PCFerret Review

Sven Sorensen
An all-around system information app with several modules like hardware components, system reports and analysis
A review of PCFerret by Sven Sørensen

PCFerret is a free program (helped by Kickstarter) which provides a number of system diagnostics for your PC. Virtually all of the diagnostics are quickly collected and include details about hardware components on your system and software installed.

Some of the main information collected by PCFerret includes the name of the PC it's being run on, public and local IP address, software installed, details about the operating system and driver details. In terms of hardware installed, PCFerret will include details about your CPU, main-board, graphics, sound card, network and printers installed.

After grabbing system details, PCFerret also includes some additional modules which provide additional functionality like a file search engine, a file analysis tool, a reboot report, password generator and several others. The list of modules continues to grow as PCFerret gains popularity.

All-in-all, PCFerret is a very interesting system diagnostics tool which takes a completely different approach compared to what we've seen in the past decade and good to have not just for its diagnostic tools, but also for the growing list of free modules available.
