Editors' Review

Another way to approach computer security, What's My Computer Doing is a freeware program that gives users an unprecedented look into the inner workings of their PC. Anyone who is concerned about viruses, or wondering about any type of spyware being used to monitor online activities can get the answers to those questions using this freeware.

What's My Computer Doing has a minimal look with a window at the top that shows each program currently in operation on the PC, and where it is operating. If the user wants to know more, they simply click on the program in question and below the top window statistics such as name of the application, when and where it was installed, and details such as the product name, producer, and version are displayed. Other details included are security, external links, and known problems with the application. What's My Computer Doing also combines the benefits of the Windows Task Manager and uninstaller, allowing you to easily close or terminate a process and uninstall suspect programs. The one drawback we found with the software is that it was difficult at times to click on an item using the scroll bar. Aside from this minor issue, everything worked well and the software was simple to understand and use.

What Is My Computer Doing downloads, installs, and starts up quickly. This is one of the better freeware security products we have seen. It ran without issue and uses little memory and we recommend it for all users who want an easy to way see what's happening on their PC.

"Useless. Should have zero stars !"

May 30, 2014  |  By zippythechimp

 |  Version: What's My Computer Doing 1.07

Pros

NONE!! NEVER INSTALLS CORRECTLY !!

Cons

Does not install properly. Starting the program results in a small window proudly exclaiming a DLL error.

Summary

Useless. I've installed 100's of program from CNET to try them or often, to use them. This one is USELESS.

"Don't download this! April 2014 this contains malware!"

April 23, 2014  |  By gaia1muse

 |  Version: What's My Computer Doing 1.07

Pros

Couldn't try it...see below.

Cons

Downloaded this and my browser was hijacked and conduit installed. It ran my computer for a while and took a half a day to remove....

Summary



Updated on Apr 23, 2014

The program gave me no option to do a custom install....which I always do. And 'Conduit' the downloaded malware verges on being a virus.

"always read the install messages"

July 24, 2013  |  By gbswales1

 |  Version: What's My Computer Doing 1.07

Pros

looks ok haven't tested seriously yet but I would prefer to see programes running rather than just processes which are not always easy to understand - hoping this will do that

Cons

As another person says you should remember there is no such thing as a free lunch - almost all decent freeware (including things like adobe reader) try and get you to install additional software - that is how the product development gets paid for - SO always do custom installs for all free/share ware - in fact it is a good habit for ALL programmes as most install features you might not need or want

"Does what TaskManager can't - LOVE this."

January 22, 2013  |  By wholereason

 |  Version: What's My Computer Doing 1.06

Pros

1. Shows you the actual programs that are accessing your hard drive in real time. TaskManager and ProcessExplorer can't do that, can they?
2. Has lots of secondary information on each process if you click on it
3. Has many functions like Terminate process or close program, see Program Properties, get info from kaspersky.com

Cons

Previous reviewer did a standard install, so got bloatware installed! Silly user! Do a custom install and you can avoid all bloatware by clicking one checkbox.

Summary

I love this program. It showed me how much time chrome.exe spends busying up my hard drive. As well as terminal server, which i did not know was such a drive hog. I'd almost pay for this software ;). It's good. And I am no shill for the developer. I've been wanting this function for a while, thank you!

"Loaded with AOL Bloat"

November 12, 2012  |  By TzarIgor

 |  Version: What's My Computer Doing 1.05

Pros

Not many. A little better than TaskManager but inferior to ProcessExplorer.

Cons

The utility is bloated with AOL crap. After installing the utility all of your browsers are reconfigured for AOL search and shopping re-directors.
It is virtually one big Virus from a "legit" corporation.
After uninstalling the utility it took me about an hour to find and purge all of the modifications AOL made to my 3 browsers.

Summary

Warning! Install only if you wish to be wedded to AOL.
Get ProcessExplorer (a Microsoft utility) if you want to easily monitor everything that is going on in your computer .. without built in spam.
