Editors' Review

+

For those who use Task Manager, this free utility offers a much improved tool set. PrcViewer's spreadsheet-like interface offers few bells and whistles, but a great deal in the way functionality. The executable is started from an USB toolkit or standard folder. From a basic list of running processes, users easily select functions from pull-down menus and toolbar buttons.

PrcViewer greatly simplifies controlling processes. Users easily can set what information is available at a glance for each process. The list is immediately sorted simply by clicking a column header. Context-clicking any process opens a menu to quickly display the file properties, threads, modules, and other process data. The same menu makes it a snap to kill, set the priority or affinity of the selected process. For an unfamiliar process, you also can open a Google search in your default browser with a click on the menu. Displaying a process tree, start-up applications and all modules are additional tools quickly accessed with a click or two.

Advanced users will greatly appreciate the easily configured process monitor graph. While it would have been helpful to be able to change font size, the program font is serviceable. Any user who has opened the Task Manager to get process information, will find PrcViewer a much more useful freeware tool.

"better utility then "Windows Task manager""

October 30, 2007  |  By edave10

 |  Version: PrcView 5.2.15.1

Pros

I was looking for some free utility for Windows OS so that I could get information on what processes and threads are keeping my CPU busy. This utility gives that information very well and also provides information about the processes and their expected functionality.

Cons

Nothing to mention at this time.

No nonsense, straight to the point software. Good UI, no bloat. Does what it does - perfectly. Beats ms-taskmgr hands down.

The system tray icon is a bit dull. ;)

"Easier to read than Windows Task Manager"

July 04, 2007  |  By juanc5030

 |  Version: PrcView 5.2.15.1

Pros

The overall display is much easier to interpret than Windows Task Manager. But best is being able to choose processes to monitor in a graph format - a much clearer way to see what is going on.

Pros

Gives an excellent view of the process items that are active.

The program highlights some items that link to additional information; I was not sure I wanted to sign up, so I elected not to do so.
