RunScanner 2.0.0



RunScanner is a completely free portable windows system utility which scans your system for all configured running programs. You can use runscanner to detect autostart programs, spyware, adware, homepage hijackers, unverified drivers and other problems. Luckily, the application doesn't need to be installed on your system to properly function so you can keep it on a removable storage device to use on multiple computers. System requirements are also not something to worry about, making it compatible with a wide array of configurations.


Unlike most applications of its kind, the scan process only triggers if you press the corresponding button, thus giving you some time to get acquainted with the interface and functions. It only takes a matter of seconds for the scanner to do its job, leaving you to handle the rest.

Two main features are found in separate tabs, namely malware hunting and extra stuff. The application retrieves an abundance of info it displays in a table along with info like description, path, company and signer to check for authenticity. 

Sadly, there's no criteria to sort by file format, but you can use the integrated search engine in this regard. A bunch of operations can be performed to make sure specific files are safe. 

The context menu gives you the possibility to look up online with several search engines, upload to VirusTotal, or take matters into your own hands through the registry editor, file properties or opening its location.

The same can be done with running processes, with options to kill selected ones with non-windows entries selected by default so you need to pay attention. Again, you won't find an option to start new processes. Furthermore, a host file editor is included so you can manage website and network permissions.

Whenever changes are made, a restore point is automatically created so you can quickly revert in case unexpected events occur. Moreover, you can save the log file for further analysis, which comes in handy when managing multiple computers because machine details are also included.

Taking everything into consideration, we can say that RunScanner is a powerful utility dedicated to advanced users that want to take a closer look at running processes, registries, installed applications and more, in an attempt to keep the operating system clean. Although no automation tools are implemented, the rich set of tools is sure to get the job done.
