HWMonitor can causes crashes

Just an FYI...

Apparently this temperature monitoring software can cause hard crashes in certain system configurations. It certainly did in mine and wanted to pass along the information to the community at large.

If you are having periodoc hard crashes/lock ups and are running HWmonitor, you may want to stop the program and see if your problems stop. The tricky thing is that many people start running this software because they are trying to see if "heat issues" are casing lock-ups to begin with and may never realize that the monitor could be compounding the issue.

HWMonitor Crash

HWMonitor also crashes my system. It seems to only do this when I try to save the monitoring data. Regardless, this is enough for me to discontinue use.
