Editors' review

Computer components can sometimes be mysterious things, and getting a comprehensive look at a computer's characteristics can be a time-consuming task. WinAudit simplifies this process by creating thorough reports that outline everything about your machine: hardware, software, memory, processors, and much, much more.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive. Simply click the Audit button and wait a few minutes, and WinAudit produces a lengthy report that can be e-mailed, printed, or saved in a variety of different formats. You can customize the contents of the report before running the audit as well; simply select what you want to include from an options menu that contains 35 categories for auditing, including security, error logs, scheduled tasks, and network BIOS. The program's built-in Help file is well-written and thorough, explaining all aspects of what WinAudit does. We also liked it that the program is compact and runs without installation; it would be a great addition to a USB toolkit for diagnosis and troubleshooting. WinAudit has the capacity to provide copious amounts of information that users may not know what to do with, but for those who do, this could be an extremely valuable utility. Even workers with little computer knowledge could run WinAudit and send the results off to their IT person for review, a capability that could save a lot of time and frustration for everyone involved.

WinAudit comes as a ZIP file and runs after extraction. We recommend this program to all users.

    Pros

    If you want to know everything that is on your computer, and i mean everything in great detail and lots of information, Win Audit 2.29 is the utility program to get, it took my two hours just to skim the surface of all the information that win audit gave me, the interface is easy to navigate through and the program comes in a zip file.

    Cons

    none i saw

    Summary

    Win Audit is the best utility that i have seen for getting information about your computer, the information you get is so much, it can get a little overwhelming, but in a good way if your a tech head like me

    "Does what it's meant to."

    October 20, 2011   |   By cindysdad

    Version: WinAudit 2.29

    Pros

    I down loaded it for just one thing, to find out how long my system had been up and running since I had performed some minor fixes. But it produces a ton of information which could very well come in handy next time I have problems. Interesting feature is that you can export all the data in different formats including to an Excel type spread sheet. Might very well come in handy for either tracking or sending of to Tech Support, my son.

    Cons

    Can't think of any.

    "Didn't report all my hard drives = unacceptable"

    February 01, 2011   |   By Darwa

    Version: WinAudit 2.28.2

    Pros

    It's free (but potentially useless)

    Cons

    It didn't report all my hard drives, and that makes me wonder what else it's missing out...

    Summary

    I have 3 hard drives. 1 x 1tb internal, 1 x 500gb internal, and 1 x 1tb external. This program didn't report the 500gb internal, and after noticing that 'small' overlook, I can't possibly put any faith in anything that it says.

    I'll be sticking with SIW by Gabriel Topala.

    "In-depth system info with an easy to use user interface"

    October 29, 2009   |   By ddas77

    Version: WinAudit 2.27

    Pros

    Fast, light-weight, easy to use, comprehensive system info, reports in various file formats, runs from anywhere, no installation or unstallation.

    Cons

    "Find files" searches only the local drives. You'll find other cons when you begin using it to assist you in problem solving.

    Summary

    WinAudit is a software programme that audits Windows® based personal computers. Just about every aspect of computer inventory is examined. The report is displayed as a web page, which can be saved in a number of standard formats. You can e-mail it to your technical support or even post the audit to a database for archiving. When used in conjunction with its command line functionality, you can automate inventory administration at the network level. WinAudit supports the remote desktop and pre-installation environments.

    The programme is easy to use and is a single file that requires no installation. WinAudit is designed to produce a comprehensive audit with one click of a button, ensuring results are obtained in the minimum possible time. The programme is small and self-contained; it can be run from a floppy diskette, USB drive or sent by e-mail enabling you to audit just about any Windows® computer with virtually no effort in a few seconds.

    There are two different executables for Unicode (WinAuditU.exe) and non-Unicode (WinAudit.exe) versions.

    "Comprehensive info, easy-to-use."

    May 18, 2009   |   By RayGauthier

    Version: WinAudit 2.27

    Pros

    So easy to run, yet so customizable. Incredibly comprehensive report of both hardware and software components. Great to document a laptop in the event of its loss. Reports produced in text, pdf, even worksheet format.

    Cons

    Can't think of ANY.

    Summary

    On a personal level, I use WinAudit about once a year to document my home systems (a couple of desktops and laptops). The information would be great for insurance purposes in the event of a loss. At the office I use it to document our corporate systems as required by law.
