Start SpeedFan with


command line parameter. Enter CONFIGURE / OPTIONS, disable "Do SMART Summary Error Log scan on startup". Close SpeedFan, then start it normally.
It should work now.

 With /NOADVSMARTSCAN, I've got the same result : speedfan is freezing.

 I've tried in windows seven "safe mode" : Same result.

Try to start with /NOSMARTSCAN, then enter CONFIGURE / OPTIONS, disable "Do SMART Summary Error Log scan on startup". Close SpeedFan, then start it normally (with no switch).

"Do SMART Summary Error Log scan on startup" was already disable.

If this is the case, then most likely you have a driver that contains a bug. Is there any update available for the hard disk driver on your system?

Did you try the latest beta with no switch running from an empty temporary directory?

Hi , I don't find any drivers for Intel ICH6R compatible with windows 7.

 Can I use speedfan with /NOSMARTSCAN option anytime ? :-)

with The latest beta version, same pb.

Of course you can use that option forever. I was trying to find a solution that didn't force you to miss the hard disk reliability capabilities SpeedFan has.
Did you try to run any other hard disk monitoring tool and see if it works?

Yes, i've tried another soft, I can't remember the exact name, but I had the same pb.

This confirms an issue with your system and not caused by SpeedFan.
So far, I think it is fair to say that the /NOSMARTSCAN command line parameter is the fix for this issue.
