"Powerful"

January 26, 2005

 |  Version: Security Task Manager 1.6c

Summary

I had a virus which could not be removed or quarantined by Norton, AdAware, Spybot, etc. Nor could I kill the process manually. This product, which installs and runs very quickly, is able to identify and link the process with the files - it stopped the process and quarantined the file. It didn't even need to do a scan of the disk like anti-virus software since it is more oriented to the processes, so it was very quick.
You need to exercise some caution using it as that kind of ability could cause problems if you got rid of something you shouldn't.

I haven't really even looked at what else it can do, but this ability to provide such detailed info and linkages about running processes should be invaluable in eliminating malicious or unneeded processes, improving both security and efficiency. Seems well priced at only $29.

"A super-detailed, upgraded version of the Windows Task Manager"

December 30, 2004

 |  Version: Security Task Manager 1.6c

Summary

I was so impressed with the trial version that I purchased the complete retail within 30 minutes of downloading/installing the program. The greatest feature that impressed me the most is the level of thoroughness and detail that this program has to offer concerning all the processes that are running/have been running on my system. It doesn't just find display processes that aren't normally easy to find -- it also displays the file path, title, and originating manufacturer product. And in addition to a separate detailed look at each individual process/program, it also offers the ability to search about it via Google.com for more information. It would be redundent for me to list any more functions/ benefits this program has to offer. It doesn't even need to install, which lessens the chance of pesky hidden AdWare that is usually bundled with programs liek this. Just unzip the file, and run from the unzipped directory. Download the trial version today to see for yourself!

"tool locates tasks others cannot"

December 05, 2004

 |  Version: Security Task Manager 1.6c

Summary

A coworker's system (XP home) was infected with everything under the sun. By rights, I should have just wiped and reinstalled, but it's interesting to me to know how to eradicate pests, so I spent time on it. I wound up with one ineradicable DLL, mad.dll, a piece of the TV Media malware. It wasn't launching a visible process, but even in safe mode, it could not be removed from the registry. It detected removal and reloaded itself at once. I wound up needing to unload it by booting the box from another live system. I might have been able to do the same with work on the key's permissions, though.

However, of all the tools I ran - AdAware, Spybot S & D, the command line Sophos scanner - only STM could even tell me that this dll was loading and persisting. I've just grabbed a copy to add to my work toolkit as well.

(Of the tools, I think their effectiveness would be ranked:
Sophos CLI in safe mode;
STM;
Ad-Aware;
Spybot.)

You sort of have to start with an aggressive tool to hose the worst offenders off the OS, then you can start looking for the remaining cruft.
