Tests and Scans
Search Our Known-Programs Database
PC Pitstop collects and analyzes information about running programs during our full system tune-up process. This lets us spot emerging trends in new viruses and spyware, and it also helps us to identify benign-but-unneeded programs that many systems are running.
A file name alone may not be enough for positive identification. PC Pitstop can make a more definitive call when you run PC Pitstop Exterminate, our full tests, or our quick spyware scan, using information such as the company name, product name, or install directory.
