In our company we have have many computers that are connected to the main Domain. We need to do an audit to see what software is installed on which computers. Basically I need to see a list of softwares that's installed on all pc's. Rather than physically checking each pc, what other methods are available? Our company Software Project Manager told me that there is a software that can be installed on the server which would tell me the list of softwares of each connected computer. But he doesn't remember it's name.

There are a number of different applications that you can use.  The Microsoft Systems Center might have some or all of what you're looking for.  One of the applications that I've personally used that's good at auditing is Track-It.  Track-It not only has auditing capabilities but it is really a full-fledged Help Desk software package.  If you're interested, go to http://www.numarasoftware.com.

Thought of another one, with a different approach, called Spiceworks - www.spiceworks.com.  Great thing about it is that it's FREE!
