One cannot afford a professional computer consultant for his personal computer because it not feasible on practical and financial grounds. Belarc Advisor is a free tool which scans your computer for all the lame and weak elements like anti-virus update, installed software and hardware, missing Microsoft hotfixes, benchmarks your computer with CIS (Center of Internet Security) and displays it to you on your web browser.

Apart from informing you about all the weaker parameters of your computer, Belarc Advisor tells you about the physical components on your computer like how much RAM you are using and even the things like type of RAM and slots on which your RAM is installed.

Belarc Advisor offers you with all the help that a professional computer consultant does. And while doing so you neither take any appointment nor do you pay a penny. While providing the complete profile of your computer, Belarc Advisor makes sure that it does not provide the extracted information to any other source, keeping the complete profile private.

    I have used and enjoyed Belarc advisor for years. Outstanding program. Recently after updating program when I ran it, instead of opening results in browser, it opened VLC media player. Of course, this did help at all. Has anyone any idea how to fix this? Thank you in advance.
