Read an in-depth analysis in our professional review for Belarc Advisor
Belarc Advisor is a full-featured system information application that scans your computer and displays in a web-based interface a comprehensive report on the software and hardware components.
At first glance, many users will be tricked into believing that this is a tool designed for experts, but the application is actually aimed at beginners and professional users alike.
Belarc Advisor not only displays everything about your computer, but also comes with some extra goodies. For example, it scans the operating system and displays the installed updates and hotfixes, with a direct link to the official Microsoft page, where you can find support and documentation.
During our test we couldn't help notice the abundance of information this tool can provide. For example, only for the registered user accounts, Belarc Advisor can show you not only which are the privileges for every one of them, but also the number of times they logged in.
There's also a detailed report on the software solutions installed on your computer, showing even the usage of every single entry, along with version and a complete file inventory.
Since it's just a webpage hosted on your computer, Belarc Advisor doesn't stress hardware resources at all. You won't see much activity unless you reopen the application, as it scans the machine every time it loads.
That being said, Belarc Advisor is certainly one of the most easy to use system information tools. More so, since the interaction is minimal and the results are displays in a mater of moments, less experienced users will get along just fine with it.
