     Having seen so many code snips that either only work with Windows9x or return incorrect values, I decided to write one that should work accross ALL version of Windows. I was able to find multiple pieces of code all over the place and assembled them into a neat little ActiveX control. This usercontrol can be be used visually, and optionally display the history of any if the following values; CPU Load %, Memory Load %, Free Pagefile %, Free Virtual Memory % and the HD Free space %. The control can also be hidden and used to manually retrieve the values below using the GetCurrentSystemLevels routine. This allows you to retrieve current system levels and isplay the information using your own layout/design; CPULoadPercent, MemoryLoadPercent, PhysicalMemoryTotal, PhysicalMemoryAvailable, PhysicalMemoryAvailablePercent, PageFileTotal, PageFileAvailable, PageFileAvailablePercent, VirtualMemoryTotal, VirtualMemoryAvailable, VirtualMemoryAvailablePercent, HDTotalBytes, HDTotalFreeBytes, HDAvailableFreeBytes, HDTotalBytesUsed, HDAvailablePercent The visual look of the control is fully customizable. All colors can be modified to fit the individual needs of developers.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
