Don't know if people already know about this, but there is a freeware program called Fresh Diagnose very similar in form and function to AIDA, SiSoft.......the usual slew of info about your system internals, programs, hardware, etc. It's free, and a new version (ver 6) was just released a few days ago. I think you have to get a code from them to activate it proper and although it arrives pretty quickly in the email, some people might be loathe to give them some basic information just to get free software. Your call on that one......the software itself is pretty decent, and similar to AIDA in the kind of info it presents, except that I prefer AIDA's interface......no known spyware, at least none that AdAware, Spybot or Spycop could pickup after installation. It works without the code, though, and as far as I can tell, no diagnostic tool seems to be disabled without it, so I don't know if that whole code thing is to get personal info for some other reason. But I certainly have not seen any increase in spam after my own experience. You can get it at http://www.freshdiagnose.com/downfiles.html Perhaps the experts can post their comments on the software?
