7 April 2009 By Rakshit


There are times when you feel Windows Task Manager is not sufficient to track any particular troublesome process. It happens when suddenly your system starts to behave indifferently and you begin investigating the convicted process. You end up with one and only solution – reboot the system. But what if you in middle of something very important and suddenly your machine stops responding?

For these types of adverse situation and many more, Process Explorer comes into the picture as your savior. Process Manager is an advanced freeware process management utility that displays running processes in a tree structure that includes not only the process name but its icon, command-line, full image path, memory statistics, user account, security attributes and much more.

Its main window is subdivided into two panels – the first one displays the basic information like currently active processes names, account under which they are running etc. whereas the other one which is the bottom panel gives in depth information about process selected in the top window. The information displayed in bottom panel is based on the mode that has been configured in Process Explorer. If it is in HANDLE mode you’ll see the handles that the process selected in the top window has opened or if Process Explorer is in DLL mode you’ll see the DLLs and memory-mapped files that the process has loaded.

This is a very handy tool that can give you full information about any running processes and can be very useful if you want to track down any spywares in your system. But if you are not a technology geek then you may find the detailed information a bit difficult to comprehend. Nevertheless, anyone with an average knowledge of computer system can use this utility to their advantage.
