Editors' Review

+

This handy utility enhances the functionality of Windows' Task Manager by warning you about potential system threats.

Upon launch, Security Task Manager automatically scans your PC to find all running programs. It then displays information about each application in a sortable list, including name, CPU usage, size, manufacturer, and risk factor. Highlighting each entry gives you more detailed data on running processes, including a description of what it does and how much of a threat it poses to your system. If Security Task Manager finds a potentially malevolent program, you can remove or quarantine it.

Especially handy is the feature that automatically searches Google for information about a specific program with a single click. Though it doesn't offer a wide range of features, this program will be useful to those looking for an extra layer of system protection.

 |  Version: Security Task Manager 1.8g

Pros

Its Free
It works as advertised
Fast
Results are easy to understand

Cons

I have not discovered any so far.

Summary

The program points directly to programs taking up too much space on your computer. And the information is detailed enough so you can check out unknown programs to see if they are a security risk. For example, you can Google details from this infomation to find out if you have a virus on your computer. The program is super fast, so it can be used everyday with interfering in your daily routine.

2011-04-17 19:15:36  |  By unklray123

 |  Version: Security Task Manager 1.8

Pros

easy download and install. didn't cause any problems

Cons

none so far

Summary

they say it lets your computer run faster because it integrates with windows better. I can't tell any difference between it and Avast.
I trust Avast more.
I do know Norton's is a big hog and I won't use it.
I have 5 computers and I have it on one. we shall see.

Updated on Apr 17, 2011

I have to wonder why it is so highly rated after reading some of the other reviews.
I haven't had to pay for it, I have had it 2 months.

"didn't see what editors raved about."

April 13, 2011  |  By nan0mann

2011-04-13 18:06:36  |  By nan0mann

 |  Version: Security Task Manager 1.8

Pros

I could find none.

Cons

Trial versions demonstrated nothing.

Summary

Trial resembles too many of the bait and crap web sites free analysis. The free part is readily done by any number of reliable freeware applications. There is the problems bait without any details or nature of even one.

"Limited use since its a Trial Tool"

April 08, 2011  |  By Macron

2011-04-08 08:50:19  |  By Macron

 |  Version: Security Task Manager 1.8

Pros

Runs fine and scans and presents as indicated. Many legitimate processes are flagged all be it not a high risk.

You still have to determine which is not wanted and really a risk or threat.

Cons

It's a limited time trial tool!
It requires more than normal knowledge of processes.
It's not something I would use often. I'd use one of the other tools which are not a trial. Sysinternals has one as well.

Summary

Interesting and does what is says. I tested on a Windows 7 32bit system.
