Processes under control


Ever wonder what processes running on your system? Of course, you can oversee the processes run on a computer with help of TaskManager – built-in program. But its abilities is not enough. I personally recommend you Process Explorer by Mark Russinovich

Process Explorer

Process Explorer is an advanced process management utility that picks up where Task Manager leaves off. It will show you detailed information about a process including its icon, command-line, full image path, memory statistics, user account, security attributes, and more. When you zoom in on a particular process you can list the DLLs it has loaded or the operating system resource handles it has open. A search capability enables you to track down a process that has a resource opened, such as a file, directory or Registry key, or to view the list of processes that have a DLL loaded.

By default Process Explorer sorts processes into the system process tree. The process tree reflects the parent-child relationship between processes where child processes are shown directly beneath their parent and right-indented

You can also find any visible window’s process by by dragging the target-like toolbar button over the window in question. Process Explorer will select the owning process entry in the process view.

Another very useful feature is “Search Online” – right click on the process and selecting this entry will result in Process Explorer launching the system’s configured Internet browser and initiating an Internet search for the selected process’ name.
