Argus Monitor
Track your system temperature, hard drive S.M.A.R.T. details, CPU frequency and more

Argus Monitor is an interesting system information tool that enables you to keep an eye on your system temperature, fan speeds, hard drive status and many other vital system details.

The program is very easy to use. Once installed, launch it, and immediately you should see graphs of your CPU, GPU and hard drive temperatures. And a simple tabbed interface allows you to focus on any one of these attributes, making it easy to (for instance) see if your CPU is overheating when it runs processor-intensive apps.

An "HD S.M.A.R.T." tab additionally reports on details like spin up time, power cycles, host writes and more (if your hard drive is S.M.A.R.T.-compatible), though not as clearly or completely as we'd like.

A graph of your CPU core frequency lets you see if your power management plan is working properly. There are some useful system information screens. And if you find your system is overheating at any time, then the Fan Speed tab allows you to take control over your system and GPU fan speeds, ramping them up until your PC temperatures are back under control.

Version 4.1.2.2024 (Full Version History):

Verdict:

Argus Monitor does a reasonable job of tracking your system temperatures. It doesn't display all the available S.M.A.R.T. data, though, and probably isn't quite good enough to justify its price

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
