BigFix intelligently detects and corrects problems on your PC
BigFix is a Windows software solution designed to lend you a hand when trying to keep your computer secure, providing all the necessary tools to patch vulnerabilities and security holes.
Although you may find the interface a bit overwhelming at the first glance, it’s all just a matter of time until you get used to it, so it’s actually a very straightforward design.
The application automatically scans the system and informs you about any security issue that may exist on a computer, including bugs, outdated software solutions and other security flaws that may put your data at risk.
Obviously, since it detects all problems in just a few seconds, BigFix also comes with dedicated tools to fix all of them with just a few clicks, without assaulting the user with complex features.
There’s a settings menu as well, but the options available in there are only limited and mostly concern the Internet connection preferences. And speaking of Internet connection, your computer must be connected to the Internet in order to retrieve the latest patches.
Of course, BigFix runs on a moderate amount of computer resources and while it works okay on older versions of Windows, there seem to be some compatibility issues on Windows 7. Sometimes it fails to launch, while in some cases the app crashes all of a sudden.
All in all, BigFix is indeed a very handy piece of software, but some upgrades are absolutely mandatory. Plus, a more user friendly approach, including a revised interface and more advanced configuration screens would not hurt anyone.
