Technicians who are troubleshooting PC issues or errors often need to use a tool that can provide them with extensive information about the computer system’s hardware and software. We have reviewed many programs in both categories in the past including Speccy, PC Wizard or Driver View in the hardware category and Hijack This, Autoruns or Process Monitor in the software category.
Look In My PC is a mix of both categories as it generates a report that combines hardware and software information.
The computer program displays a list of report options upon startup. All options are selected by default. They range from antivirus information over cpu and bios information to open network connections and the users of the system.
The report generation takes about a minute if all options are selected. The generated report will be created as a local html file that is opened in Internet Explorer, even if another web browser is the default system browser.
The information provided in the report are extensive. They range from specific hardware information like the motherboard and cpu manufacturer to the motherboard model, bios version or system memory and their capacity.
Software makes up most of the default report. The program lists default browser and email client information, open desktop applications, installed hotfixes, all installed programs with links to perform a Google search, installed services and information about them as well as the running processes and Registry run entries.
The report can also be generated and emailed which is handy in a remote session or if another person wants to take a look at the report.
Look In My PC has still some quirks. The report looks out of line for instance.Â The program did not detect the installed antivirus software on the test system and opened the report in Internet Explorer although it detected Firefox as the default system browser.
Look In My PC can be downloaded from the developer’s website. It is compatible with all versions of Microsoft Windows from Windows 2000 to Windows 7.
