Belarc Advisor is a user-friendly software utility which will be able to scan your computer hardware and software configuration and generate a comprehensive report on the software and hardware status. It will alert you to missing critical Microsoft patches and updates, on the status of you antivirus, arrange useful computer benchmark tests, and much more. It will use the Center for Internet Security (CIS) benchmark test to give the computer a score letting you know on your PC overall security level, and will produce a final report, viewable in a Web browser.
Not only does it analyze software and operating system components and tell you where problems are, but in its detailed report it tells you what your computer's physical components are: not just how much RAM you have, for example, but what kind of RAM and which slots are occupied.
Although Belarc Advisor’s information covers everything imaginable, from network mapping and software versions to license keys and user accounts, almost all options have further rollover information, there is a guide to the symbols used in the report, and in some areas, such as system benchmarking, you can click though to new pages displaying both your results and explaining the tests.
The program is not engaged in fixing found issues, but it will provide a clear advice on how to address each problem. This download is free for personal use.
One more useful part of the Belarc Advisor is its ability to display the license keys for many popular applications (Adobe, CyberLink, Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Nero, and many other companies are supported). Print out the report, and keep it safe: if you lose the original CDs for an app then these details will save you a lot of hassle.
All of your PC profile information is kept private on your PC and is not sent to the developers’ web server.
