"Easily shows what's running and what's not."
Plenty of tabs for each catagory of software and programs, and you can see what is running on startup and what is not.
As a novice, i am a little cautious about stopping some programs as I am unsure if they are critical to operation or not. I would like more guidance on what is important to operation and what is just convenient !
I certainly would recommend this sortware to anyone, but for the novice operator, I would use caution if you wish to stop a program. You might want to do some research, before cutting a program.
