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.

It's listed under the I/O tab on the System Information window.

In version 14.01, how do you get the "Network Bytes" graph to appear in the System Information page?

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.
