Thanks nunz - pointing to Softpedia's servers, which are usually good about adware notices.

There's a "More downloads..." link on the developer's Website. "How to extract" mentions that, but nunz failed to RTFT.

Baas: no prob, thanks for direct-linking the 32 and 64-bit versions. Adding a notice about the adware version.

In spite of the adware issues, I think this is the easiest-to-use and to setup CPU temperature application. It's on all my PCs and I've never had a problem with it. Just set it and forget it. The digital temperature display in the system tray is very visible and useful when resource-heavy apps are running. I'm surprised this isn't rated higher.

v1.0 RC6
