Displays a range of system information about processes, installed drivers, add-ons and connections. Creates registry and file snapshots so they can be compared with earlier data to better track system changes. Apart from the installer, the program is also available as portable software.
Displays all information about a PC’s graphics cards and processors and validates the results. Supports NVIDIA and ATI cards with no installation necessary. Also available as a special version for Radeon-HD-4830 cards, which displays the shader unit count (necessary because of a BIOS bug).
Displays and logs the temperature of Intel's Singlecore, Dualcore, Quadcore and i7 processors. Not only provides information about the absolute temperature but indicates how far this is from the recommended maximum. Enables you to run scripts and programs depending on processor temperature.
Monitors important motherboard features such as power, temperature (CPU, hard disks via S.M.A.R.T. and graphics cards) and cooling fan speed, and displays the results in an easy-to-read format. Portable version also available.
Integrity test for data media, especially for recognising USB sticks that have been tampered with. Since the end of 2007, 1GB sticks have been sold as 2GB or 4GB versions; this tool identifies their true capacity. Fast and secure download from The H

Cross-platform system tool for reading and editing configurations of PCI devices. Based on the portable library libpci which provides access to the PCI configurations for almost all major operating systems.
Expanded Device Manager for Windows with which you can simultaneously remove several devices from the system. Offers detailed information about installed hardware, drivers or services, and enables you to control many hardware, software, service-related and process-related operations from one program.
Also known as 'S.M.A.R.T. Monitoring Tools', this consists of two tools (smartctl and smartd) for monitoring HDD properties via the S.M.A.R.T. system integrated into modern hard drives. Warns the user in advance about drive errors to avoid irretrievable data loss. Monitored parameters include temperature, read errors and data throughput. Fast and secure download from The H
Displays information about the temperatures of all processors present in a computer system and saves the data in a log file so the user can observe trends over time. The 64-bit version can be downloaded from here.
Displays (internal or external) hard disk and USB drive data, for example, size, type, bus, transfer standard, partitions, S.M.A.R.T. values, S.M.A.R.T. logs, MBR, VBR for P-ATA, S-ATA, USB and SCSI. Fast and secure download from The H
Software-based test program for CUDA-enabled graphics cards. Uses a range of standard test templates to check that the GPU memory is operating correctly. Some of the tests are based on the popular MemTest tool. Download requires registration.
Uses available processor capacity to search for unknown Mersenne primes; receives its tasks from the PrimeNet server with which it exchanges small amounts of data (hundreds of bytes a week); does not require a continuous internet connection; can also be used to run stability tests, for example on over-clocked Intel processors.
Benchmark and information tool for hard disks. Free for private use. The Pro version adds saving of error logs, secure data deletion, AAM, a cache test, additional checks and support for external drives.
Uses Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to display comprehensive system and process information, as well as the entire set of WMI management classes, objects and their properties, even from remote computers. Executes WMI Query Language (WQL) queries and displays the corresponding results.
