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

The article provides details on the reasons for and role of proper PC diagnostics, as well as ways to scan a computer.

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 error messages or BSOD ("blue screen of death" or the "STOP Error"), as well as connectivity issues that result in lower internet connection speeds.

Role of proper PC diagnostics

Since the same PC problems may sometimes have different causes, it is practically impossible to repair a PC and resolve its problems without proper diagnostics. A user may presume that an issue is caused by a certain condition or misconfigured setting, 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 problem was not the actual cause, and therefore the repair had no effect. Only scanning a PC with the proper tools allows to detect the exact causes of computer errors and other problems, providing a precise diagnosis that gives enough information for executing effective repair.

Ways to scan a PC

Advanced PC users may be able to find the causes of some computer errors by manually exploring different possibilities. However, if a wrong registry key or system file is detected as a possible cause and deleted, it may result in more problems 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 should only use special software that is meant to scan a PC without requiring any special skills.

Safe way to scan a computer:

  • Download the PC scan application
  • Install and launch the application
  • Click the Scan Now button to detect errors and abnormalities

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