If your PC starts having problems such as slowness, unresponsiveness, system crashes and so on, surely it requires a deep maintenance job urgently. To do it, the most advisable thing is to use a specialized software tool, such as PC Reviver. This is an all-in-one maintenance utility that repairs and optimizes all the key areas of your system, returning it to an optimal working state.

PC Reviver bases its functionality in two main strategies: repair and maintenance. The first time you launch the program, it scans your system automatically and shows you its general status through a visual indicator based in colors (green means that everything is working just fine, orange means that your system requires some attention and red means that there are urgent actions that need to be taken immediately). The program also tells you what the next recommended action to take is, for example, "repair".

PC Reviver offers you a modern and visually attractive user interface which includes several sections, being the main ones "Repair" and "Maintain", of course. Repair section takes charge of looking for driver updates and analyzing your registry and hard disk to detect any kind of errors and unnecessary/junk files. Once you see the report, you can repair all the detected errors by just clicking on a button.

Maintenance section of the program, on the other hand, offers you multiple tools you can use to optimize your system, like crash helper, driver backup, process library, registry defrag, startup manager and uninstall manager. All these tools run in the main window of the program, and each one allows you to configure its specific parameters. Besides, both the "registry cleaner" and the "driver update" tools create backups before optimizing their corresponding areas. If for any reason you need to restore those backups later, you can do it from the "Restore" section of the program.

Finally, I will mention that even though you can find a myriad of all-in-one maintenance tools available on the software market, PC Reviver offers some features that turn it unique. For example, the "Answers" area of the program gives you access to a rich knowledge-base of questions/answers about common and not-so-common computer problems. If you cannot find the answer to your problem, you can always ask your own question. Also, there is the "crash-helper" tool, which allows you to enter the error code you can see in the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) that appears when your system crashes, and helps you understand what the problem is and how to solve it.

Summing it all up, PC Reviver is a comprehensive maintenance tool that can solve virtually any performance problems your PC may be having. You can use the program for free indefinitely, but some of its functions, like the registry repair, are locked until you buy a license and register the program.
