Most computers begin to suffer from stability malfunctions and other system health issues with continued use, although to a different degree that may depend on different factors. Reduced system health that manifests itself in various PC malfunctions may be caused by a wide array of issues.
The most important first step to restoring system health is proper diagnostics. A computer needs to be scanned to pinpoint the causes of PC malfunctions and to find the best strategy for fixing them.
An efficient way to check system health is with the help of a special software that performs a comprehensive checkup of the system and detects the issues that may be behind various PC malfunctions.

The article provides details on the reasons for and role of proper PC diagnostics, as well as ways to check system health.

Reasons for PC diagnostics

Signs that a PC needs to be scanned and diagnosed include application or system freezes (when an application or the whole system stops responding to mouse clicks or any other user actions for a brief period of time, but later returns to normal operation), application or system crashes (when an application or the whole system stops responding to user actions and nothing can bring it back to normal operation; application has to be terminated or a PC reboot is required), random computer reboots that are not initiated by the user, various warning messages or BSOD ("blue screen of death" or the "STOP warning"), as well as connectivity issues that result in lower internet connection speeds.

Role of proper PC diagnostics

Since the same PC issues may sometimes have different causes, it may be challenging to repair a PC and restore system health without proper diagnostics. A user may presume that an issue is caused by a certain condition or misconfigured settings, and try repairing the issue, but it may not produce the desired result in terms of improved performance. This may often be due to the fact that the presumed cause of the malfunction was not the actual cause, and therefore the repair had no effect. In such cases, it is recommended to scan a PC with a proper tool that can detect the exact causes of computer malfunctions and other signs of reduced system health, providing a comprehensive diagnosis that gives enough information for executing effective repair.

Ways to check system health

Advanced PC users may be able to check system health and find the causes of some computer issues by manually exploring different possibilities. However, if broken or outdated entries in system elements or system files are detected as a possible cause and deleted, it may result in more malfunctions and may even carry the risk of rendering the operating system unbootable. Whenever a user is in any doubt of their technical skills or knowledge, they may use special software that is meant to scan a PC without requiring any special skills.

The following steps may check system health:

  • Download the PC scan application
  • Install and launch the application
  • Click the Scan Now button to detect causes of reduced system health

The same application can be used to repair the detected issues, as well as run preventative measures to reduce the chance of computer issues appearing in the future.
