Computer Census is a program for computer professionals for
diagnosing problems. What it does is it finds out everything about a computer
and outputs that information to both a text file and a Microsoft Access file.
Did I say "Everything about a Computer" yep that's what I said and I mean it.
Here is what LAD Enterprizes Inc says:
Computer Census is a System Information Utility that reports more than 200 key
data points: Manufacturer, BIOS, OS, CPU, RAM, Motherboard, Chassis, Drives,
Mouse, Keyboard, Port Connections, COM and LPT Ports, USB, SCSI, Modem, Audio,
Monitor, Video, Printers, Network Settings, System and Network Services,
Protocols, Network Adapters, Shared Resources, Drivers, Registered Software
Packages and Applications, Hot Fixes and Service Packs.
And it gets better. First of for the home-user, for you it essentially free.
(Free to inventory up to 3 computers sequentially in a session) Next is the size
of the program, it will fit on a floppy.
For the Professional Technician or IT department's with smaller networks it
should be cause for jumping up and down with joy. There are three reasons why,
it can inventory remote computers, in other words it can inventory a whole
network at once, the inventory (the amount of information) is incredible, and it
is really, really fast! It did my entire computer system with 4 drives and
terabyte of storage in less than a minute.
The support is really good too. There is a great pdf manual, plus a Help in the
In conclusion Computer Census is Great!
