This is useful for checking the status of system drivers, is included in Windows XP Professional edition.
The primary task of driverquery is to display all drivers installed on
the system. When you run the utility, you’ll receive a list of the
drivers, their short name, description, driver type, and link date and time. You
can add the /v parameter to get detailed information about drivers or
the /si parameter to get information about signed and unsigned drivers on
the system. This can be very useful.
Listing all drivers from the remote system makes the utility even more
useful. Everything you can do with a local system, you can also do on a
remote system by adding the /s parameter.
