I think the right forum thread is this:

Thanks, smaragdus, nicely done -- but as the topic you found is a single post, I think we should ask webfork to merge it with the current official topic. What do you think?

@ smaragdus: First mentioned by malikorx69 [07 Feb 2008], so this is the forum topic.
guinness post is dated [09 Nov 2009].
I agree to merge the two, but malikorx69's should be first!

The plethora of information to display including Fan speeds, CPU, HDD, and MOBO temps in the notification tray makes this thing perfect for me. I let Process Explorer handle the memory/cpu/network/etc usage and let this thing display cpu/mobo/etc temps and I get a wealth of information in one area. It doesn't use too much resources either. Highly recommended.

@Ateka: The most important part -- The driver is installed when you run and it is removed after you close it. The HKCU key is settings and not important. It's not stealth, it requires admin rights but it IS portable.

The latest version of HWiNFO32/HWiNFO64 is 4.50.

You need to start this by "run as administator" in order to see all the drives. You can set that property in the shortcut properties if you wish.
