A very useful program

I was playing around with this program. I think it is extremely useful if you want to find information about your system.

Don't click on these green buttons. Use this one:

Thanks, Wolfgang! That looks intriguing. I have a couple, three other programs that do most of what this one claims but Eureka! looks especially interesting. It would be nice to combine all the tools I have been using into one. I have it bookmarked and will have to play with investigate it later.

I see that the free version has been withdrawn (that's what I've got installed) - I do indeed find it useful.

Sorry guys, I just realized that there were only pro versions on their website. I got my free version from here. Will add that.

I was just looking at this little chart. Useful for checking the temps.

Sorry - didn't realise that the free version could still be found.

Important: Free version comes bundled with open candy and you need to block the open candy setup .dll to clean install it. The problem is that I cannot remember the exact file name!

Edit: It's OCSetupHlp.dll

Edit: Still get the warning but the file cannot execute on my machine and SIW clean installs.
