    NOTE: If your using Vista/7 when you try to debug it, it will get an error because u need to run as admin

    1. Start a new project.

    2. Above Public Class section add
    Imports System
    Imports System.Management
    Code (markup):
    3. Make a button and double click it and add the following.

                Dim searcher As New ManagementObjectSearcher("root\WMI", "SELECT * FROM MSAcpi_ThermalZoneTemperature")
                For Each queryObj As ManagementObject In searcher.Get()
                    Dim temp As Double = CDbl(queryObj("CurrentTemperature"))
                    temp = (temp - 2732) / 10.0
            Catch err As ManagementException
                MessageBox.Show("An error occurred while querying for WMI data: " & err.Message)
            End Try
    Code (markup):
    I'll put a tut for viewing CPU usage soon.
    And once i post all my tuts you will be able to make your own simple task manager. Even though windows task manage is already good enough being able to make your own is just fun because you can add just about anything you want.

    Well just say thanks if you like
