The client is quite small at under 500kb and initiates with a scan of the system to diagnose and repair any issues resident. Upon completion of the scan you will be given the choice of what to repair and what to report with a log of every action performed being kept for your records to review at a later date if necessary.


Microsoft provide this free tool as a means to lessen common problems experienced and keep Windows installs safer and up-to-date.


The official homepage gives more information on how it works as well as providing the link for the client download.
