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.

Developer's Description

Can you trust your PC? Admirable, if you answer with "Yes". But perhaps even you are curious why your hard disk LED is sometimes flashing. Or why the CPU fan gets louder even if you're not doing anything. The free software "What's my computer doing?" tells you why. It shows all programs (with details!), that are accessing your hard disk or using the CPU. Furthermore you have the option to close these programs or even uninstall them.
