I recently bought an HP60 laptop which felt warmer to the touch than I would have liked it to, so to monitor its internal component temperatures, I Googled for temperature sensing programs and chose to install CPUID HWMonitor, figuring that its source, C/NET, was the only source of such a program whose name I recognized from the half a dozen I evaluated.
One thing that is troubling me, however, is that each time I click the desktop icon to utilize it, it opens a "user account control" box requiring that I expressly give it permission to continue. At the bottom of that box, it informs me that, "User account control helps stop unauthorized changes to (my) computer"
I don't see why a program to report my temperatures to me would require any such authorization from me to change my computer in order to utilize it after its initial installation. What gives??
