Even thought Windows’ Task Manager includes many positive aspects, its primary setback is that it does not provide you with too much information about the active processes.
WinUtilities Process Security
is a lightweight program that enables you to find out more details about the active Microsoft, network and third party processes.
The utility comes with a sleek, user-friendly and comprehensive interface which displays details about the various resources’ usage and active processes.
Similarly to Task Manager, you can preview name, priority and process ID. However, the program also includes additional data, such as location, parent process ID, threats and it can generate a report about the process that you can save as htm.
The highlight of the program is that it allows you to search for extra info about a certain process or third party app on the internet. Therefore, if you are unsure about whether you should close a process, you can simply search for it.
It is necessary to point out that WinUtilities Process Security displays quite a few details about third party application, such as language codes, creation dates, original file names and special builds. The data can prove useful if you suspect that a program you recently installed incorporates hidden components.
In addition, you can also leave your own feedback regarding active processes and their usefulness by accessing the comment function.
While it displays information about memory, processor and page file usage, the app does not allow you to take any action.
Not only does Task Manager provide more data about the aforementioned resources, but you can also can close processes that are eating too much memory or are over-soliciting the CPU from Open Resource Monitor if you are running newer versions of Windows.
WinUtilities Process Security is an overall satisfactory utility for learning more about the programs installed as well as any potential hidden components they come with.
