      Any stability issues / CPU spikes with it? From what I understand, we tested a similar app in one of our branches a while back, and it wasn't stable (e.g. crashed half the time, screwed up the dekstop).

        As I remember it, it's fast, small and stable on Server 2003.

            No problems here either.

            At the moment bginfo is using nothng because it isn't loaded into anything. It's actually in put on top of the image you use for your desktop.
