Monitor Your Computer the Easy Way with Moo0 System Monitor

Looking for an easy way to monitor your computer’s system resource usage?  Now you can with the highly customizable Moo0 System Monitor.

During the Installation

The install process is straightforward and easy to sort through. One point of interest during the install process is the option to have Moo0 System Monitor start with your computer each time as shown below. The default is to have the app start with your computer each time, so if you prefer to run Moo0 System Monitor on demand rather than full-time then deselect “Start on System Boot”.

Initial Startup Layout

When Moo0 System Monitor starts up for the first time, it will open with a default set of fields that are being monitored. From here you can customize the fields displayed, look (skins), layout style (i.e. horizontal, vertical, or box flow), and many other things (very nice!).

Here is a look at part of the Fields Menu…there is a lot more to this menu than would fit into our screenshot.

Notice that there is also an option to reset to the original default fields setup.

    Of all the different system monitoring tools that I’ve tried, WinBar is the only one that I actually continue to use regularly.
