Oscar,

Without the user telling you, you probably are not going to be able to
do this. Your best bet would be to have an ActiveX control installed on the
page (and not a .NET control that is embedded, because the rights by default
wouldn't allow you to access the information needed) which would then do the
detection for you. For something like this, you are better off using an
unmanaged piece of code (only because hosting Windows Forms controls as
ActiveX controls is not really supported).

Hope this helps.
