Windows 7: CPUID Monitor

19 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1
CPUID Monitor

Any of you that use this, when it is opened I get this prompt. How can I get rid of it?

Right click the file > Properties
At the bottom of the window there's something Like 'Security: blablabla' and next to it is a button to take away that blockade or whatever the button is called in English (I'm on a Dutch version of windows)
Anyway, that should solve it.

It looks to me like it's just asking if you want to run the program, although I don't get that screen myself. Have you clicked "run"?

It does that with exe files gotten from the internet, it serves to protect you of course but sometimes it can really get in the way, lol.

It just means it's an unsigned program, it's there for your security as Morph said.

I think that disabling signature checking from the Advanced tab in Internet Options on IE will make it go away. Don't really recommend that though. (That looks like the IE run box to me... unless your not using IE, in which case ignore what I just said)

Nah it's just the windows run box. It's a fairly good security option but once you're sure the file is safe (like for example, you've run it before and everything was fine) it's best to just go to properties and take away the blockade for the specific file. I wouldn't recommend changing windows' settings to stop the blockade from happening completely either, just in case.

CPUID Hardware Monitor
I have CPUID Hardware Monitor installed and I like it. But, there seems to be a lot of information available that I do not use OR that is not being updated. How can I determine which readings are "for real" and which are pseudo readings. Example: I have six fan speed readings that never...

Freeware that is similar to CPUID-Z
In the past I have made use of a free software that is very much like CPUID-Z but it included info that CPUID-Z does not. Unfortunately I have forgotten the name of it. If anyone knows or can suggest such a free software please respond. Thank you.

CPUID HWMonitor accuracy?
A couple days ago I installed CPUID HWMonitor to check my hard drive temperatures. Is it a dependable tool for this? I noticed that the voltages it reports are unrealistic, and have found many reports of this on the web (often with comments like "Your PC wouldn't boot with those voltages".) Are...
CPUID Monitoring
Those of you who use CPUID, I have a question for you. There is a FAN monitor and sometimes RPM's Minimum is 0 (it is not on this snip), which indicates to me it has stopped. I have three case fans and the CPU fan. Is this the CPU fan and have yours ever shown Zero?
