Windows 7: GPU Meter 1.1 (sidebar gadget) causes system lock up

GPU Meter 1.1 (sidebar gadget) causes system lock up

I just wanted to throw a warning out there to everyone that the GPU Meter 1.1 ( gadget can cause your system to hard lock moments after logging in.

Version 1.0 did not seem to do this but the update seems to trigger a quick failure in the communication with the video driver leading to hard lock.

Anyway, I use a majority of the gadgets from and like them all but this one is flawed severely. I have reported the bug to them so hopefully all will be right with the world soon.

I use some of their gadgets as well. (Network, Drives) Don't use their GPU one though.

In the meantime, you might consider orbmu2k's GPU gadget. The "GPU Observer" is one I use from him, and his "Intel Core Series" CPU one. It's been pretty good for me.
