Original CoolMon v1 works better.
This one is a joke. You give it free access to download so it will install(?)& then there are no options to configure it at all. As in download & install a plugin-duhh
You have to go to the website to get more plugins & then they give you examples in languages other than english.
After it jerked me around so it would install I had to forcibly restart it as it hung on an initial startup. waste of time

It wouldn't work properly because of installation problems. Fair enough but instead of uninstalling it only deactivates itself and the rubbish has to be removed manually.

Not a bad program at all... i used it for ages last year and it is flawless but samurize (www.samurize.com) is infinitely better and looks so much better too.

It says 'InitConfig.cml could not be found" and just stops and unloads.

could use a bit more options, a bit limited on that...for example, date change, multicolor text, etc - just fun things...i noticed a bug/issue: i clicked 'show desktop' when running 1 ie window on xp sp 1, but when i opened it back up to full screen i had cool mon rite over my window!...not a big issue, still a great program, smooth, fast, and love the installer (get that?, samarize?)

Works ok for what it monitors.
Try TaskInfo 2003 for more info than you'll know what to do with. TaskInfo is an excellent tool for monitoring and controlling what is happening with your system.

NOTE: It's inappropriate to rate a program like that. You didn't even get to see its features, etc.

I, on the other hand, do get to see its features. I've been using CoolMon for a while now, and I love it. Very customizeable, accurate, and aesthetically pleasing (if you set it the way you want it). I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a cool new gizmo.

I'm using Windows Me. On system startup, this program says, I need a dll, and prompted me to go to some microsoft site, in order to download the fix. Only problem, is the fix is for Windows NT only. So, it doesn't work on my Windows Me system.

did Coolmon go away? Their website has been down for quite some time now. I hope Coolmon didn't fall subject to the AIM+ syndrome - disapearing then repearing 2 months later...

Great program, very useful even just using the basic included 'quick configs' for the layout. No crashes, or system compitable problems as of yet. Bug: When setting Systray icon to CPU use percentage, and resizing the font, the percentage gets to big to show on systray making that option useless since it cant be seen.

This is a cool program. The only problem is that "samurize" is way much better!
