    A program that checks my system

    I'm trying to check my friend's computer to see exactly what programs he has on it and what all his configurations are. I actually have to do this to a few of his computers. Is there a way other than going into Add/Remove software and sorting through the control panel to find out all this information. Is there any software that automatically does this?

    Thanks

    If those machines have "Windows Machine Instrumentation" enabled on them (Which is most likely with modern Windows systems) then you could write a simple VB-Script that will generate a list of programs for you. I'm not exactly sure about how to do it, but if you google for "WMI+VBS" then you might find some useful stuff.

    For software analysis you might try this:
