Little tool to check and modify the windows system timer.

If you want to know what this is about, you should read this article:
Windows Timer Resolution: Megawatts Wasted

The matter is in my opinion less dramatic as the author of the article states, but he has written down a comprehensive collection of facts about the windows timer. Excellent article!

Source code is here:https://github.com/tebjan/TimerTool

Verison 3 minimizes to system tray and can be started with command line arguments "-t peroidVal" and "-minimized". e.g. put a .bat file into your autostart with the following code:

C:\PathToTool\TimerTool.exe -t 0.5 -minimized

Version 2 can set 0.5 ms as timer resolution.

If you like it: Donate some dev bucks, thanks a lot!
