PeStudio is a free malware program that uses static analysis, among other techniques, to diagnose suspicious applications. Though the program is targeted for Windows experts and developers, its most basic features are simple enough for any Windows-user to understand and put to use.
To begin, one needs only to drag and drop the program or file they're unsure about onto the PeStudio icon. Before long, the user is privy to a detailed report which communicates valuable information, such as whether the program possesses a digital signature, for instance, or if it runs better for 32 or 64-bit processors, under the 'Indicators' tab.
More advanced users can head over to the 'Strings' tab, which will disclose embedded strings: paths, prompts, function names, allowing the user to discover what the application is actually doing.
