Windows Games Advisor helps takes the guesswork out of figuring out if a game will work on your computer. The game compares your computer specs to the system requirements that are given by the publishers. After scanning your computer, Microsoft Games Advisor will tell you whether or not you can run the game.
Because the advisor appears to generally just compare your stats to the required requirements, it may not be needed for gamers who know exactly what their computer specs are. It is a great tool for people who aren't entirely sure they know what they have. The good news is that once the advisor runs through, it will tell you exactly what you have. Then you'll be able to compare your computer to the requirements without the extra help.
To run Microsoft Windows Advisor you will need: Windows 98/ME/2000/XP operating system and the Internet Explorer 6 browser.
