Is there a free CPU meter out there?

Specs: Windows 98SE, 1 Gig RD RAM
Hi all.

I will try again, this time in the correct section, I hope.

Does anyone know, or know from where I can download a 'freebie' CPU monitoring tool/guage?

I have a Yahoo Wigget System Monitoring tool on my XP machine which I find very useful, but that wigget does not work on win98SE.

Can anyone help please.

Looking at your system specs, I spot a problem. Win98 has problems with more than 512MB RAM. either remove 512MB or edit the vcache setting in the system.ini file so that the extra 512MB is ignored.

Other than that, what exactly do you want to monitor? BTW, watch out for Yahoo add-ons...they're spyware.

Hi there,

Thanks for the reply. Please bare with me for a post or two as I am still trying to work this forum out and how to post in it.

O.K., I have 384 MB SDRAM on my Pen 3, 800MHz IBM T21 laptop.

I am trying to get my hands on a 'freebie' meter that will give me in real time as to how much the CPU is being worked, (between 0% and 100%).

I have a Yahoo Widget System Monitoring tool (on the desktop) for my XP machine which I find very useful, but that widget sadly does not work on win98SE.

Can anyone help with tis please?

There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.

Hi Dumbob.

I have already found this one thanks Bob, but it is now exactly what I am looking for.

What I would like would be something that is continually running on the desktop as a small guage or in the Sys tray.

Thanks supertrucker, that appears to be what I want.

I have installed it and so far is working just fine. It will do until one comes alone that to my mind is more 'goodlier' :-)
