Replace Task Manager

Process Manager is an enhanced task manager that displays detailed information about programs and processes running on the computer. It shows all the standard information, including file name, description, CPU usage and a unique security risk rating for determining whether the running process should be terminated or blocked.



Click from "File" menu and select "Replace Task Manager", Process Manager will integrate itself into your system so that you can access the module by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del, or by right clicking on an empty part of the taskbar and selecting Task Manager. If you want to use the Windows Task Manager again, simply select the same menu item to remove the check mark in front of it.

Security Rating Bar — Telling you which processes are dangerous

Process Manager has a unique risk rating which is quite conclusive. It shows a list of the risk rating and allows you to determine whether the process should be terminated or removed. The green/red bars directly indicate the risks and necessity index for each process. The longer the green part is, the safer the running process is. Quite the contrary, the longer the red part is, the more dangerous the running process is. Therefore, you can remove the running process with a totally red bar and be careful to those with longer red bars. If all these information is not enough for your reference, you can also refer to other users' experience with a particular process through a click on the interface.
