    "Malware included in download"

    December 3, 2009  |   By markandcheryl


    Looks good and simple to use but...


    Temp reading fluctuates wildly and doesnt measure correctly. After a restart the temp was reading 30c lower.


    Was fine for a week or so but the temperature was fluctating so much I downloaded a second temp measure, and found the two didnt correlate at all. Also when I did a malware bytes scan the core temp went off the scale and tried to shut the pc down mid scan. We refused and malware came up with the core temp prog infected. sorry but not good enough c net, you can and do do better!

    Malwarebytes probably made the computer run too hot. Core Temp has an auto-shutoff feature when the processor temp gets into the critical range.
