Summary0002652: Speedfan repeatedly queries a registry value that does not exist, wasting processor resources
DescriptionWhen using Microsoft SysInternals Process Monitor to troubleshoot an unrelated issue, I noticed a very large number of failed speedfan registry queries (see attached screenshot).

Process: speedfan.ext
Operation: RegQueryValue
Path: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Perflib\Disable Performance Counters
Detail: Length: 20
Additional InformationWhen no applications are running, these failed speedfan queries dominate background processes on my system, by far -- approximately one query per second. Although these queries take very little processor time, it would be good to avoid this waste of processor resources.

Because my machine is so old, I've been hesitant to upgrade to latest version of speedfan, but I will upgrade if you advise me to do so.

TagsNo tags attached.

This behavior is likely to have always been this way. This is the first time I use Process Monitor.
