Worst trial limitation

Stay away from this poor excuse for a task manager.

Blink and you'll miss Second TaskManager. Thanks to a truly strange trial limitation, the user interface is only available for view for 10 seconds at a time.

Second TaskManager's bland interface unnecessarily defaults to a maximized window every time it's opened. We had to minimize it each time for a better view. The window does include all of your running processes, including memory usage, max memory, threads, and CU time. A Help file is not included, so users must navigate through the processes on their own. Each time we opened the program, it closed after only a few seconds, which was barely enough time to find the information that we were looking for. It was only after clicking on the About button that we realized it was all part of the trial limitation, and not an actual glitch.

This program is a complete dud, and we wouldn't recommend it for anyone. We'd rather stick to our current task manager, and we recommend you do the same.
