Dr. Hardware 2000 shareware_button.jpg (766 bytes)  

Dr. Hardwares tradition of precise computer analysis is going to be continued under Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4 and 2000 now. Against other system information tools that are operating under Windows, Dr. Hardware gets its results not only by inquiring registry settings but also partially through BIOS calls, I/O port accesses and register manipulation what is sometimes a difficult job under Windows. As a result of that you get what can be detected independent of the operating system. The major advantage of this concept is that Dr. Hardware provides very good analyzing results in cases where - for example - a component has not been correctly installed. Another true strength of this program is its high relevance.  You will find that its a real power tool and a good friend of your machine.
