Post Everest Home Alternative?
For a couple years now, I have been using the free Everest Home Edition to find information about people's computers when working on them. Now the software has been discontinued and it is quite a slow-down.
Are there any programs similar to this?
My favorite part was the ability to create a long report and then email it (HTML format) so that I could help over the internet.

I figure that Everest will be useful for at least a year or two and if the need arises for something better, I will buy the commercial version of Everest or search for another free program. Someone is bound to provide another within the next few years.

Belarc isn't too bad either.

Oh yes, but will you go installing the single-liscensed commercial version on all of your clients' computers?
What about asking someone over the internet to download a commercial program?

I hope things turn out good.

Have you ever seen or heard of SIW? I haven't had the time to work with it in-depth yet, so I'm not sure how feature-rich it is compared to Everest.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

I'll keep looking.

Aparenty AIDA32 is the replacement for Everest Home and it is free. There SiSoft's SANDRA which is handy.

No, Avvy, AIDA32 was replaced by Everest, which is now discontinued.

Ahh, both good programs
Problem solved, but I'm not marking it as solved because I may get more replies (always up for new news).

Just had a download and quick gander at PCWizard. This appears to be a very good program with even more features than Everest.

If it is better than Everest, I will have to give it a try.
