Process Explorer Comments

Fair

about Process Explorer Apr 2012

It's pretty decent with how much data it provides, but it starts too slowly and has the chance to fail when your computer's running poorly. Not a good replacement for Windows Task Manager, but decent if you want to find information about your system otherwise.

Very true, I keep it running using the /t switch and have it start via the start-up folder, but I never select the option to replace Task Manager. Everything needs a back-up.

Nice idea, but I experience that ProcessExplorer is really slow. Not too slow but if my Computer really hangs I can't use it anymore at all. Then, task manager is the only help to rescue me.

I always have this program running, Task Manager just isn't enough, this program can help you pin point the problem, and has a fun-little targeting tool for shutting down that app that you're just not sure of what it is, aka, a lot of those annoying virus that name themselves system type file names.
