Cross-platform system tool for reading and editing configurations of PCI devices. Based on the portable library libpci which provides access to the PCI configurations for almost all major operating systems.
Gives the user detailed information about all the system components on the computer; among other things provides details about the processor, the RAM, which hard disks are present, and also the currently installed BIOS; also lists all currently running applications.
Classic tool with over 250 functions to optimise the computer whilst providing protection against viruses, spyware and other malware. Examines the registry for problems and tries to fix these, provides an overview of the current health status of the PC and burns a Windows Rescue CD which can be used in case the computer won't start.
This tool analyses the system and displays data about how much CPU, RAM, hard disk capacity and internet bandwidth is being used by individual processes. This also helps detect trojans that have embedded themselves in everyday processes. Portable version also available. Fast and secure download from The H
Uses Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to display comprehensive system and process information, as well as the entire set of WMI management classes, objects and their properties, even from remote computers. Executes WMI Query Language (WQL) queries and displays the corresponding results.
Allows the unlocking, deletion, renaming or copying of locked files;. Identifies the responsible processes and allows their removal. Integrates into the context menu of Windows Explorer. Direct download provides the 32-bit version.
For monitoring the temperature and status of system components. Monitors and displays the temperature of CPU, graphics card and hard drive. Checks the status of critical SMART attributes and warns of possible defects. Also regulates fan speed of modern ATI and Nvidia graphics cards and system cooling fans in case these aren’t supported by the installed hardware.
Displays (internal or external) hard disk and USB drive data, for example, size, type, bus, transfer standard, partitions, S.M.A.R.T. values, S.M.A.R.T. logs, MBR, VBR for P-ATA, S-ATA, USB and SCSI. Fast and secure download from The H
Benchmarking tool especially for solid-state drives (SSDs). Contains six synthetic tests and three copying tests that avoid the system cache. Displays system information that is relevant to the SSD, such as partition offset/alignment or used drivers. Not suitable for normal hard disks.
Benchmark tool for Windows Vista or Windows 7 64-bit systems to measure productivity in the areas of video creation, office, e-learning and 3D modelling. An older version, 2007 Preview, is still available for XP and 32-bit systems.
Software-based test program for CUDA-enabled graphics cards. Uses a range of standard test templates to check that the GPU memory is operating correctly. Some of the tests are based on the popular MemTest tool. Download requires registration.
Displays and logs the temperature of Intel's Singlecore, Dualcore, Quadcore and i7 processors. Not only provides information about the absolute temperature but indicates how far this is from the recommended maximum. Enables you to run scripts and programs depending on processor temperature.
Displays the clock rates of the CPUs in the system tray. Can therefore provide information about the current frequency if you’re using processors that have variable clock rates. Fast and secure download from The H
Test program for optical drives and storage media. Supports CDs as well as DVDs and Blu-rays. Also conducts various quality tests for storage media such as BLER, PI/PO, C1/C2 or Jitter and provides detailed information about the results. Successor to Nero DiscSpeed (Formerly called Nero CD-DVD Speed).
Lists all programs that start automatically with the operating system. Can disable automatic start-up of programs temporarily or permanently. Allows collecting of further information about entries and automatically starting of additional programs. Displays and terminates running processes.
Information bar for displaying system data in real time. Provides detailed information about the CPU, memory and network loads. Can be extended with a range of plug-ins, to display the contents of the Clipboard or to deploy process controls for media playback, for example.
