    Hey, i just found lansweeper and it looks good, even the free version, still need some heads up though as to if it is good or not.

    I use spiceworks in our school, but it's software scanning doesn't actually scan all the software that is installed on the pcs in the school hence why i'm looking at a separate tool for this. But the rest of spiceworks's features do a very good job indeed.

    Strange how Spiceworks isn't picking everything up. It works pretty well here...

    Lansweeper is not just an auditing tool, the full version includes the integration of a number of useful tools as well and the ability to integrate some of your own.

    Ive been using it for some time in serval locations and its proved to be extremely valuable and good starting point for a lot of maintenance checks.

    If a user calls the helpdesk we can locate which PC they are on without the usual misleading user interaction, RDP or VNC to it access the logs, drives, inventory, printers and configs all from the one screen.

    Yes there are dozens of other tools out there that will do the same job some costing a lot more money.

    I would advise that anyone interested should install the free version to try it out and if you like it, the £140 is cheap for what it does as a helpdesk/maintenance aid.
