Collect system information

Does anyone know of any free software or script that can collect the following information to troubleshoot a computer issue.  This would also be useful for antivirus investigation.  I can find a program to do each item separately but I need something simple that an end user can just run and send back the log file.

System Info
Installed Apps
Running Processes
Windows version, service pack installed
.net version
firewall settings
antivirus software status
autoruns apps

Hi Kurt4949,

There's two programs that I know that can scan your computer to tell you about certain formation about your computer, like which Windows version, service pack installed and so on. I don't know if this is what you meant or wanted.
Here's the link to the two:
SIW - System Information for Windows is freeware that gives all the information you want.

The freeware version only allows a html report to be generated though.  To generate a text report you need to get the paid version.


Also Belarc Advisor and Hijack This will give the same information but it would be in 2 reports.

Actually I think a batch file to collect the info would be better if it's even possible.

Belarc advisor is a decent option;

Belarc advisor seems pretty nice.  Too bad it's not for commercial use and you can't even buy it if you wanted to.  It does almost everything except show running processes and autoruns.  I can get that info using a couple sysinternal apps though.
You might find SYSINTERNALS helpful. It is a pretty robust free download from Microsoft that allows you to drill down into processes and dependecies.
