Editors' Review

+

If you've ever tried tracking down a process in Windows Task Manager, you know it's like looking for a needle in a haystack. Process Explorer makes the job a lot easier. This freeware utility displays running processes in an intuitive tree format that includes not only process names, but also program icons and other data, such as description, image, and processor time.

It also can identify the process for a given application window or look up a process name in Google--a handy way to spot spyware. Additional features offer detailed information on performance, DLLs, threads, handles, TCP/IP connections, security settings, and environments. Despite its lack of visual polish, Process Explorer is one of the best Task Manager replacements we've seen.

"Unloadable"

 |  Version: Process Explorer 11.04

Cons

When I tried to install it I only got a white screen and nothing. With all the malware and crap out there, something like that can sure make someone nervous.

"Unable to use"

February 19, 2008  |  By The Preacherman

 |  Version: Process Explorer 11.04

Cons

This might be something that is really good, but for me it has no usefulness. I am not computer savy and there is no helps that are available. No instructions, therefore, not useful at all.
