Any recommendations greatly appreciated.

Great! Thanks for the tips... they both look good.... still looking for a good benchmarking program that gives info on cpu, memory, hard drive, internet and network connections to see if they are running as good as they should be and how they compare to what is out there....


The ones that you gave me though look useful...

Thanks again!

Thanks so much... these are great.... I am getting back into doing system audits for home, small, and medium sized businesses, and needed to upgrade my tools.... figured this was the fastest way to see what is the latest and greatest.

Ofcourse my favourite statement for clients is "Well... we have sort of been slacking on doing the backups..." When will people learn....

You're quite welcome.

MAYBE, about the time their system crashes, and they lose EVERYTHING. :)
