Hmonitor checks the temperature of any component on your computer with a sensor. It also has alarms that can be set when the temperature goes too high, and even has built in software cooling. It was developed as a light-weight alternative to Intel LANDesk Client Manager. It takes less memory and monitors only those parameters that are collected by various sensor chips installed on modern motherboards. The program icon resides in system-tray area of Windows desktop.

hwinfo32/64 is a much better and FREE alternative.
Not to mention hwmon and open hardware monitor.

Installed this program for the first time (ever) on my ONE WEEK vista home premium. My 14 day trial was over...
EDIT: About the support...Since only paid customers have support by email (fair) i decided to post on the "support" forum as i always do when i have a question or decide to report something (like in this case). He deleted my post, i got a warning, and when i emailed him, he said only paid users get support. Next...

I've been using Hmonitor for a few years now and have to say that it is probably the most useful, or most necessary, utility that one can have. After burning up one processor, due to a dirty heat sink and faulty fan, I searched for and tested several utilities to help me monitor system health. Hmonitor was by far the best of the lot. Hmonitor has since saved me the headache and expense of replacing another processor, and probably video card, by catching an overheating problem when the main air intake(s) became blocked when the cat decided that around the computer case was a prime place to store his toys. Processors, video cards, etc. are running much hotter these days and often the stock cooling setup is barely adequate. Stock power supplies are often not up to the demands placed on them, especially as we upgrade processors, video cards, etc. Hmonitor's logging and reporting is indispensable when trying to track down cyclical and other mysterious temperature spikes. The software is easy to install, has a small footprint, minimum resource impact and is non-intrusive. Voltages, temperatures and S.M.A.R.T. monitoring are all reported in one place in a very readable interface. Very adaptable and configurable. The author is very responsive to the needs of his customers, service is excellent. I would (and do) recommend Hmonitor to everyone - a very reasonable investment to make to protect a much larger investment.

To HeyBlinkin: Why didn't you write to the author about your problem?
The note on the support page says:
"I still need help in testing for various notebooks models. If you wanna help, send me a message!"
He added support for my Compaq notebook in few hours!
