About ILookv8

ILook is a multi threaded, Unicode compliant, fast forensic analysis tool designed to analyze an image taken from a seized computer system or other digital media. ILook will run on the following 32 bit platforms :- Win2K or WinXP and the following 64 bit platforms :- Windows XP / Server 2003. ILook can be used to examine images obtained from other forensic imaging tools that produce a raw bit stream image. It may also be used to examine some commercial imager formats. The hardware recommendation for ILookv8 is a 2 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4 processor with 1 gigabyte of RAM. ILook v8 contains "On-line help" sections which are available once Ilook is installed. IXimager help is included only with ILookv8 since the IXimager formats are proprietary to ILookv8.
