Editors' review

It's deceptively simple, but this application quickly and cleanly closes all programs, and just as easily restores them. SmartClose's five-icon interface smartly uses tooltips to quickly and adequately explain program operation. Intermediate to advanced users will install and operate the program with no further instruction.

SmartClose's primary function leads the user through a wizard to close all programs except for critical Windows functions. Listed options are well explained as the program advances. Before closing anything, the application takes a quick system snapshot; storing it to reset your computer to that same state at a later date. During testing, SmartClose handled various programs very well. It was rare that it couldn't stop a process. On those occasions, the application invoked SmartKill to finish off a process quickly. Restoring programs is as simple and quick as stopping them. A similar wizard opens a system snapshot. Users merely check which apps to restore. A helpful option removes running processes from the list.

SmartClose is a freeware application every user should keep in his or her system toolbox. It's one program you'll turn to often.
