Any way to poll clients to see what version of Internet Explorer / Windows they are running?

I would like to find a way to poll all the clients on my network to see what version of Internet Explorer they are running, as well as what version of windows / Service Packs they have installed.  Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,
Mark

I can get you everything but the version of Internet explorer so far - and I'm sure I'll find out how to get that.

But it's all in VBScript, so if you're happy with that I'll post some code - just I don't want to write it all if you don't want anything to do with VBScript.

Sounds good!  Although Internet Explorer is the one I am most curious about.  But what you have would definitely be helpful.

save the following html page and run it in each client browser and it will display a response page that tells  you exactly what its environment is ( and believe me ,you will get much more information more than you imagine  ):

<html>
<body>
<script>
for(i in navigator)
document.write(i + ": " + eval("navigator."+i) + "<br>");
</script>
</body>
</html>

Thanks, but I am looking for more of a remote tool-- something like MBSA (Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer) that can report back with information about the client machine and software.

Here is another script but in a nice user interface so go ahead and surprise them

<HTML>
<HEAD></HEAD>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
function getBrowser()
{
var browser = navigator.appName
var version = navigator.appVersion
var version1 = version.substring(22,25)
var sop1 = version.substring(26,37)
var version2 = version.substring(0,3)
var sop2 = version.substring(11,16)
if ( browser== "Microsoft Internet Explorer" )
{
   alert("You are using the "+browser+", version "+version1+", with"+sop1+"!");  
}
if ( browser=="Netscape" )
{
alert("You are using the "+browser+", version "+version2+", with"+sop2+"!");
}
if ( browser!="Netscape" && browser!="Microsoft Internet Explorer")
{
alert("You are using the "+browser+", version "+version+", with"+sop1+"!");
}
}
</SCRIPT>
<BODY>
   <INPUT TYPE=button value = "Get Browser Info" onclick="getBrowser()">
</BODY>
</HTML>

ok then you can try http://downloads-zdnet.com.com/Alchemy-Network-Inventory/3000-2085_2-10287905.html?tag=lst-0-1

Network Administrators use this tool to inventory computers in the corporate networks for the software and hardware configuration, generate software licenses reports, etc. The program does not require the client module to be installed on each individual workstation, but can be configured to inventory all network computers by only copying the files to a single shared folder on a file server.

License: Free to try, $199.00 to buy
