I want to measure the overall speed of several different PCs, primarily processor speed but also disk access, memory speed, etc.
Is there a shareware program that is available that will run on a PC as an executable and provide performance metrics?
Thanks,

3Dmark vantage, or 3Dmark 2006...is shareware, but really good.

That's mostly gaming though. For more general usage, try PCmark.

+1 for Sandra. It provides very detailed information. The free version doesn't have all the features turned on, but it's good enough in my opinion.

+1 for PCmark. Gives a general idea of how a computer handles everyday things.

Sandra's the best when it comes to sythetics, except, I'd rather use some CD ripping or video encoding as a benchmark.

Actually, the Phoronix benchmark suite comes to mind now. It is, one of the easiest to use balanced benchmarks I've ever used. Just glad it's not a synthetic.
