Another interesting programme. If, like me, you like seeing what's behind stuff that's running your computer into the ground. Run it when you really want to know stuff. I rarely auto run anything except the most essential apps. These things are mostly, for me, troubleshooting apps. EmiSoft complains about NirSoft. Have yet to figure out EmiSoft. Keep NirSoft ServiWin if you are running Windows O/S.
