Like the control center of a cell, System Nucleus aims to be the core control center for the Windows operating system. The functionality may appear overwhelming on first startup, with more than 15 different buttons to access the program's features and a menubar with additional options.
A short explanation is displayed on mouse over to give the user a first understanding of each button's functionality.
A click on a button will launch the tool in a new tab, which makes it simple to open multiple tools at once.
System Nucleus offers an incredible amount of tools and features, here is a short overview of each utility:
But the tools above are only part of what the software has to offer. The menubar lists several additional tools that are of use to system administrators and for troubleshooting and auditing purposes.
Tools for instance links to all Control Panel apples, all administrative tools (like user accounts, event viewer, local security policy or performance monitor), diagnostics and repair tools (like check disk, DirectX Diagnostic Tool, Driver verification tool, and Help and Support), networking tools (like remote desktop client, remote assistance or shared folders), Security (including Windows Firewall with advanced security, Network Access Protection client, Malicious Software Removal Tool or Windows Defender) and System tools.
All services and features of the Tools menu are directly available in Windows. The Online Tools entry on the other hand links to online services.
This section links to multiple log file analysis tools, online malware file and system scanners, security audit services, services where suspicious files can be submitted to and links to software update services like Windows Update.
System Nucleus is an asset for every system administrator, but also for computer users who want to configure, troubleshoot or repair their Windows system. The software is available at the developer's website as a portable version and an installer. It does require the .NET Framework 3.5 though. (via Download Squad)
