Despite some drawbacks, Process Manager 2 Lite has two major advantages over the Windows Task Manager.
First, it doesn't make you view processes in a tiny window. The interface is wide and professional-looking, with buttons on the top and the bottom of the panel to help you navigate through the task-managing minefield. Second, it offers a wide range of options that the preinstalled manager lacks. Process Manager 2 Lite lets you see a list of dependent modules for each process. It also shows you the amount of memory that a process is using, the associated processes, lets you kill a process outright, and more. Less important but still useful: You can save the process list in a log file.
However, the app can't display the process tree. Its program window no longer flickers as in the old version, but trying to drill deeper into a process often causes program crashes. On top of all that, Process Manager consumes 45MB of RAM, which is an astonishing amount for such a tiny utility. All things considered, although this version has seen significant improvements, you're probably better off finding another freeware utility to manage your system processes.
View all processes and services currently running on your system with their own icon and manage them. Show thread list, handle list and dependency list. Allow you to search for open files. Retreive window informations and basic command. Log the processes ans associated service activity and print or save it to file. Process Manger 2 Lite can be integrated with Windows by replacing original task manager. And other exciting features.
The programs does give more information that Windows Task Manager.
Although it does give more information that Windows Task Manager, it doesn't do much more than that. But, what more do you expect a task manager to do? Unless it can do a lot more than Windows Task Manager, why have another program that just sets in memory using already valuable resources? I will stay with the Windows-installed one for now.
