    Lightbulb SecurityCheck: Tool to scan and display all security programs

    SecurityCheck is a batch file tool that will scan and display all the security programs installed and running on your Windows PC. It is a portable .exe file. Click on it to run the scan. Once the scan is completed it will display the results.



    1. Antivirus check
    2. Firewall Check
    3. Anti-malware Check
    4. Checks other security tools installed
    5. Process Check: objlist.exe by Laurent
    6. System Health check

    Why install software from an unkown webbsite ?
    Although VirusTotal says the webbsite and the program is OK,
    you canīt be sure that the results from the program are reliable.

    Would it not be better (and safer ?) to use a wellknown program with good reputation from a trusted source instead ?
    Whatīs wrong with Secunia PSI...?


    "The Secunia PSI explained


    The Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) is a free computer security solution that identifies vulnerabilities in non-Microsoft (third-party) programs on your PC.

    Vulnerable programs can leave your PC open to attacks.

    Simply put, it scans software on your system and identifies programs in need of security updates to safeguard your PC against cybercriminals.
    It then supplies your computer with the necessary software security updates to keep it safe.
    Using a scanner like Secunia PSI 3.0 is complementary to antivirus software, and as a free computer security program, is essential for every home computer.

    Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) -- I used the older version in the past. I did not like Version's 3 automatically deciding, downloading, installing updates without any input from me. After realizing that I could not control the timing or which updates anymore, I uninstalled it. And, how do we know that the OP recommended an unknown web site? Apparently he downloaded and ran it, somebody was at that web site.
