Is there somewhere a decent free software solution that scans your pc on errors and also corrects them?

Indeed this is a nice program (AWC) but it doesn't help with hardware errors...I'm curious to know which program Marcel uses for these kind of errors.
A colleague told me this week he used Fresh Diagnose (7.82) It has a nice interface and includes some benchmarks (Freeware) (Don't use the Dutch interface: really bad translations unless you understand: "middelen van de hardware")
Of course software can fix only a very limited part of hardware errors, they don't install a mini pc technician in your pc... too bad though.

Edit: Tried the Freshdiagnostic tool myself now and as the title says, it's just a diagnostic tool. On my pc I had to end it through taskmanager, it didn't respond on normal exit functions

They have had one for a long time. Ive used it on the family laptop for a long time now. Its very good.

If anyone would like a free antivirus which is a little more light weight for their gaming rig Avast! now has a free version too. http://avast.com/

While we're on a 'free security' thread, could anybody recommend a free firewall please. Aol used to give a free McAfee one but I'm not sure if that's still available...At least I can't find it.

I have just moved over to Norton Internet Security 2009 which always was notorius for comp resource eating but find this really great and it has a 90 free subsciption which is normally enough for me .....It also has a GAMERS MODE where it is less stringent on your PC and more IP freindly when doing online gaming.
