    "Works like a Charm!!!"

    September 19, 2014   |   By regghen

    Version: Belarc Advisor 8.4

    Pros

    I displays all OEM keys that are present on the system. It even displayed keys I had no idea existed! As an IT project manager, I would highly recommend this app for IT professionals that need to capture needed system data.

    Cons

    None to report.

    "Great product"

    September 10, 2014   |   By adutchbrew

    Version: Belarc Advisor 8.4

    Pros

    Gave me so much more info than I expected.
    Download, install and collection of info took very little time.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any right now

    Summary

    This program really gives you so much more info than sysinfo32 or other ways you can obtain info out of your computer for the effort it takes.

    "Very comprehensive PC software analysis"

    March 06, 2014   |   By mhgreenfield

    Version: Belarc Advisor 8.4

    Pros

    Gives a detailed listing of all downloaded programs, update history, missing patches and updates, and the condition of your computer as far as virus vulnerabilities.

    Cons

    The Windows security update Belarc said I needed was not applicable and would not download. The message I received was "this program is not needed for your computer."

    Summary

    As far as I'm concerned the jury is still out. The Updated pages from the manufacturers and Microsoft do a better job of scanning programs for out of date versions.

    "will tell you everything about your computer"

    March 02, 2014   |   By gunshypete

    Version: Belarc Advisor 8.4

    Pros

    fast download
    no toolbars and other junk
    very clean, very reputable

    Cons

    it didn't know how to fix me a cup of coffee

    Summary

    In my top 3 utility programs since I began using computers
    1. Glary Utilities
    2. Malwarebyte's Antimalware
    3. Belarc Advisor

    Don't know your product key to activate windows on new computer from same disk? Belarc will show it to you. Want more ram but don't know what kind? Belarc will show it to you. This is the best information retiever you're going to find most likely.

    "Detailed summary of a computer -what it has and needs."

    February 06, 2014   |   By fauna99

    Pros

    Presents a very complete picture of your computer. Using on 4 different computers- 3 Windows versions- and it details each and shows what might be missing.

    Cons

    It does take a long time to load and gather info.

    Summary

    Easy to understand with no need to have great computer skills to read.

    "Very informative summary of what is on the computer."

    January 01, 2014   |   By billie4320

    Version: Belarc Advisor 8.4

    Pros

    Very organized. Complete with explanations of what is OK, what is not so OK and generally how to make fixes.

    Cons

    I think this formal analysis is more directed to a commercial business user and many comments and "fixes" may not be applicable to a casual residential user.

    Perhaps the specific areas that a Casual user should address could be emphasized in the analysis output?

    "Just what I needed to list installed programs"

    December 28, 2013   |   By HauteHouse

    Version: Belarc Advisor 8.4

    Pros

    Easy to run
    Comprehensive info

    Cons

    Can't print summary report from screen or save to a file. Adding this feature would make it a 5-star program.

    Summary

    Provides a full list of all installed programs and additional info on computer system. Extremely helpful! Great to have all this info in one location.

    "All the info you'll ever need!"

    December 26, 2013   |   By dminott

    Version: Belarc Advisor 8.4

    Pros

    A complete dossier of your computer and its software load.
    An invaluable source of what you have and what you may be missing!
    Print this info out and save it for future reference.

    Cons

    Wish it would automatically save its run to a file.

    Summary

    Be sure to run it each time you make a major change to your software...either additions or deletions!
