Free PC Audit
Free PC Audit is an application which enables you to view various information about your computer's hardware and software.
The tool does not need to be installed, so Free PC Audit is portable. It means that you can place it on an external device, such as a USB flash drive, and directly run the executable file on any computer.
More importantly, there will be no changes made to your Windows registry keys.
The interface of the program consists of a standard window in which you can access three main areas - "System", "Software" and "Processes".
In "System" you can view parameters and their value, such as the host name, IP address, user name, description, operating system, service pack, Windows product ID and key, Internet Explorer version, model, BIOS, serial number, motherboard, processor, physical memory, memory slots, disk, logical drives, CD-ROM, video, monitor, multimedia, startup programs, and more.
The "Software" section allows you to view the version, product key, publisher, install date and size for each installed program. Evidently, in the last tab you can view all the processes which are currently running. In addition, you can copy a line or generate a report for each tab (in the TXT format).
The program takes up a very low amount of system resources and didn't freeze, crash or pop up errors during our tests. However, you cannot order the list according to the value, version, publisher, and so on.
All in all, Free PC Audit does not offer the detailed system information we had expected but it is a straightforward tool. We suggest you give it a shot.
