Everest Ultimate Edition is extensive system diagnostic and report generator that suffers from a major operation flaw. Its file-tree interface makes it very simple to find and view information about your system. The program expects a certain amount of user experience. Individual system items are not explained, although simple function operation is covered in the help file.
Everest Ultimate Edition will list most of the facts about your system. Separating your system into 15 areas, it quickly, and with few resources, lists the details of your hardware and much of your software. With just a click, you can find your CPU, motherboard, and operating system information. Without opening your PC, this app can list your PCI devices and their operating states. Where this program both shined and failed was in its report-writing functions. The quick reports were as speedy as promised. Select system information is captured and a report is written in a few seconds in either text or HTML format. However, our testers found the full system Report Wizard would run amok. The wizard would generate reports for every tested area of the system. Eventually, it would take almost all available system resources and crash itself and some other apps.
The demo disables display of some system information, but not too much to prevent you from accurately testing the program. It works well except for the Report Wizard function. Anyone in need of collecting detailed system information, and saving it in simple files, should give this flawed, but useful, diagnostic a chance.
