ExperienceIndexOK v1.34 Updated

billon on 21 Jan 2018
  • 96KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 21 Jan 2018
  • Suggested by Checker

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.

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?

Non malicious web site according to virus total (checked with 38 site checkers)
Non malicious files according to virus total. Clam claims it could be a PUA but only because it performs low level analysis of a hard drive (which of course is its role in life).
My company, virusbusters, has used this program for over four years now with no issues. It has passed every antivirus scan of our systems and we run hundreds of them
The file is a zip file and opens in 7-zip and using windows XP compressed file explorer.

This program worked beautifully in testing an old external hard drive that was behaving strangely. Instead of relegating it to a secondary backup drive, it now looks to have plenty of life left.

@MIKLO: USB Oblivion (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=2287) does precisely what you mentioned...

MIKLO on 2017-05-25 14:30

@Midas thank you & I have used Oblivion before it is a very good App and works great, I do like better than USBDeview although it also is a very good App. Again that's @Midas for your help and info here and on many other Apps or Software on this site :)
