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.

    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.
