System Performance Meters

Saturday, March 1, 2008 by Fairyy~ | Discussion: DesktopX

Can someone refresh my memory.

I recall Frogboy writing a post concerning the System Performance Meters not functing and that they were aware of this problem.

I just dont recall why .

Was it the newest version of DesktopX or is it that the meters will not function if your using Vista OS ?

Thanks in advance.

I'll try again. System Performance Meters still working here on XP SP2. I think it's a Vista issue. They don't work with Vista.

I'm use vista with UAC off,


Can you explain how to shut that off ?

Someone asked me if I knew how they could fix it but I have no idea about Vista.

From HowToGeek:


Open up Control Panel, and type in user account into the search box.
You'll see the link for "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off". Click it.
Uncheck the box, and reboot your computer.

Thanks Pic - I appreciate the info.
At least I can include a " Read Me " text next time for Vista users.

And thank you again Bilbo..much appreciated.
