    I know this is a dumb question, but maybe someone can enlighten me... What is the significance of the three Resource Meter readings, "system", "User" and GDI (what does GDI stand for?) and what percent is poor, okay, good and excellant in each case?

    ]toast that site is just terrific! As I was reading through it I glanced at the resource bar and it was down to one green bar, so I closed a few windows and up it came again. I can now see how to use it to head off crashes before they happen. (An audible signal when the resources reach danger level would be a useful addition).

    Glad I was able to help.

    EDIT:

    Can't think of any off the top of my head but I believe there are 3rd party programs out there that actually have that feature.


    Run a search on google for "resource monitor software" or similar terms and see what comes up.

    Does Windows 95 or 98 also have a Resource Meter?
