Help..........It's URGENT------Auto Detection

By bannhan ·
I'm a last year BIT student and i'm doing a project to graduate. We're working on a security software Cd which will provide general knowledge for novice users. One of the requirement is that we need to auto detect if users have any antivirus;spyware;adware;firewall and if they are still valid??????? Can anyone help me with this???Any program or source code that i can use???

Any helps would be appreciated

As for detecting installed software:
A) Do a simple search for the usual suspects in the usual places
B) Search for the specific executables
C) Output the task manager (I'm assuming this is Windows) to a file and parse that.
