F-Secure Health Check is a good PC security checkup

F-Secure Health Check

F-Secure, known for their anti-virus software, has just released F-Secure Health Check, a program that looks for unsafe and outdated software on your Windows PC. I gave it a try this week and it seems true to its word. Not only does it look for problems, but it fixes them as well.

Because the tool runs as an ActiveX control, it requires Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or newer (sorry Firefox and Opera fans).

Checks include:

  • Security programs
  • Windows (whether it is up-to-date)
  • Whether browsing is safe
  • Whether e-mail programs are safe
  • IM programs
  • Multimedia files/formats (Acrobat, Flash, Quicktime, etc.)
  • Other programs
