Windows 7: What software do you use to ID Hardware?

What software do you use to ID Hardware?

I've seen many members have problem ID'ing their hardware.
About a month ago someone link to a nice beta program that gave a nice rundown of all the hardware on ones computer.
I'm trying to remember or find the link but just don't remember the name or subject.

It was a free program like Everest but not that much detail and was Beta.
Your help and assistance is greatly appreciated.

I'm always careful about what I use to ID now. Last November, a friend sent me an article about some of these ID programs making people's Windows activation keys available to be searched for on the 'net.

Yikes...

Another vote for Belarc Security Advisor.
Belarc Advisor - Free Personal PC Audit

Although all the info you need is already built-in, especially for those conversant in PowerShell.

I consider Belarc Security Advisor a must-have when I have to install/rebuild a system.

Another nice free tool is LookInMyPC

It generates a nice html table for selected hw and sw categories.
