    Speccy (and CPU-Z) will Freeze some systems - careful if you use them


    Hi there
    For analysis etc CPU-Z and Speccy were excellent programs BUT on W8 they appear to FREEZE some computers so if you use these please note.

    Some computers run these just fine.

    Cheers

    CPU-Z was fixed, at least as John and Tiffosira reported after: https://www.eightforums.com/crashes-d...html#post86354

    As jimbo says - "on some computers". Both run 100% on mine.

    Yes, but the ones that had issues do not any longer...so that makes it "none of the computers".
