there is no
What is an application installed called Imminent????? is an internet search bar and social networking
Is ok to keep track of the cpu
I used to use yahoo widgets to monitor cpu activity but got tired of the size of it, so I've looking for something similar but so far no luck.
Way too small, I kept squinting my eyes, and it does not start at windows startup. Which is why I got it in the first place to monitor cpu activity during load up of programs
If dragged and placed on the top of the task bar it eventually disappears so I have to unlock to task bar in order to see it and place it somewhere else. Nice looking colors and presentation but again, too small.
I liked the old version - small, unobstrusive and easy to understand quickly.
They revamped the GUI and it's now an eyesore. Uninstalled it in 5 mins.
Get the 1.x version
It does give some information on how each core are sharing the load, which is what it is meant to do, even if it does have the cores reversed. Plus it doen't take up all that much space.
Where is the developer, I have yet to connect to their site. The monitor give no information about itself. It has a spare section that seems to do nothing, flashing lights that indicate something, but what? Plus it uses the cpu when nothing else is.
A help file would be nice, as would a link to the developers website. It is supposed to be congigurable, but no instructions are given. And when the computer has been running for a fair while it will use up to 9% of the cpu when nothing else is.
Seems to do what it says
Displays in a (small) application window. I just want a tray/notification area display I can keep running at all times.
Not worth the download.
CPU Monitor gives you real time status on key system performance indicators. Each monitor can be configured for preferred color and arranged on your desktop in the way that best suits you. I far prefer it to any of the widgets I tried for the same purpose.
The labels for each of the monitors blends with the color selected for the monitor itself making it hard to detect. Of course, once you have configured and arranged each monitor you know which is which, but enabling them to be as white as the status lines would be preferable. Also, using the same font for the label display as one's desktop theme would be wonderful.
I can't tell if it's running ok or not. VERY small-worst I've ever seen.
Didn't function on my Dell D505 notebook
if you are like me and like to keep tabs on everything your computer is doing then this handy little tool is for you. With this tool you will know how hard your cpu is working at just a glance. Great diagnostic tool as well.
No reason for this program to access the internet. Used my zone alarm firewall to deny access. After that it still works just fine though.

What i was looking for. A 4.5. It's a streamlined, low impact program that takes little to no real-estate on my desktop (while showing what i need). When you mouse over the (color coded) unlabeled buttons, XP told me what the buttons are. It displayed my hyperthreading details on my P4 3.4 in two small yet effective bars. It also gave the small but handy windows task manager line graph style all in a small amount of space. I think we need more programs designed like this. Low impact, functional, compact and delivers only what you ask it too. It doesn't try to invade my desktop or my system and takes up no more vertical space than the immediate window's minimize button. It's found a home on my system.
The only thing that kept me from giving it a 5 is, while it's extremely functional and by no means unatractive, it doesn't provide a "wow" factor in presentation. In the age of new Vista users and borderline Mac users this is what i and others are looking for. My last .5 score would have came in the asthetics.
