Softpedia Editor's Review for WinAudit Freeware
Perform a detailed audit of the hardware and software configuration of your computer
Written by Elena Opris on January 28th, 2013
WinAudit is a tiny tool that allows you to view useful information about your computer system. This kind of software comes in handy if you are thinking about upgrading your hardware, for instance.
WinAudit doesn't require any installation, so your Windows registry keys do not change. You can also store the program on an external device and run it from there.
The user interface of the program is simple to navigate through and actually a little more attractive than other similar products we have tested.
Once you initiate it, WinAudit will automatically list the software and hardware environment detailed information. So, you can view details about installed programs (including software updates), the operating system and connected peripherals.
In addition, you can view security data (e.g. Internet software, share permissions, system restore, Windows Firewall), groups and users, scheduled tasks, uptime statistics, error logs, Windows network, hardware devices and displays.
Furthermore, data is displayed about the BIOS version, system management, processors, memory, physical disks, drives, communication ports, startup programs, running programs.
If you click each category, WinAudit automatically opens its description page in the help file. You can also search text, change the font and text size, as well as select preferred language.
Besides the fact that you can save information in several formats (including PDF, HTML and TXT), you can also save only the upper memory, CPUID, GUID, disk, display or software details, or send a log file via email.
The program uses a low amount of system resources and comes with a well-drawn help file so it earns a spot on the list of recommendations.
