Website design

By lavon_699 ·
I am designing a website that will run virus scans, maintenance check and tell me what hardware/software is installed on clients PC. Does know how to put a link on my website that will allow me to do each of these tasks? I want the software to check their machine not mine.

I will also be offering a few more services, these services will be broken down into packages: Bronze, Silver and Gold. When a client registers and chooses a package I would like the website to automatically direct them to the page that corresponds with that package... Thank you

You could write some ActiveX programs that will do those things, then when the client hits your site, the ActiveX will load and do the job. But that is some major programming, and not simply a hyperlink.

You're looking at scripts that will need to break through firewalls, to start with, not to mention doing some serious privacy invasion - ie hacking tools. If you're planning on offering a virus scan service, you'll need to devote some serious time just to keep those definition files up to date. Are you really sure you want to do this? If this is for work, you may be better off running something off a network drive instead - it's already inside the walls.

If you are determined to go ahead, you'll have to start researching hack sites as to the kinds of things you need to do to get around security and run these functions, as an example check out - they run a few similar functions (eg port scanning) off their site, and their verification routines would be a good example.
