I searched for this but couldn't find anything, sorry if this question is repetitious. I have an HP Pavilion Slimline desktop running Win7 Pro. As a rule I don't use the HP Support Assistant, but I did let it run its monthly hardware check, and it's already identified a failing hard drive once, so the check is useful. However, recently HP updated the thing and the new version simply Will Not Run. Shortly after I bought the PC, a failed upgrade process for HP Support Assistant kept me from using the printer scanner for several months while I sorted out a peculiar error in HP's install sequence; and I just wasn't about to do their debugging for them again. So after it went into an "I've hit an error and need to close" loop, I uninstalled it, and I'm now looking for another tool that will do that "all-in-one" health check on disk, memory, etc. Any suggestions, preferably but not necessarily free?
