Diagnostic tools such as Random's System Information Tool or RSIT can make a detailed analysis of the computer system and generate elaborate reports regarding its efficiency, resource utilisation etc. After installation, first use of the RSIT generates two reports infot and logt. In subsequent runs, only the logt is generated. The logt report contains general information about the RSIT version, OS, hard disk, RAM etc. that can be used to identify causes for delays in the computer if any. The infot is generated during the first use right after the installation of the RSIT and consists of a list of software, security software and environment variable amongst others.
Hijackthis has not evolved since 2007 and although it is a very efficient tool, it is rapidly becoming inadequate; we often need to use diagnostic tools that make further analysis and generate longer reports...Random's System Information Tool (RSIT), created by Random/Random, is one such tool.
