If you have ever performed troubleshooting on your system, you must know that the first thing you need in order to fix the problem is your system information. You have to know what you are dealing with before you can start fixing it. Previously, we have covered some very good System Information tools, such as Speccy (an advanced system information tool providing complete information abou the system to the users), SIW (System Information for Windows), and BGInfo, a tool from Microsoft Technet that displays information about the system. There is even a screen saver featured on AddictiveTips called UsefulSaver, that displays important system information when the computer is in idle state. Today, we have another system information tool for you, Kiwi System Info, that lets you browser through system information related to specific hardware components and system settings. You can view system information of different hardware and software components according to categories, including Hardware Info, Data Storage, Memory, Network, User & Security etc. Read on to find out more about Kiwi System Info.
It provides you with detailed system information neatly divided into separate tabs, for each category, at the top. The main interface of Kiwi System Info has Hardware Info, Data Storage, Memory, System Info, Network, User & Sercurity, Developer and All tabs at the top. They allow you to easily locate the required component for viewing the related system information. Click each tab to reveal the list of system components related to the category.

Under each tab, there are different categories further simplifying the process of locating a component. For instance, in User & Security tab, there are Account, Account SID, NT Log Event, Security Settings, System Users etc categories available to choose from.

The application displays a lot of detail about each selected category. A minor issue with Kiwi System Info is that if the list is very long, the program will take some time in populating it, and might even go into Not Responding mode for a little while. Hopefully the developer can improve the stability of the application in the next release. The application works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
