Can anybody recommend a Windows system monitoring tool similar to iPulse for the Mac? [closed]

Occasionally, my PC grinds to a halt, and by the time I get any monitoring tools open (don't forget my PC is slow at this point), performance has picked up a bit.

"Some time ago I wrote a severely cut down knock off of iPulse for XP in C++ using GDI+. Later, I thought it might be fun to rewrite it for WPF in C# and learn the platform along the way. At that time WPF wasn't performing well enough under XP, so I abandoned it. Your post prompted me to try it now, on Windows 7, and I have to say things look much better. It's only rarely going above 3%, most of the time idling at 0%.

If you want me to, I can send either of the two versions your way, but be warned that they only include the basic iPulse functionality, i.e. display of disk/cpu/network/memory status, and no configuration options whatsoever. Oh, and you can use the original jackets, downloaded from iconfactory's website, provided you can find a way to extract them from the .dmg files."
