Windows 7: Need replacement for aged Belarc Advisor

Need replacement for aged Belarc Advisor

I notice that Belarc Advisor still uses buggy Wise Installation Wizard which lately tends to fail uninstall with a log error solved here: [SOLVED] Could not open install.log file while uninstalling | The _khAttAm_ blog

I'd like to replace it in Clean Reinstall tutorial with another through System Info tool that also audits all installed Product Keys, most importantly Office. Can anyone suggest the most modern one which provides this fuller auditing capability?

Belarc Advisor - Free Personal PC Audit, for software, hardware and security configuration information on your computer. Software license management, IT asset management, cyber security audits, and more. Advisor Version: 8.4
I've noticed times where Disk Cleanup appears to delete .log files for various programs, does make uninstalling more difficult but I haven't had a problem with Advisor yet.

When I check Belarc Adviser it checks for updates.
I just tried it and it updated to 2015.4.24.1 then opened and gave all the information.

Re: Licences & Product Keys. I tend to use this: Download recALL - MajorGeeks

Re: Windows Updates and lots of other useful info - I tend to use SIW x64

Note: SIW x64 installs Open Candy unless you can block the Open Candy installer from running.

See the full thread here: A very useful program

If you like I can try reinstalling it using the MajorGeeks download link to see if it's a clean download.

Edit: Sorry, just realised that you're asking for sofware to be included in your tutorial so SIW x64 won't be suitable as only advanced users will manage to clean install it!

Hardware & Software: Maybe take a look at WinAudit.
