Belarc Advisor builds a detailed profile of your installed software and hardware

If you have a Macintosh you already have "Apple System Profiler" built in.

Belarc Advisor - Free Personal PC Audit (Version 7.2t)

The Belarc Advisor builds a detailed profile of your installed software and hardware, missing Microsoft hotfixes, anti-virus status, CIS (Center for Internet Security) benchmarks, and displays the results in your Web browser. All of your PC profile information is kept private on your PC and is not sent to any web server.

    * Operating Systems: Runs on Windows Vista, 2003, XP, 2000, NT 4, Me, 98, and 95.
    * Browsers: Requires IE 3 or Netscape 3, and higher versions. Also runs on Opera, Mozilla, and Firefox.
    * File size: 1453 KB.
    * License: The license associated with this product allows for free personal use only. Use on multiple PCs in a corporate, educational, military or government installation is prohibited.
    * The Belarc Advisor will automatically install, build a profile of your hardware and software, and display this in your Web browser.


Q: Will the Belarc Advisor send my PC profile information up to a web server?

A: No. The Belarc Advisor creates a local Web page and does not send up your PC profile to a Web server or anywhere else. For more info on Privacy, please click here.

Q: Must any previously installed Belarc Advisor be removed before installing a newer version?

A: No. The installer will automatically remove any previous Belarc Advisor version.

Q: Why don't I see the CIS (Center for Internet Security) benchmark?

A: The CIS has developed security benchmarks for Windows 2000, XP Professional and 2003 versions. There are currently no CIS benchmarks for Vista, XP Home or 95/98/Me versions of Windows.

Q: The Advisor has installed and finished a discovery of my PC's hardware and software, but I do not see any results.

A: Check that Windows is set to open files with the HTML extension in your web browser. To do this, in the Folder Options windows control panel look at the File Types tab. Select the HTML Document file type and check that it opens with your preferred web browser.

If that doesn't work for you, open this file:

    c:\Program Files\Belarc\Advisor\System\tmp\(COMPUTERNAME).html

(where COMPUTERNAME is the name of your PC) using the File|Open... menu in your web browser.
