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.

Like everything else that Nir Sofer writes, it's great. No fancy interface, no install/uninstall, no cluttering of the registry, etc., etc. It simply does what it says it will do. Period.

Why not just C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch
