Servers running Win2008.  One of my colleagues has installed a Sys Internal app that displays the system info on the desktop.  Categories are Boot Time:, CPU:, Default Gateway: DHCP Server:, DNS Server:, Free Space:, HostName:, and several others.

I've looked for it in Programs and Features and don't see it listed. And I've looked for it in Task Manager - Processes, but nothing jumps out at me there.

Can someone tell me the name of this app?

Sure, It's called BGinfo. Stand-alone executable.

BGinfo.exe
should be able to find it a C:\Program Files\SysInternalsSuite or something similar.
