If all you need is a way to identify the RGB values of a color in an image, you can do that with Windows Paint. Open the picture with Paint, click the Color Picker tool, click the desired color in your image. Paint sets it as Color 1. Then click the Edit Colors icon to display the values.

I'm running Win 8.1 and used to use the fee, low overhead ColorPix tool to
discover the color of an onscreen item.

ColorPix doesn't function anymore, at least not while my security apps are
active (haven't tested turning them off).

Anyone know of a free replacement tool that is ad-free and isn't going to
compromise my PC?
