Windows Vulnerability Scanner
Windows Vulnerability Scanner is a powerful software solution designed to scan your computer and find vulnerabilities in the operating system.
Adding a new layer of security to your Windows operating system, Windows Vulnerability Scanner sports a straightforward interface that guides users throughout the entire process.
The application adopts a very user friendly approach, bringing down the process of scanning the system to just a few clicks.
After opening, the main window of the app shows system information, such as the running operating system, processor, total physical memory, page file space, user name and some other details.
However, what's being shown after the scanning process comes to an end is much more important because it displays operating system vulnerabilities along with risk level and a direct download link for the patch. This way, you can enhance the security of your system and make sure you're on the safe side all the time.
Unfortunately however, Windows Vulnerability Scanner works exclusively on Windows XP, both Home and Professional, Windows 2000 Server and Professional and Windows 2003, so no Vista and 7 support.
The scanning process doesn't take much time and the CPU and RAM don't seem to be stressed up during the process, which is quite good news. The program can thus be used on older machines too, without any flaw.
Overall, Windows Vulnerability Scanner can do a great job on any computer out there and with support for more Windows versions, including Vista and 7, it could easily become a must have software solution.
