Setting up Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is straightforward and fast. It's a small ~6MB download and takes about a minute to install. The interface is completely intuitive and streamlined so even someone with little knowledge about security software run this program periodically and keep his system free of malicious wares.
Our second recommendation is a free hardware information and diagnostic tool called HWiNFO32. In a nutshell, this little tool will show you everything there is to know about the hardware you are running. This includes processor, BIOS, RAM, motherboard, system cache, storage, and a lot more. You can also use this program to run benchmarks, gather information from sensor chips (temperature, voltage, and fan speed monitoring), and save detailed reports.
