The problem with a lot of software designed to tell you what is happening on your computer is that it is usually written for someone who could probably find out without using the utility. LookInMyPC tries to do something about that.

Certainly there is only so much simplification to be made about what is happening within your computer; they are by their very nature technical. However, this utility seems to be written with the non-expert in mind.

Installation is very simple with a single dialog box for the interface. From this one dialog box you just select the reports you want to run (or alternatively run them all, it is fairly quick) and determine if you want to display the report immediately in Internet Explorer, or have it emailed to an external address. This feature itself makes it perfect for anyone doing any remote computer support for a relative.

Next to a number of the terms and reference made in the report are hyperlinks to Google searches on the term or a Wikipedia page.

The utility is free and part of the report displays some advertising, but it is fairly unobtrusive and doesn’t detract from the report at all.
