That command was useful. Because I don't have enough reputations (only 1 as of now), am not able to vote up. Sorry for that. – Gnanam Oct 5 '10 at 13:04
No worries. Glad I could help. – Casual Coder Oct 5 '10 at 16:59

You can use PC Wizard from CPUID. For more information about your processor, you can use CPU-Z

right click My Computer > Properties to get the basic system configuration.
right click My Computer > Properties > Hardware >Device manager to get a little advanced configuration. On windows 7 also offers widgets which display system info like processor activity and RAM usage etc.

Here is another tool, which is just an EXE (no installation required), called System Spec.

Excerpts: System Spec - A Portable Freeware System Information Utility. System Spec gives you a complete specification and system information of your PC. This includes hardware, software and settings.

With System Spec you can see, save and print a complete spec of your PC. This standalone, system information utility can also perform various windows functions. Additional advanced info includes CPU, drives, applications, display, memory, networking, internet, CD / DVD drives and more.
