Editors' Review

Process Explorer is a helpful utility program that details your computer's running processes in a more visual representation than the standard Windows Task Manager. A host of smart tools and design options are provided with this program, but some technical errors are likely to inhibit Process Explorer's abilities.


Customizable interface: While the interface is not very attractive, it provides all needed information in an uncomplicated manner, which is all you need for these types of applications. Process Explorer also features many design options to configure symbols and colors to help you build a more personalized and streamlined layout.

Awesome tools: Locating running programs is very easy with Process Explorer's fast search tool, and processes are easily killed with one click. The unique Internet search tool is incredibly clever because it allows you to see if certain processes are known for being harmful.


Broken objects: One major error that we found during our tests was that Process Explorer has a few broken links and features. One of the most important objects, the Help section, failed to load at all; and if this is a common occurrence, novice individuals may find this program to be too hard to use.

Stability problems: While this program runs very quickly, Process Explorer crashed twice during our tests of routine features, and we could not find any obvious reason for what caused the crashing. We do not see this as a large concern because Process Explorer reopened perfectly after each crash.

Bottom Line

Process Explorer definitely surpasses Task Manager in all categories, but the constant performance errors and missing links left us unsatisfied. Should these errors be repaired, we think that all types of individuals will find Process Explorer to be of some use.
