Belarc Advisor is 1 small, very lightweight tool that sends you back a complete diagnosis of your computer in the form of an HTML page in your web browser (IE, Firefox, Netscape and Opera are recognized). Don't worry: everything is done locally, nothing is sent on the net!
The report posted by Belarc Advisor includes information about your hardware configuration (graphics card, processor, hard drive, ect…), but also about versions (the registered license keys) of all installed software or windows patches (with detection of missing updates!). For software, a click on the i next to the name directly refers you to the directory where the software is installed. Another function also exists, is the frequency of use of the software, it marks you if you used it these last 7 days, between 7 and 90 days and more than 90 days! Basically, it allows you to see directly the programs you use the least or not at all, and possibly uninstall it.
In addition to this diagnosis, Belarc Advisor also assesses your computer's security level by detecting the validity of your Windows and antivirus updates. For further analysis, he launched the Center for Internet Security (CIS) Benchmark, an independent organization, and posted a detailed rating report (only for Windows 2000, Xp pro and 2003).
In short, a small free software to have under the elbow to know better his computer, and in place siW, Everest Ultimate, Sandra, ect … (which they provide you with too many details! lol For me, they are only useful for overclokeurs-and again, they will probably prefer other software- and to those who might want to change a piece of their computer …)
Alas, it is in English, but there is not much to understand ^^
