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.

"so far so good"

April 17, 2011  |  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

 |  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

 |  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.

"Process explorer for novices and experts"

April 08, 2011  |  By Furner

 |  Version: Security Task Manager 1.8

Pros

Easy to understand, whats running on the pc

Cons

Check manually if a process is Malware or just a CPU/Memory-consuming process

Summary

Sysinternals Process explorer is for experts, and Security Task Manager is for the rest of us.

"Waste of time"

April 06, 2011  |  By Alan Mintaka

 |  Version: Security Task Manager 1.8

Pros

Easy to uninstall

Cons

Identified a dozen false positives

Summary

All of the potentially dangerous processes ID'd by this program were false positives. Because you still have to look at a list of running processes and do your own research on which ones might be dangerous, this program is no better than Windows Task Manager or Process Explorer when it comes to flagging dangerous processes. In fact it's not nearly as good as Process Explorer, which displays a lot more information about running processes. So what's the point of Security Task Manager? Nothing Is it a waste of time to install, evaluate, and uninstall? Yes.
