Just curious if anyone has been tasked with reporting what users have been installing into their browsers. What technology(s) did you use?

Informations about web browser plugins are in Add/Remove Programs, if you know names of those plugins You can get information about PC from sms database.

You can also try to examine windows registry, to find a place, where browser plugins put information about installation Simply: install a plugin, a try to find its name in registry, then install another one and do the same -> maybe there is some rule?
If there is You can try run VBS script on sms clients machine to export registry key with informations about plugins.

The problem is that there is no common location for browser plugins to be registered thanks to ActiveX. I'm starting to realize nobody has build a fingerprint database to easily discover what has been installed. If you set up SMS to audit all DLLs there might be an opportunity to sift through the information and make a mini database.
