Unfortunately, I'm having serious issues with v3. I'm running Windows 7 SP1 32-bit.
I have installed, and reverted to v2.99 on two separate occassions. I've had the exact same problems both times that I have installed v3...
Immediately after installing and starting v3, it maxes out one core of my dual core CPU. That one core will stay maxed out as long as v3 is installed and running, even if the UI is closed.
WiseTray.exe is the culprit, as you can see in these two images - one from Task Manager, one from Wise Care itself. (Yes I have a lot of processes running.)
Then, if I should click on any of the items listed under Hardware Overview, the UI completely locks up and never releases. I eventually have to kill Wise Care via Task Manager. The UI won't respond to anything once it freezes, just stays on "Loading...". See below:
So far, it looks like I'm the only person who is having such an issue. Must be something about my particular computer. As it is, I'm going to have to stay with v2.99.
