PC-Doctor diagnoses common problems on major system components. Diagnostic tests are run either locally or remotely through the Internet or an intranet.

Remote deployment manager (RDM) (downloadable)

RDM is a server-based application that simplifies the setup, configuration, rollout, and ongoing lower-level management of networked ThinkCentre desktop computers. Because RDM gains control of a PC before it boots its local operating system, many of the lower-level tasks that previously required a visit to each computer can now be performed over the network.
