    Interesting question. I believe there is a way to do remote management calls for getting that information but honestly, I haven't even explored how to do that. Poke around MSDN and see what you can turn up. If you find anything, I'd love to hear about it.

    Is it possible to get more information other than the processor and Mainboard details.. perhaps Drivers etc.. using this method?

    Perhaps something like select * from Win32_[another item's name here]

    Absolutely. It's all WMI queries. If you Google a little bit on the WMI system, you'll turn up all kinds of references. For example, suppose I wanted to know the Video Card's driver:
    Code:
        Function ShowVideoControllerInfo()
            Dim str As String = ""
            Dim query As New System.Management.SelectQuery("Win32_VideoController")
            Dim search As New System.Management.ManagementObjectSearcher(query)
            Dim info As System.Management.ManagementObject
    
            For Each info In search.Get()
                str = info("DriverVersion").ToString()
            Next
            Return str
           
        End Function

    Cool...
    I'll give it a shot, as I'd like to create an app that displays Specs of PC
