Overview

During your session at your computer you may encounter crashes, error messages and slowdowns due to various reasons. Kingsoft PC Doctor is an all-in-one solution designed to help you maintain your computer, keep it clean from junk files and increase its speed with various methods. It is very easy to use, making it an ideal solution for beginners while still being suitable for more advanced users as well.

Installation

The installation package is very small and doesn’t include any other additional software with it; the setup finishes almost as soon as it starts. This program has very few requirements and the supported operating systems are Windows XP, Vista and 7.

Interface

The interface looks very simple and attractive, with modern buttons and explanations for every tool. It keeps a record of errors and junk that has been found in previous scans, as well as a section with recommended tools to use. When the main window is closed, it leaves a process running in the taskbar and a small bar in your screen that displays the CPU and memory load, showing detailed information about every process when you hover over it.

One small and unique touch is a “Like” button on the bottom right of the main Window, which directs you to Kingsoft Security’s Facebook page instead of the usual link to the company’s website.

Pros

It has a diagnostic utility that lets you scan your computer to gather and display information about your system’s overall status. This way you can see in which area your computer needs more attention and alerts you to be more careful in the future to avoid serious problems.

PC Doctor has another interesting tool that drastically increases your system’s loading times by disabling unwanted processes. Those startup tasks make Windows slower, with more chances of crashing. You can let the program take a recommended action for each process, or you can decide yourself which tasks to allow or disable.

Cons

Sometimes it is impossible for the program to fix all the errors, as they seem to be corrected at first but then reappear if you scan again. Some problems are persistent and Kingsoft PC Doctor is unable to take care of them.

Alternatives

TuneUp Utilities has more features and is more reliable than Kingsoft PC Doctor, but it also eats up a lot of system’s resources making its use unbearable on slower computers. CCleaner on the other hand is very lightweight, simple and has more functions than PC Doctor, making it a fine alternative.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a neat utility that keeps your computer in a good state of health, this program is for you. It has all the necessary utilities to keep Windows running smoothly, and all it takes is a few mouse clicks.

Requirements: CPU:PIII 500 MHz or higher; RAM: 128 MB or above
