Bginfo not updating boot time

There is a nice tool that gives you all these information exactly on your desktop wall paper. Sysinternals Bg Info automatically displays relevant information about a Windows computer on the desktop’s background.

In addition, the user can add freeform text and formatting using Rich Text controls (fonts, bold, italics, centering and so on).

The program doesn't require an installer; simply unpack it into the directory where you want it to reside and run it.

BGInfo can optionally log the information it generates into a database -- either a text file or a connection string to a SQL database -- so that historical information about system data can be collected and logged.

This can be done without actually printing anything to the desktop.

However, the most efficient and unobtrusive version I've ever seen for this sort of thing has to be Sysinternals' BGInfo.

BGInfo works by modifying the desktop wallpaper to display any number of system statistics that can be customized by the user.

You can also use the Windows Task Scheduler to run BGInfo on a regular basis to ensure long-running systems are kept up to date.
