Editors' review

This handy application displays information on currently running processes in your system, although it requires an Internet connection to maximize its value. The easy-to-understand interface has direct process buttons, a log window listing the programs and applications currently running, and an online help file. iKnow Process Scanner displays details such as process name, PID, username memory usage, and path of presently operational process in your computer, all of which you can sort alphabetically. The program highlights each process using different color schemes depending on the process's security status, but the meaning of the display is clear only when the tool accesses the Internet. Each process can be stopped anytime using the Kill Process button. You can use the Update button for program updates, and specify the schedule for automatic updates. iKnow Process Scanner offers flexibility with its Settings button, which lets you configure the application in various ways. All users who want a quick view of live system processes and their information will find this easy-to-use freeware a great addition to their application lists.

    "Lots of Detail - Little Functionality"

    May 16, 2009   |   By Dealercub

    Version: iKnow Process Scanner 1.1

    Pros

    It's great that you can see all the processes and rank them by importance. You can apparently rank the processes, determine which starts up automatically and see which system resources the process is attached to.

    Cons

    But what good is a program where you double click the process as instructed and all you get is a bad or broken link or a network timeout, making you feel as if you downloaded it for nothing but also the frustration for the trouble?

    Summary

    This is just another one of those programs that on the face of it appears to have great functionality, attention to detail and attempts to demystify the plethora of processes that go on behind the scenes on your computer system, but in reality, under delivers on its promise.

    It's a free program where you can't even access the main website of the program's creators!

    If you've gone ahead and held on to this program, go ahead and just delete it and find another solution.

    "Doesn't work on Windows 98"

    April 21, 2006   |   By tdumelow

    Version: iKnow Process Scanner 1.1

    Pros

    I like the idea of the product. It may be perfectly okay on other platforms.

    Cons

    It installed okay, but wouldn't run - it complained it couldn't find PDH.DLL, which is apparently a Windows NT file.
