Is there a way to see how much RAM is installed on a network computer without having to physically be at the computer?  Remote Desktop is not an option.

FIMC: My suggestion above will allow you too access many computers without a problem. However, if you try to access a Server or another computer which require you to have Admin rights, it will give you an error.

In this case, mastoo's way would be a lot better because it has command line switches to provide an Admin Username and Password.

Thanks mastoo, I didn't know about this command line, but now realize how handy this is.

Both ways worked for me so I will split the points between mastoo and pzozulka.  Thanks for the help!
