VAIO Care, by Sony, is a free systems diagnostics and optimization tool developed for owners of systems that were created by Sony before their PC business was spun off.
The basic premise of the program is basic computer health diagnostics as well as providing some additional tools to help keep Sony VAIO computers up-to-date.
The main layout of VAIO Care is easy-to-understand and provides quick access to system status, as well as quickly displaying any potential issues that VAIO Care has diagnosed. It also includes an upselling feature which attempts to have their customers purchase "VAIO Care Premium Tools" which, for the most part, aren't that helpful.
The main status section of VAIO Care includes "Messages", Performance issues, Security issues and finally some access to system settings. One useful thing VAIO Care provides is a quick way to install and uninstall specific VAIO programs and tools.
Overall, VAIO Care lacks in the area of system optimization and their up-selling can be annoying, but it does provide an easy way to diagnose Sony-specific issues.
