Uninstallation is also easy and takes a few minutes. Go to Start Menu > Control Panel > Add or Remove Program and remove the program from there.

Reviews [Pros and Cons]

The software is tiny [only 2 MB] and does exactly what it is meant for! It showed up the correct information of my system in no time. Although it has some issue displaying the RAM frequency [May be because I was using Windows7 which is not supported officially by CPU-Z] which showed the RAM frequency of my machine to be 400 MHz whereas it is actually 800 MHz and also weirdly showed 8GB of RAM installed in my system whereas the actual amount is 4 GB. Also if you have a brand new PC with touching edge devices then you have to wait a little before you get the most updated CPU-Z to enlighten your PC.

Despite of this, CPU-Z gives us the a short and compact picture of our PC internals. So if you ever want to have a look inside your PC without opening it up, then this tool is perfect for you! Also if you know any other tool better than this then please share with us…
