     This program provides a lot of information about your computer. Most of the information is harvested using the .NET Framework 2.0 or the WMI classes accessible through the Framework. This version is a major upgrade from the original submission. A lot of code has been cleaned up and most existing panels have been enhanced in some way. There are 4 new panels: Installed Programs, Services, Startup Programs, and Users. This project is also available in C# and because I did not use any language features specific to Visual Basic in this version, they are quite similar. The idea for using the panels is not mine. I modified some code from a Microsoft sample. This update has been converted for VS2008 and includes some additional features including support for 64-bit versions of Windows.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
