Kingsoft PC Doctor reviewed by Tennyson Acker on 25 Apr 2012


The installation package is very small and doesn’t include any other additional software with it; the setup finishes almost as soon as it starts. This program has very few requirements and the supported operating systems are Windows XP, Vista and 7.


The interface looks very simple and attractive, with modern buttons and explanations for every tool. It keeps a record of errors and junk that has been found in previous scans, as well as a section with recommended tools to use. When the main window is closed, it leaves a process running in the taskbar and a small bar in your screen that displays the CPU and memory load, showing detailed information about every process when you hover over it.
One small and unique touch is a “Like” button on the bottom right of the main Window, which directs you to Kingsoft Security’s Facebook page instead of the usual link to the company’s website.


It has a diagnostic utility that lets you scan your computer to gather and display information about your system’s overall status. This way you can see in which area your computer needs more attention and alerts you to be more careful in the future to avoid serious problems.
PC Doctor has another interesting tool that drastically increases your system’s loading times by disabling unwanted processes. Those startup tasks make Windows slower, with more chances of crashing. You can let the program take a recommended action for each process, or you can decide yourself which tasks to allow or disable.


Sometimes it is impossible for the program to fix all the errors, as they seem to be corrected at first but then reappear if you scan again. Some problems are persistent and Kingsoft PC Doctor is unable to take care of them.


TuneUp Utilities has more features and is more reliable than Kingsoft PC Doctor, but it also eats up a lot of system’s resources making its use unbearable on slower computers. CCleaner on the other hand is very lightweight, simple and has more functions than PC Doctor, making it a fine alternative.


If you’re looking for a neat utility that keeps your computer in a good state of health, this program is for you. It has all the necessary utilities to keep Windows running smoothly, and all it takes is a few mouse clicks.
