"Works very well, easy and quick"
Presents a lot of information and gives the ability to determine what processes are necessary (which program is associated with each of the svchost processes, for example) and lists everything running. It's a real-time snapshot of what is going on.
Takes a bit of time to get familiar with all of the info made available - more of a comment than a con.
This is part of my toolkit. I have it on a flashdrive so that it's available when and where I need it. My primary use is determining what is running, what may be causing problems and if there are any unexpected processes running. It has helped me find and remove unwanted software and helps when tracking down system slowdowns.
