    Straight_Man I like AIDA64, thanks for the article Brian. Put it on my laptop and found out some things that System Info for Windows did not tell me about it.

    System Info for Windows is also good. It goes deep into the ins and outs of running processes and Windows services as well. SIW.exe was written and is maintained by Gabriel Topala.

Howdy, Stranger!
