There's a couple of scripts on here, but Spiceworks is one of the larger "tools" I guess?
Free Network Inventory & PC Software Inventory Tool from Spiceworks
I used to have a piece of software that did this but i can't for the life of me remember what it's called...
I want a some software that i can set to can the network for all PCs that are turned on and give me detailed information on CPU, ram and quantity, hard disk size (and make/type if possible) and so on. Can anyone recommend one? Ideally free but if it's cheap I'm not adverse to paying a bit for something decent that'll give me all the info i could ever need.
EDIT: And no client software involved please, just want something that'll scan away quite happily from my desktop.
^^ What he said
Just giving spiceworks a go, just installed it and finding that everything is showing up as "en, naigation, community, title" rather than just saying "community" for example, what could be causing the messed up look? Tried IE and Chrome.
Tried spiceworks, but it's too slow and clunky and there's far more to it than i need. The program i used previously was very quick and simple, albeit it wasn't free and could only scan 15 PCs at a time i think unless it was purchased, any ideas which one i might be thinking of?
It had a similar look to The Dude and ManagePC but it wasn't either of those either.
EDIT: I should add that i don't even need to to show me what software is on the PCs, i need it purely for a hardware inventory only.
EDIT2: Not lansweeper either, that's more expensive than what i was looking at i think. Though lansweeper does look quite good with its change tracking.....
EDIT3: FOUND IT! although seems it's a lot more expensive than i remember http://www.komodolabs.com/products_overview.shtml think i'll look elsewhere then seeing as i only want something simple, maybe lansweeper might be a good bet in that case.
EDIT4: struggling to find anything free that ticks all the boxes for what i want, this one is only £360 for unlimited nodes though: http://www.clearapps-software.com/ don't really want to spend any money on this though when we've already effectively got hardware inventorying in SCCM.....just doesn't display anything in the way i want it to and if the client isnt installed properly that's an issue too, grrr

The Freeware version does what you need it to, and a single line in your login script keeps it refreshed however, for all the toys you will have to pay £245 pa. Is it worth it? Try it and see.
I use the Freeware version on several sites and it's really useful.
Does a bat with this help?
psinfo @D225.txt> PCquery.csv
PS tools installed to same directory as bat. @D225.txt is a file with the names of the PCs in the lab.
PCquery is the name of the output from PSinfo.
This runs from my desktop and you can create a bat for each lab/office.
WMI will give you alot of info as well
We use lansweeper here, all the script is for is to trigger the scan, doesn't slow anything down on logon. I find it really good.
