That requirement does not sound reasonable. Download and install Avast Free version. It remains free for personal use as long as you register your name and email with them and it is a quality program. If the program needs to know your system components during install, it can read them itself. Without knowing what program or what 'agency', we do not know more. Only a University or large corporation generally will require you to run a specific antivirus program, and for that, they would supply you with an enterprise version of the software and the installer for that would be able to determine all it needs to know.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I've never known of any Antivirus spec being stated against the CPU spec in particular - seems odd. Is it possible that they are asking for the whole "Computer Spec" as that could make a difference? I know of no AV yet that won't cope with XP itself but if the computer hardware is severely limited then it could make some difference.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

There is a CPU ID. In my BIOS this is listed under System. I agree that this seems odd. Microsoft does read those IDs when you register your installation but it is only for the purpose of seeing a unique fingerprint for your system.

Seems to me the program should be able to scan the BIOS and read that number.

Could you explain what "my agency need my computers cpu id" that statement actually refers to?
