  1. I imagined it was something like that.


    Although, I cannot believe that once someone has tried AIDA64, they are not willing to buy a license to enable full functionality, it is the absolute best software of its kind!


    It is nice to know that the .zip packages will not have the Chrome ad.


    Have you ever thought about offering premium licenses, such as lifetime subscriptions?

  2. Thanks for the new version.


    However, I must say I was rather disappointed to see the Chorme browser ad.


    I expect that sort of thing on freeware, understanding the authors of such software need some way to offset development costs, but not on license software, especially on an exceptional application such as AIDA64.





  3. Ah now I know what it is :)  You have the hardware monitoring item called External IP Address in use.  In order to detect your external IP address, AIDA64 needs to ping an internet server that sends the external IP address back to AIDA64.  We use our auto-update server for that purpose as well.  It's a similar service that others provide at e.g. http://whatismyipaddress.com/  or http://www.whatsmyip.org/


    If you prefer AIDA64 not to communicate with any internet servers, then you need to disable the External IP Address hardware monitoring item.

    As usual, you have it exactly right.


    I did not even remember I had enabled that option.



  4. Just to make sure it's not a bug in AIDA64 that is related to KIS, please let us know the KIS version+build you currently have installed.  We'll try to reproduce the issue on our test systems.


    Please also let me know if you have the traffic to our update servers indicated by TCPView only once a day, or every time you launch AIDA64 by starting AIDA64.EXE?




    I only see the connection to aida64.com when I open AIDA64. It stays open for approximately 7 seconds before closing.

  5. I see...


    It is just that any application that connects to an internet server runs though KIS (avp.exe).


    For example, here is a screenshot of TCPView I took while logged into my AIDA forum account to post this reply:





    Notice that firefox is not shown connected to aida64.com, but avp.exe is, as the firewall acts as a proxy.


    But, if you are sure there is no traffic, I will trust what you say.

  6. I used the disk usage gauges and had one question; would it not make more sense if the free space reported usage in reverse? That is, the indicator to turn red when the disk runninng out of space, rather than when it has a lot of free space?

    Thanks for continuing to provide the best monitoring software there is.

  7. Fiery,

    Thank you for looking into this issue.

    I have tried to Modify the Sensor Panel item for the external HDD temperature, changing the size, style, type, values, etc., but I cannot. That is to say; no matter what I change, the "OK" button remains greyed out so that I cannot apply the changes. With other Sensor Paenl items, the "OK" button is usable, even without any modification.

    Also, why would that particular Sensor Panel icon, and only that one, be visible (and editable) for all versions of AIDA64 that use the Sensor Panel except the last three version as noted?

    As always, your help is greatly appreciated.

  8. That is a good idea, except that one would need a way to measure the ambient temperatures.

    I know that some motherboards have the capability to install external temperature probes, but not all do.

    It would be useful, but only for a limited number of users.

    However, I would definitely like to see something like this implemented.

  9. the only likely explanation i can come up with is that when run in SLI, the 460 would only mirror the contents of the adapter output on each card and only display one instance of each port.

    Though i have 2 displays connected to my 275, so the appearance of 4 adapters on 600 series cards may be specific to kepler.

    That appears to be it, when I disable SLi in nVIDIA Control Panel, four adapters appear.
