    A PC’s health is similar to us, which need to be monitored regularly to keep them functioning at optimum caliber. There is plenty of software available in the market, which can be deployed for PC health check up.

    So, if you want to have a good relation with your computer then you must give attention to it on regular basis.

    Best is to keep observing simple activities on your computer like Internet speed, hard drive sound, sound from motherboard, buzz of cabinet’s fans, time taken by application to get explored, windows error, pop-ups and ads and many more.

    If you get any of the above or some other unexpected symptoms do take immediate actions.

    If you have problems on your Windows XP computer, then you can get access to Help and Support Center, which monitors your PC’s health.

    Step 1. Get the administrator credential on your computer, click Start and then navigate to Help and Support.
    Step 2. Pick the desired task from the list. Select "Use Tools to view your computer information and diagnose problems".
    Step 3. Click "My Computer Information" followed by "View the status of my system hardware and software".

    You will get the complete details of your hardware configuration hence; you can take the necessary steps to fix the issue.

    Note: Windows 7 user can make use of Action Center.

    However, if you don’t have the authority of local administrator you can access it through Run Command as below:

    Step 1. In the command prompt window, type:runas/user:administrator%windir%\pchealth\helpctr\binaries\helpctr.exe.
