PrcView

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

For those who use Task Manager, this free utility offers a much improved tool set. PrcViewer's spreadsheet-like interface offers few bells and whistles, but a great deal in the way functionality. The executable is started from an USB toolkit or standard folder. From a basic list of running processes, users easily select functions from pull-down menus and toolbar buttons.

PrcViewer greatly simplifies controlling processes. Users easily can set what information is available at a glance for each process. The list is immediately sorted simply by clicking a column header. Context-clicking any process opens a menu to quickly display the file properties, threads, modules, and other process data. The same menu makes it a snap to kill, set the priority or affinity of the selected process. For an unfamiliar process, you also can open a Google search in your default browser with a click on the menu. Displaying a process tree, start-up applications and all modules are additional tools quickly accessed with a click or two.

Advanced users will greatly appreciate the easily configured process monitor graph. While it would have been helpful to be able to change font size, the program font is serviceable. Any user who has opened the Task Manager to get process information, will find PrcViewer a much more useful freeware tool.
