Process Explorer is a software that successfully replaces the Windows Task Manager offering in the same time the possibility of getting fast information about the processes using the Internet.
Process Explorer is a useful software developed for identifying suspicious or buggy process or investigate why a particular DLL is locked in writing. It allows to monitor the activity of process in use by the system, making it possible to determine the folders, files and registry keys that an application has accessed. For each process it is displayed detailed information such as performance, network access made, etc.
Process Explorer allows you to view all Windows processes running in the form of a tree and taking into account their dependencies.
The software can replace the Windows Task Manager by allowing to kill / suspend a process, put it in the foreground, reduce it to an icon, or even change its priority in the allocation resources.
In case there are any doubts about a process, the software can perform a search on Google with a few clicks, to be fixed on the source program.
