Geek Software of the Week: Belarc Advisor
This week I am highlighting a venerable utility that has been around and recommended by a lot of super guru geeks for years… the Belarc Advisor! This utility, once installed and run on your PC, will create a web display in your browser with a boat-load of info about your PC and it’s configuration!
“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.”
The info on hotfixes and security releases alone is worth the price… which, of course is FREE, by the way! DEWD! How cool is that?!?!
Hey, this is a great tool. Especially before you reinstal Windows or any MS Software. Did ya know Belarc will display your Product Keys! It does this for other software too. Cool stuff. Great for all those people who lost their product Keys.
Don’t forget those old PCs with no drivers installed. You can ID that hardware quick w/ Belarc.
From my experience working with Belarc, it is great!
