core temp constantly opening - how do I stop that?

Postby cherold » Mon Jun 30, 2014 12:02 am

I just installed core temp (Windows 7). The program keeps just popping up. I think it's when one of my cores goes too high. A little balloon pop-up warning would be fine, but I don't like having to constantly close the program, which turns green in my taskbar as though it's loading something.

I can't find a setting that would seem to toggle whether or not it does this all the time. Is there some way to stop it?

By default Core Temp will display the temperature as a progress bar its taskbar button. The value range is 0 - TjMax.
You can change this behavior or disable it completely by going to Options --> Settings --> Windows 7 Taskbar tab.
You can also set Core Temp to pop up a balloon tooltip as well as other configurations by going to Options --> Overheat protection.

Thanks. I knew there were more options I'd seen earlier but didn't realize they were in Overheat.

I have a similar problem. Only it's not a balloon tip that pops up in the the notification area, it's the whole program window that comes up on the desktop at least once/twice a day.

I have Overheat options all unchecked and disabled.
Program starts minimized to taskbar no problem, but then out of the blue hours later it comes back on the desktop :x

I apologize for the late reply.

Does the Core Temp window 'restore' itself from being minimized? Does it 'grab' focus from other windows or does the taskbar button start blinking?
I'm not sure what would cause such a thing to happen. One thing worth trying is disable the logging feature in the settings dialog in case it is enabled and see if that has any effect.

Came to the forums for exactly this issue, it's happening on my HTPC (Windows7 SP1 x64) as well. I don't see it happen - I run Windows Media Center fullscreen on top, but if I close WMC i often find the main window restored up, when I last left it minimized. Options set to show in tray, not on taskbar, and start minimized. Happens often. It's not stealing focus from WMC in this case at least far as I see.

A little more context, I noted the highest temp listed on the display was 47C. Overheat protection option disabled. Logging already disabled. I have the options set to start with Windows, minimize to tray on close, hide in taskbar, hide taskbar button, enable global shared memory. This is 1.0.0rc6, didn't see this behavior on a much older version I recently upgraded from.
