Try this cool app. if you like to know the stats on your computer. It's called Statbar and is freeware!
It's kinda like coolinfo, but use a statusbar in you window. you can customize this to almost whatever you want.
Thanks to Insignificant for this..

I downloaded it (5 minutes with 56k), installed it. All in all a nice program for what it does. It is very limited right now (but it is freeware). Does have alot of potential though if they would add shtuff like cpu/mb temp, page file, and Lan connection stats. Hopefully those come in the near future and this will be the ultimate quick visual stat checker.

Try it and you agree with me, ensure to let the company know our thoughts. You cant have a good program without good user feedback.

Thanks andyp!

Hi, Does anyone know if you can just make StatBar run in the background, instead of an application.

Everytime I Ctrl+Alt+Del, StatBar is an application...

Thanks. Not essential, but just a personal preference...

after playing with this program alittle after work, I really like it. I like the fact that it has the autohide feature but more importantly the autohide that you have to click so you dont have any annoying popups with it when you do not want it.

the hard drive feature is nice, but i do wish you could open up the drives when clicked on, this would be a nice feature.

I have several recommendations for the programmers that would make this a very very nice tool. All in all, great program, nice user interface, and easy to use. Thumbs UP!

one question though... what is the RC5/OGR counter? Its looking for some sort of txt/log file.

One thing I dislike...

Is that it shows up as the primary window ina the ALT-TAB screen, and really throws me off... I am always multitasking at home & work, and now my ALT+TAB rhythm is thrown off... I had a COOLMON onscreen program, but I like this better with the exception of this minor inconvenience.

Any idea of getting this to run in the background as mentioned above? I do know that COOLMON (I think thats the name) ran in the background and didn't show up in the ALT-TAB screen....

Thanks for any help!!!

looked at there website.. here is some of the future plans for this software:

• A download/upload (network traffic) meter
• A pagefile usage meter
• Support for Winamp 3
• A date/time module
• The ability to hide the time synchronization module entirely, while keeping it active anyway
• The ability to make the main window floating instead of docked
• A "jump to file" button for the Winamp module
• A POP3 e-mail checker
• The ability to select the CD drive that will be controlled by the CD door eject/close buttons
• The ability to select the instance of Winamp to control when multiple Winamps are opened

• Less bold text labels
• Transparency (will only work on Win2K/XP)
• Scrollwheel support for Win95 (currently only works on Win98/NT4 and above)
• A "lock volume" option

I noticed that

not all windows recognze the statbar as a taskbar, so the windows overlap... no biggie tho...

Anyone have an idea how to get it to run in the background yet?

One of the most useful little utilities i've seen for many moons, bloody fine job.

I agree with miseryq tho' in wishing it had appeared a little earlier !!

I've e-mailed the programmer asking a couple of the questions above, and also requesting the coding, hoping that something even better can be produced.

Great Progaram

A "open file" button for winamp buttons would be nice too.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
