If you’re using Win2k or XP (or, dare I say it, NT4), you’re probably used to using the Task Manager to see what’s currently going on in your system, and killing any processes that have run amok. I know that I have, and I greatly appreciate all of its additional functionality that makes it worlds better than its Win9x counterpart.
I must say that ProcessExplorer even blows Task Manager out of the water. It’s basically Task Manager on information overload – aside from the typical info, it also gives you a descriptionp of each process, and the processes are laid out in a tree like manner (so you can see which processes started other processes). Plus, if you have debugging symbols for your OS installed, you can view all sorts of neat thread and stack trace info as well (you can grab debug symbols for your OS from Microsoft’s web site). Now that is sweet.
