Everest Home Edition is an excellent reporting tool. It can be particularly useful to generate reports which will provide information necessary to people trying to assist you with problems, or to inform yourself in your troubleshooting procedures.

Please refrain, however, from simply generating reports and posting them here simply for the sake of doing so. Full reports are rather sizeable, and they also contain sensitive information such as your CD key codes and the like. Be cautious with the information you provide publically. Review reports before you post them, no matter what utility you use to generate them, and remove personally identifiable or sensitive data first.

Understandable, got you.
