SimpleWMIView is a tool for developers, testers, and system diagnosis, displaying the result of WMI queries in a simple table. The program allows for easy export to text/csv/html/xml file, or to copy the selected items to the clipboard and then paste them to a spreadsheet application (like Excel).

With SimpleWMIView you can get extensive information about your system, like a list of running processes, services, drivers, user accounts, hardware, and so on.

It's not mentioned but it requires admin rights to install a driver. Does it remove the driver on system reboot? I don't know, I couldn't find out very much information besides "there's no installation required". The developer proclaims "It's so simple to use, you don't need documentation." LOL. So much for that.

Last but not least GPU-Z and CPU-Z just share similar names, they are developed independently afaik.

It's not stealth. Where the files or regs stored?

@MIKLO: USB Oblivion (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=2287) does precisely what you mentioned...

MIKLO on 2017-05-25 14:30

@Midas thank you & I have used Oblivion before it is a very good App and works great, I do like better than USBDeview although it also is a very good App. Again that's @Midas for your help and info here and on many other Apps or Software on this site :)

@mrpink
Thank you. I updated the entry to include the information about esihdrv.sys. I did notice the driver in the temp folder but am not sure how I missed the registry keys when testing ESET SysInspector the first time. Anyway, if anyone needs help in deleting those LEGACY_ESIHDRV keys from the registry, see http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8703
