Pentium Bug Checker\windows\system32\pentnt.exe

Check your processor for the Floating Point Division Pentium bug.

To Open

Command Prompt pentnt

Description

Back in 1994, a bug was discovered in a certain number of Intel Pentium processors in which certain mathematical operations would yield an incorrect result. The bug was fixed in all Pentium processors produced after 1994. In the unlikely event that you're running Windows XP on a computer that old, open a command prompt and type pentnt to test your processor for the bug.
