My processexplorer icon is set as a cpu monitor, but sometimes my laptop freezes for long periods, and all I see are a couple of red dots at the bottom of the icon, can I put it into a different mode that will show me some sort of indication?

I have Process Explorer running with the status bar icon. It's set as a cpu monitor. I've been using PE for a long time. I've set it up on this new laptop, but for some reason the PE icon is only showing anything happening in about the last pixel row of the icon, just some red pixels, and nothing else. It never shows any usage spikes, even during periods where my laptop response is very slow. It's during those periods that I want to get some information. Can the icon be configured to show other information that might be relevant?
