BgInfo is a Microsoft utility that can be used to show system statistics on the desktop. This is particularly useful if you often need access to information such as the IP address, memory available or system information. If you need to use this program a lot, then you can set it to start up automatically with your computer, and also update automatically without the dialogue box involvement. Both of these configurations only need to be done once.
