My CPU Monitor
My CPU Monitor is a lightweight software application whose purpose is to help you view the CPU usage in real-time with the aid of two icons, one displaying the percentage while the other reveals a graphical representation.
The advantages of being portable
Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to monitor CPU usage on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.
Unobtrusive running mode and configuration settings
My CPU Monitor runs quietly in the system tray without interfering with your work. When called upon, it reveals several configuration settings to experiment with, which can be tweaked directly from the system tray.
The tool gives you the possibility to blink the icon and show warnings when the CPU is higher than several preset values, hide or reveal the CPU percentage or graphic icon from the system tray, as well as make the utility run at Windows startup.
During our testing we have noticed that My CPU Monitor carries out a task quickly and without errors. It leaves a minimal footprint on system resources, so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.
To sum things up, My CPU Monitor offers a simple software solution when it comes to helping you monitor the CPU usage, and is suitable especially for rookies. On the downside, the tool doesn’t let you receive notifications if the CPU is higher or lower than a user-defined value, so you are stuck with the preset options.
