Computer Usage Timer
Computer Usage Timer is a simple-to-use application that shows the computer's total uptime on any day of the calendar.
It does not include complex features or configuration settings, making it accessible to all types of users, regardless of their level of experience with computer software.
Accessibility via the system tray
The setup procedure does not take a long time to finish. At startup, Computer Usage Timer creates an icon in the system tray area which can be double-clicked at any time to get uptime statistics.
Easily select a day to view uptime details
All you have to do is navigate a basic calendar and just select a date to immediately view uptime information, namely start and end time, total duration, and logged user.
Secure the program with a password
Each PC startup is recorded separately. In addition, you can view only logs based on a particular user. As far as app settings are concerned, it is possible to password-protect Computer Usage Timer to restrict the access of other users to it.
Evaluation and conclusion
We have not come across any unpleasant surprises in our tests, since Computer Usage Timer was stable. It has a good response time and shows accurate information. CPU and RAM consumption is very low. Since it sits quietly in the system tray area, it does not interrupt normal user activity.
The only problem with Computer Usage Timer is that it has not been updated for a very long time, and it is not compatible with later Windows versions. Otherwise, its basic set of options would have made it a must-have tool for users who want to keep track of their workstations' uptime.
