AIDA32 / AIDA64 - replacement suggestion
« on: October 22, 2013, 04:49:11 PM »

Has anyone ever used AIDA32?    If so you will know about how useful of a tool it was. (suite of tools).
Its not just a benchmarker, its extremely useful for finding hidden system files, drivers and finds things in your system that you may not easily find elsewhere without trawling through the registry.

As my PC is now a year old and Ive just discovered an orphan startup item in msconfig I thought Id do a sweep up.   
Whilst aida32 is free, the cheapest aida 64 bit version is 40 and a bit steep for something I only use on the odd occasion. 

Anyone know of a similar free program for 64bit windows please that they can recommend?

Ive found a link for a 30 day trial, but it says its a limited version.
I dont know how 'limited' it is though.  Probably it will run, but not let you do any of the useful stuff

May install it in a bit and do a sweep anyhow.

Have you looked at SiSoft Sandra? There is a free version and the first commercial one is $50 (USD). Never used AIDA so have no idea if this is really equivalent.

Thanks guys.

I used to use sisoft before aida many years ago, but it didnt used to have as much info.   I may try it again as no doubt things will have improved in the past 10yrs :D

oh.. forgot about belarc.   :) Thank you
