"The best standalone process manager...better than Task Manager"

February 03, 2006  |  By CableguyTK

 |  Version: Process Explorer 9.12

Pros

Its free.

It gives each process its respective program icon, making it easy to discern what each process is related to (if you otherwise didn't know).

Provides more information about each process than Task Manager could ever dream of providing...like location of the file, associated processses and DLL's, etc. Very very helpful.

It lets you do the same functions as Windows (XP/2000) task manager.

Im not sure if this works for Win95/98/ME, but if it does, then this is 1,000,000x better than the CTRL-ALT-DEL window.

Cons

I think the only con related to this program is that you cant replace the option in the right click context menu off the Windows task bar to open this program instead of Task Manager. That would be a neat feature I don't think the developers every considered.

"This gives you a good view of what is running in your machine."

January 17, 2006  |  By PauloDCruz

 |  Version: Process Explorer 9.12

Pros

It works without bugs.

Cons

It would be nice logging results, not just real time monitoring, so I could take some report after a period gathering data...

"Sysinternals Rocks!"

July 26, 2005  |  By csonon

 |  Version: Process Explorer 9.12

Pros

Strong program. Free. Wonderful people to deal with if you need anything. Way better then Task Manager. Recommend Filemon and Regmon for advanced users that want to see what files and registry keys are being accessed by certain programs.

Cons

Could look nicer, but for free, I won't complain.

"An ESSENTIAL tool."

May 20, 2005  |  By To the developer

 |  Version: Process Explorer 9.12

Pros

Brilliantly solves the problem of UNDELETABLE FILES and folders, which viruses and others leave behind them: Simply type in the filename, stop its 'handles' and then delete it.

"Excellent"

May 16, 2005  |  By davnshar2

 |  Version: Process Explorer 9.12

Pros

Outstanding. My computer was freezing up. It's about 6 years old. Downloaded this program, and found that the realtime antispyware scanners and realtime antivirus scanners were using up most of my CPU power. My older computer couldn't handle it ,so was freezing and going blue screen 2 or 3 times a day. I was despairing. Tried everything. I used Process Explorer and found that the scanners were too much. Once again, excellent program.

Cons

none
