping track of multiple computers.


SysInspector is bundled with NOD32 Antivirus and Smart Security version 4.  It is a tool to aimed to help aid IT and Tech Support teams diagnose issues with the computer but can also be used by experienced computer geeks.  It can also be downloaded from their site as a free stand alone app for XP , Vista and Windows 7 32 & 64 bit versions.

    i’ve renewed eset smart security for the second time. it’s an invaluable tool for windows. along with sysinspector it comes with sysrescue. after being infected with coolwebsearch which shut down norton antivirus and took over my computer i was on a quest to find the best in windows security. after trying everything on the market i’ve found eset to be the only security product worth using.
    back to the topic, sysinspector is an excellent tool. the ability to see every thing running and the level of importance makes this a fairly simple program to read but a little knowledge is helpful knowing what each process does.
