Kaspersky is one of most well known antivirus vendors around. Yet very few people are aware of a little gem called Kaspersky GetSystemInfo (GSI). You may have heard about HijackThis. Kaspersky GSI is somewhat similar but much more advanced.
Kaspersky GSI doesn’t require any installation (portable tool) but in Windows Vista (and Seven) you must assign it Administrator Privileges. Using the GetSystemInfo client is extremely simple. It scans your computer and logs data required to diagnostic purposes including Background Processes and Services, Drivers and Ports, Installed Programs and Registry. The configuration options allow you to fine tune the report generated by Kaspersky GetSystemInfo.
Once you have finished generating the report visit the online GSI Parser to get a detailed overview of your system. The GSI Parser creates an easy to understand report using the data collected by GSI utility. It highlights any possible malwares (virus/trojan horse/spyware/adware etc), suspicious files, out of date applications and drivers and other potentially problematic areas.
The data collected by GetSystemInfo is comprehensive and is ideal for getting a quick overview of the current condition of the system. The GSI Parser does an awesome job of making sense of the data collected by GSI. It’s ideal for posting in support forums or emailing to your techie friend while requesting assistance regarding your system.
