    Anyone know of a universal diagnostic tool, which can tell you of any virus, spyware, corrpt files, speed up computer, optimize internet speed, bsically a god tool for non compuer literate people?

    -Preferably a free program, or one that my friend could try prior to purchasing

    (I know Dell usually includes a diagnostic tool in their computers)

    there are loads of programs that CLAIM to do all of these things
    but to get and effective appraisal or diagnosis of a computer the best tools
    are usually on a standalone basis e.g. Kaspersky for AV, Ewido for Spyware
    and SFC ( an inbulit ms tool ) for corrupt files.

    Hope this helped!

    Thanks! The reason I'm asking for a diagnosic tool is because a friend of mine is having problems with his internet and I wasn't exactly sure what it is and I'm about 7 hours away, so a drive over there wouldn't be too easy. I believe I saw a program someone spoke about on here before that would allow someone to see the person's computer through your monitor, but i'm not sure how it works

    WITHOUT an internet connection though
