checks temperature of internal HDDs
A program to monitor hard drive temperature, it's there if you installed it!

HDD Thermometer ist eine Application, die zur Überwachung der Festplattentemperaturen gedacht ist. Sie ist kein Teil von Windows. Wenn diese Software auf Ihrem Rechner installiert ist, dann haben Sie diese selbst installiert und sollten in der Taskleiste eine Zahl (=Temperatur Ihrer Festplatte) angezeigt bekommen. Ein Rechtsklick mit der Maus zeigt Einzelheiten. Wenn Sie das Programm nicht selbst installiert haben und auch nicht nutzen, dann kann sich -trotz gleicher Dateilänge gegenüber dem Original- natürlich auch ein Virus als HDD Thermometer ausgeben; nichts leichter als das.
