Belarc Advisor

Friday, May 6th, 2011 by | Filed Under: Free Downloads, Uncategorized

Have you ever wondered just how secure your computer is? Do you struggle with pinpointing exactly where flaws could be and how to fix them? Well, I have a found a free advisory tool that will tell you exactly what problems may be lurking in your computer and in what places. The best part of this program is that is is 100% FREE!

Upon initially downloading the program, it had me do an update to download the newest Security Definitions. This was very simple and only took a few minutes.









After this was complete, it took me to a web page within minutes that showed me everything I would ever need to know about My Computer. I was simply shocked how much information it was able to gather within such a short period of time. It told me everything from what Operating System I had, down to a detailed description of every Windows update I have done since I installed Windows 7. It also gave me a simple score at the top of the page, showing me important things that needed to be done to my machine.


While this program is designed to give you so much information that you may not know what to do with, you will still need to take action to correct your computer. Please note: this focuses mainly on security issues and separate updates may also need to be applied from places like the Windows Update website.

All in all, I found this be one of the best advisory programs on the market today. It seems like nothing, and I mean nothing, gets past it. So, go ahead and give it a shot – lets see how truly secure we all really are. Click here for your free download.

    This has to be the best free program that you’ll ever install on your computer. I have been using it for about four years now and it does a great job of informing me when my computer is not current with my updates. I use it every time I install a new program or add a new piece of hardware. I try to use it once a week so that I know what is going on with my machine.

    Try it you’ll like it.

    FYI Advisor also gives you your Program Key #’s. Saved me a couple of times when I had ‘lost’ or they strayed.

    I spent a considerable amount of time attempting to download Belarc Advisor, but was unable to complete the download. I would end with Microsoft Windows Setup/Uninstall stopped working. The one time it did continue I found myself downloading a UniBlue program which completed similar evaluation of my computer. The bigger problem is that a virus was attached to the download. Fortunately Prevx protects my computer (This is not an advertisement or recommendation on my part, I hope). The virus was initiated 5-9-11. It was previously downloaded while downloading a program recommended by Computer Tips 5-10-11. The Uni Blue program was downloaded then with the virus. I am providing this as information. Since it happened twice, it could happen to other subscribers who unwittenly download a program which you did not intend to have downloaded. I also found that since I had previously downloaded UniBlue as a way to speed up my computer, that they charged my credit card $28 which was used with them in the past. Please warn and protect other readers. Thanks, david

    The Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer available free from Microsoft is a
    very good tool that does the same things and other different ones to check
    the security of your computer, including missing updates, Internet Explorer
    settings, etc.
    Highly recommended over Belarc Advisor.

    Belarc Advisor does a great analysis — but no obvious instructions on what to do with it or how to correct errors. Are simple and clear instructions available anywhere? Or did I miss them? Thank you.
