Get A Free PC Audit With Belarc Advisor

O. James Samson - March 27, 2007

1042897635-1mini.jpgNeed reliable software to advise you on the state of your installed software and hardware? This software may be just what you need, it’s called Belarc Advisor.

Belarc Advisor builds a detailed profile of your installed software and hardware, including Microsoft Hotfixes, anti-virus status etc and displays the results in your Web browser. The really cool thing about the way Belarc Advisor works is that all your PC profile information is kept private on your PC and is not sent to any web server.

One thing I like about Belarc Advisor is that, unlike other software that the publishers leave to figure things on your own, on the official site [] the publishers have an FAQ section that can help you enjoy the software easily.

For example, if you have a question like: “The Advisor has installed and finished a discovery of my PC’s hardware and software, but I do not see any results”.

On the site, you will find a great answer like:

“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.

Really making things easier right?

Want to check out the software? Did I fail to mention that it’s free!!! Yeah it’ll cost you $0.

Go to to see for yourself what it’s all about and get a free download.
