Review Belarc Advisor
Belarc Advisor is an application that curiously does not have its interface, but runs directly, generating a compilation of information about all the elements related to your computer so that you can know it in detail. In effect, we are talking about a service that will show you, on the one hand, all the programs you have installed, and on the other, the hardware that your PC has.
As we said, Belarc Advisor is not an application with a form. Still, as soon as it collects all the information we have mentioned, it opens a new tab within our default browser, displaying it. Even, at least that has happened to us in our tests in which we already had the browser open; it simply appears there is a second accompanying the other tabs.
Anyway, you have to be completely calm, because the data obtained by Belarc Advisor is displayed in the browser, which does not mean that this information can be seen by anyone connected to your network. Its creator commented that the details are kept private on the PC and are not sent to any web server, so you have absolutely nothing to fear in this regard.
And what browsers is Belarc Advisor compatible with? Apparently, with most of those that we can get to be using on our computer right now, considering that in our tests we had as default Google Chrome, but also that its developers comment that it has support for others such as Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox or Opera, to point out some famous ones.
If you are wondering about the type of information that this application collects and displays, you should know that in general lines, it has to do with the details of your network connections, the status of your Windows operating system along with the warning about the lack of revisions of the same, the status of the antivirus that is protecting your computer at that moment, and other security parameters that can be very important in these cases.
In particular, we have found it very important to point out expressly when listing the different programs we have installed on our computer, which are those we have paid at the time of obtaining the license. That is to say, sometimes you forget that you paid for some software, delete it, and when you want to install it again you must pay again. Thanks to Belarc Advisor, that will not happen to you again.
At the same time, being a utility that pretends not to leave aside all the aspects related to the security of your PC, you have to know that it will show you which vulnerabilities have been detected at the moment of analyzing the computer. You must consider this because the risks shown by the program are generally the most serious ones, and it would be convenient to take measures against them as soon as possible.
Even, already doing more work than it should, Belarc Advisor is in charge of showing you a series of packages specially designed to correct the different bugs that may have been detected during the analysis. If you want to make room on your hard drive because you think you already have too many applications installed, Belarc Advisor will also become a luxury ally, since it will show you which are the ones you use the most and the least daily. In this way, you will have a precise assistant that will allow you to uninstall those programs you usually do not take advantage of and start making some room on your computer.
Another super interesting aspect is that it is compatible with absolutely any version of the Windows operating system, no matter how old your computer is, or if it has Windows 10 recently installed. On the other hand, it also works with Microsoft operating systems in their 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so do not hesitate to install it because it surely has support for your PC.
Unlike what usually happens when we analyze the interface of the different applications we test, we have to say that in this particular case, we find ourselves with a program that is impossible to review from that point of view. Instead, let's just say that the tab with the information that opens in our browsers is very easy to read, which we appreciate as users.
Belarc Advisor is probably one of the best alternatives you can consider downloading for free if you have long wanted to know the details about all the programs you have installed on your hard drive. And also remember that it will show you all the data related to the hard parts of your PC, so you will find a complete tab as we show you in the screenshots along with this review.
