It's not mentioned but it requires admin rights to install a driver. Does it remove the driver on system reboot? I don't know, I couldn't find out very much information besides "there's no installation required". The developer proclaims "It's so simple to use, you don't need documentation." LOL. So much for that.

Last but not least GPU-Z and CPU-Z just share similar names, they are developed independently afaik.

It's not stealth. Where the files or regs stored?

lyx: I am sorry that your post got deleted -- I'm not a big fan of censorship. That said, admins moderate the forums -- the "comments" section is moderated by all members.

@lyx
I have seen your previous comment. I wish it was not deleted just so that everyone else could see who the real braindead moron is. As for contributing to TPFC... you are not missed.

BTW, System Spec works fine on my XP SP3.

@lyx: I have retracted webfork's negative vote at his request, but someone else may still vote your comment out. :)

SIV (System Information Viewer) displays lots of core operating system, network and hardware-related information including CPU, PCI, PCMCIA, USB, sensors etc. The program varies from other system monitors in its "dashboard"-style view: a thin bar of key system information that can be expanded upon.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

System Requirements: WinAll
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? No. Writes some non user-configurable values to the registry.
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Launch SIV32X.exe or SIV64X.exe for a 64-bit OS

Optionally, to enable stealth mode, launch SIV32X.exe -NOSIVREG or SIV64X.exe -NOSIVREG for 64-bit

From v4.38
Added support for [SIVDEF.ini] which can be used to provide defaults for configuration parameters that are not already present in the registry. By default SIV will save these defaults to the registry unless -NOSIVREG is selected. Note that when SIV is run from a DVD/CD or Removable Drive (USB Flash Drive) -NOSIVREG is the default.

webfork on 2014-01-05 21:20

Thanks Wolfghost and red-ray: added the nosivreg bit to the entry.

ExperienceIndexOK v1.51 Updated

ExperienceIndexOK is a small program to read and show your Windows Experience Index or to start a new calculation of the performance index. This index "measures the capability of your computer's hardware and software configuration" (source).

The program is primarily written for Windows 8.1 and 10 because the performance index is still calculated but no longer displayed in the System.

Experience Index is visually inspired by the representation on Windows 7.
