    What format is the tool in? Is it something you could add into an image for the machine and deploy that way?

    Not sure yet tbh, I have just being told that they are devoping a desktop gadget that needs to be ran on specific desktops.
    I would prefer not to do it via the image, incase that they change it.
    Not my choice, just got told what is happening

    Don't we all know that feeling .. best bet is to take a look at that link or to ask them (as they're developing it) to look at making it easy to deploy and control via GPO (so a nice MSI to push it out to machines in the first place with a custom GPO to turn it on/off for the different users).

    The other option you have (depending on what information you want to put out) is using BGInfo ..
