A free CPU, disk, memory and process meter for your Windows desktop
A free CPU meter for
your desktop, along with three more dials for memory, disk partition
and process usage. This
utility can continuously and simultaneously monitor these key
computer parameters, displaying them on big dials for easy
observation, as numeric percentage and analog hand rotation. It
also offers you general information about your microprocessor
(brand, type, speed), memory and disk (physical and logical drive).
A process running on your computer can be selected for monitoring,
and its CPU usage is computed as an average value from all processor
cores data. So, with this free utility it's very easy to have a
dynamic overview of your computer's performance, using a very small
amount of its resources. The program's small window can be dragged
anywhere on your screen and placed on top of other programs, with
the opacity you have chosen.

processor (under 1% on Intel 2Ghz). For slower
computers, 'smooth motion' and 'show percentage' can be
disabled in order to decrease the load.
