SIW – System Information for Windows

Hmm. Thanks (seriously) for the steer Cynthia ... but after a little research, I decided no thanks.

 

Full Disclosure:

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/6391/avoid-crapware-with-giveaway-of-the-day-free-software/

 

"You must install and register the software during a 24 hour giveaway period — after that you cannot reinstall .... sometimes they offer some decent programs for free. However, there is always a catch, they try to include crapware during the app install ... We’re not anti-GOTD as they sometimes have quality free commercial software. Just be careful not to install the extra junk if you don’t want it. You will be offered Software Informer and the bookmarks every time"

 

Only with the greatest reluctance will I install freeware that comes bundled with crapware, and even then only if I can deselect the crapware at install time, and if I have a suitable degree of trust in the freeware author. But the killer in this case (for me) is the fact that the GOTD installer will check with the GOTD website every time it runs, to verify that the relevant giveaway period hasn't expired. Ugh. There's no point in beginning a relationship with software you can't depend on - ability to reinstall is a must-have in the Windows world.

 

Ah well.

It's Freeware for personal home use, only for Pro/Techician version you have to pay for the extra options.

 

Download from Official site http://www.gtopala.com/ where not comes bundled with crap.
