There is a lot of software that report CPU, RAM, disk usage, but most seem to be displaying it on a desktop or in some area of the screen that is covered by other windows that doesn't make it very useful. This compact utility displays real-time CPU, RAM, disk usage right on the taskbar notification area, next to the clock.
The following features are available:
* Real-time reporting of the CPU activity.
* Real-time reporting on the system RAM usage.
* Real-time reporting of the disk drives activity.
* Color coding of the readouts can indicate CPU/RAM/disk drive workload even without seeing the actual numbers.
* Support for higher resolutions and screen DPIs for better meters readability.
* Ability to safely remove (or eject) USB drives with one click of the mouse, even on older operating systems, such as Windows XP.
* This program does not require installation, or administrative privileges to operate and can be run from any location on your hard drive.
* This program obtains additional technical information about the CPU(s) on your system (Central Processing Units.)
* This program obtains additional technical information about the RAM (or system memory.)
* This program obtains additional technical information about disk drives.
* We attempted to write this program with as small of an impact on the system resources as possible to improve the accuracy of its reporting.
