Windows® 7 Utility Software
What are the features and role of utility software supported by Windows 7?
Utility software for Windows 7 Operating System is a kind of system software designed to assist in evaluating, organizing, optimizing, and retaining the activities of the computer. Utility software should be contrasted with application software, which permits you to do things like creating text documents, playing games, listening to music, or browsing the web. Other than providing these kinds of user-oriented or output-oriented functionality, to some extent, a utility software focuses on how the computer infrastructure (including the computer hardware, Operating System, application software, and data storage) operates. Due to this, utilities are often somewhat technical and targets people with highly developed level of computer knowledge. Most utilities are tremendously specialized and meant to carry out just a single task or a small range of tasks. However, there are also some utility software that merge several features in one piece of software.
