This is amazing, but i have one issue.

The GPU never seems to move with the temp, i know little about computers and thus wonder if i need to change something for it to work with a GTX 550 ti??

hey man.. im not even going to try and fake the funk..
im not fortunate enough to have a Graphics Card :(
thus im not able to test this Display.

I can only suggest searching Google for "Rainmeter SpeedFanPlugin.dll".

Here's a quick page i found: [link]

Let me know what you find so maybe i can update Essential Bar :)

Hey.. Sorry for this fail question.. but.. how do i get the windows start icon and folders like yours?
I enabled the bar already but its just a black line with no windows start icon, time and the task folders. Just a black stroke...

Thanks..
