[KB762] What is ESET SysInspector?


ESET SysInspector is a free, state-of-the-art diagnostic tool for Windows based systems. It examines your operating system and captures details such as running processes, registry content, startup items and network connections.

Once a snapshot of the system is created, ESET SysInspector applies heuristics to assign a risk level for each object logged. Its intuitive graphical user interface enables the user to easily slice through the large volume of data by using a slider to select objects of a particular color coded risk level for closer examination. ESET SysInspector is a convenient utility for the tool box of every IT expert and first responder.
