Runscanner can best be compared to the popular HiJackThis system analyzer, even though it has more to offer than its popular counterpart. Our first Runscanner review dates back to 2007, and a recent program update to version 188.8.131.52 was all we needed to take a second look at the program.
When you first run the program, which is portable by the way, you are asked whether you want to start it in beginner or expert mode. Beginner mode is a limited mode that makes sure that users cannot just delete any file that pops up in the program. It basically lets computer novices create a log file that they submit to an expert to have it looked at.
The expert mode on the other hand enables all program faetures, including reporting, tweaking and deleting of files.
