    You didn't say what you want to scan for, but if you want to "scan and
    identify" the hardware on your computer, try Belarc Advisor. It examines and
    identifies all of the hardware.

    I think it is highly unlikely that any of the hardware other than the hard
    drive can be "infected." I have heard of BIOS viruses that cause pemanent
    damage to the BIOS chip, requiring replacement. i don't know of any way to
    "scan" for this however. RAM would dump any infection when the power is off
    during shut down. I don't think any of the other devices are capable of being
    "infected".

    Why didn't you say so in the first place, insead of making us all
    assume things that you didn't mean? First you were talking about
    scanning hardware, now you're talking about scanning registries.
    What exactly is it you want?

    The only parts of another computer you have access to across the
    network are disk files. You don't have direct access to their
    hardware.

    Most anti-virus programs that can scan other computers on the LAN
    will scan the registry, also. You generally have to pay for
    "corporate" versions for that capability. The free or "home"
    versions are generally restricted to the local machine. Seems to me,
    though, that a remote scan will be highly likely to miss the more
    deeply embedded malware, such as rootkits.

    Here's one that I found by searching on Google. I have no experience
    with it:

    You contradict your own statements. You first say "i aint dumb", give a
    verification, then proceed to prove yourself wrong.

    You would need an enterprise version of an antivirus software, if you wanted
    to scan from a remote computer, do a search for that, depending on your
    preferences, for utilities.
