From the developer's site:

Dramatically improve technical support!

The next time you contact a company for technical support, save yourself a lot of time and frustration by including a snapshot of your entire system. Technical Snapshot is easy to use, whether you're a Macintosh novice or a power user.

Just look at all the things it checks for automatically!
Checks all disks for damaged desktop files and for soft-locked or nearly full disks.
Checks the System Folder for damaged, locked, open, unstable, or invisible extensions.
Checks the Preferences folder for damaged, locked, or invisible preferences.
Checks the entire parameter RAM (PRAM) for garbage or abnormal settings. Including:
Too low or too high disk cache
24-bit memory mode
SCSI startup settings
Mouse tracking speed and double-click timing
Keyboard autorepeat settings
IIfx and 68040 compatibility modes
Power saver settings
Highlight color
Too long network name
Checks the "focus" application or document for problems. Such as:
Resource damage
Damaged preferences
Invalid custom icons
Incorrect bundle bit settings
Invisible, locked, or inappropriate attributes
