    I am completely unfamiliar with MicroScope, how do you mean diagnostic software? Do you mean like Belarc or Sandra?

    I see...

    There are loads of programs that will do similar stuff, but MicroScope seems pretty comprehensive and I doubt you'll find anything free that will do all that in one package.

    PC Doctor is an excellent utility suite - similar to MicroScope I believe

    Interesting that they have a version for each platform. Although Micro 2000 can run from the desktop, it is doesn't matter what OS you have inside- i have run it with a motherboard on the workbench.

    I usually use Winternals ERD Commander 2005, and Ultimate boot CD, and sometimes Sisoft Sandra

    Winternals ERD Commander 2005 is from Winternals - a very famous small bunch of Windows experts. It isn't clear what will happen to their apps now M$ has bought them.

    Google for the Ultimate boot CD - it is very well known.
