Belarc Advisor analyzes software, hardware, and OS components, as well as security configurations, and can tell you exactly where the problems are, if any, on your computer. The program was easy to install and does not come bundled with any additional software.

Upon installation, Belarc Advisor immediately checks for updates and asks your permission to download them. It then informs you that it needs administrator access to your computer in order to provide a comprehensive profile of the system. Scanning your computer takes only a minute or two. The program uses your browser to present information and does not allow the information to go out over a server. It actually gives you information that your computer can easily give you but then takes it a few steps further by listing each component in your computer, the model numbers, serial numbers, and status of each piece of hardware. It then lists network information, missing security updates, and every piece of software installed. It gives advice on which software may no longer be useful based on how often you use it. The best feature is the program's list of software license numbers. The presentation of data is intuitive and easy to follow.

Belarc Advisor is a delight to use, especially for expert users who want to know every detail about their computer. Novice users may find the sheer amount of information daunting, but if they need work done on their computer or wish to upgrade, the information provided by this program is not just desirable, but necessary.
