Editors' Review

Like its free counterpart, AnVir Task Manager Pro offers users a one-stop shop for managing their system's running processes and applications. After putting it to the test, we found very few discernible differences between the two.

The program's user interface is a bit overwhelming. It uses tabs to distinguish system categories, such as start-up, applications, processes, and services. Command buttons at the top of the window give you the ability to kill processes, block processes, free memory, and select a parent process. The bottom of the window details CPU, memory, and disk usage, but it's cluttered and hard to read. We preferred hovering our mouse over the Taskbar icons to find the same information. Each tab displayed a thorough listing of system information, but the navigation was awkward. For example, when we tried to select one of the processes listed, the program was slow to recognize our selection. The information window, detailing the specific selection, kept disappearing on us as we hovered our mouse.

Help is available through the publisher's Web site, but novices might still have trouble navigating the busy interface during the 20-day trial. AnVir Task Manager Pro works, but it doesn't seem to offer much of an incentive to upgrade from the free version.

    "Became a piece of crap"

    May 04, 2012   |   By mauriceg14

    Version: AnVir Task Manager Pro 6.7.1

    Pros

    Still nice process manager

    Cons

    In the recent version, stupid tools including a registry manager that killed my PC(could not boot any longer - Thanks to Acronis I had recent image) have been added.
    Now Anvir Pro is slow, non-responsive. they jeopardized the whole app.

    Summary

    I will re-install a former version that I really used to enjoy. If someone has a recommendation for a fancy, professional process manager, I will certainly consider it.

    "Excellent and easy to use"

    July 09, 2008   |   By Trendkiller

    Version: AnVir Task Manager Pro 4.9

    Pros

    I caught a nasty bug from myspace(i had been up for over 24 hours and was way off my game). The bug disabled task manager and created horrible popups and kept installing fresh spyware. Fixing the registry did no good, which told me it was a process. But the bug had disabled task manager. This program enabled me to take back my pc without taking it in for service or reformatting!

    Cons

    Haven't found anything I don't like yet

    "The best taskmanager I've found until yet"

    January 30, 2005   |   By Mihail-Klr

    Version: AnVir Virus Destroyer 3.7

    Pros

    It already helped me to stop some viruses and trojans. It's just great. It can even show you, wich dll's and exe are used by a process!!! And you can find a task you've looked for much faster when you know it's icon, 'couse this prog is also showing you the icon of a process, so far there is one.

    "AnVir -- One Miraculous Program!"

    July 03, 2004

    Version: AnVir Virus Destroyer 3.7

    Summary

    One month ago, in a downloading frenzy, I became infected with adware, malware, spyware, call it what you want. It was a NIGHTMARE! All of those hellish critters hatched into a worm and a trojan horse. My homepage got hijacked routinely. I NEVER thought I would have control of my computer again. I was losing my identity (literally). Not even my dog knew me! I spent hours & hours trying to "fix" my PC! One program wanted me to reinstall the spyware,etc. or my computer "wouldn't run correctly". Another AV program required me to edit items from my registry...the last place you would ever want me to be! I don't have a technical bone in my body and I needed serious help.
    AnVir, by far, is the best anti-virus program on the market. They gave a 20-day trial of their program. Then you can purchase it for a year if you want. I bought it and I'm so cheap, I squeak when I walk!! After the initial set-up, it needs no user intervenion. You can see exactly what is running. If there is a virus, it removes it immediately...no fanfare, no notification, AnVir just fixes it. POOF...GONE!!! And after all of the hours of "fixing and editing"? Somewhere in cyberspace, there is a clone of my computer and me.

    "Nice work!"

    February 05, 2004

    Version: AnVir Virus Destroyer 3.7

    Summary

    I installed the program. It said i have *this virus* and it got rid of it. Nice work!

    I've had so many problems with my computer to the point of getting a new one... I thought my computer was simply obsolete and that it couldn't handle the "newer stuff". I downloaded this Virus Destroyer and it is unbelievable how well and FAST my computer is. I used to get error messages, freeze ups, couldn't shut down properly, the list goes on. This virus destroyer killed everything affecting this machine. I love the fact that I can change the start-up, it allows me to run the least amount of programs when i start up. This alone speeds things up. It continues to get the well known kleiz virus that is from e-mails. I will definitely buy it. Very simple to use as well. I'm still amazed how fast everything is now.
