System Explorer

December 10, 2008 at 2:12 pm Leave a comment

I’ve recommended Process Explorer in the past.  System Explorer is a stream-lined (execution-wise) and updated version.  I haven’t as yet replaced Task Manager with it, although there’s no reason not to; it will happily call Task Manager to the top again.  You can explore processes and see what’s going on (by the way, Vista really is a hog compared to XP RAMwise), look at running modules*–stop processes (more easily than with Task Manager, but not by much)–and actually do a lot of things.  Including put it in the Start folder so it’s there, minimized on starting if you want.  It also does not take up a lot of resources.

*You can also check legitimacy of at least most modules.  Unfortunately this says nothing about detecting rootkits.

P.S.  It’s freeware, surprisingly enough
