    I’m those how like more on-geek :) version from this utility, I actually use System Explorer but, do you know more advanced Task Manager replacements?

    I’ve tried latest ‘Auslogics Task Manager’ (installer, not portable) and, be it this latest version as well as previous ones, I can never get the Applications (through View/Applications) to show up! Other panels yes, Applications no…
    I’ve notified Auslogics of the problem when asked why removing their software, still waiting for their acknowledgment.

    Hadn’t I mentioned Process Explorer enough times in post? :)

    @Transcontinental

    Applications panel doesn’t show much anyway, only those applications that currently have visible windows. As for me it is useless. Again – probably layer of simplicity for those who might be confused thrown into process mess. :)

    Quite true, Rarst, Applications Panel isn’t essential, but nevertheless why doesn’t it work? It shows more than applications that currently have visible windows, for instance I run the software Hostsman, and both of its modules appear in Applications Panel in Windows Task Manager (‘HostsMan’ and ‘HostsServer Control Panel’), they do have windows, but hidden.

    @Rarst: Process Explorer, I don’t like so much, I mean others advanced task managers replacements.

  • @Chocobito

    Sorry, I struggled myself but in the end Process Explorer is ultimate stuff. :) Took me some time to ignore overly technical parts that I have no clue about.

  • @DataRat

    Yep, that stuff got much improved in Vista. Not that I use Vista, so have to settle for Process Explorer.

    I guess most of us are aware of latest “Process Hacker” Process Manager ( http://processhacker.sourceforge.net/ ). This is something, perhaps the most elaborated Process Manager I’ve encountered, installs on demand as a service, deals deep in the Kernel, has authority on whatever anti-virus as well as nasty nests :) But I’d use 10% of its potential, this is a geek business!

  • @Transcontinental

    Bookmarked to check out. :) Will see how it compares to Process Explorer.

    “Process Hacker” requires .Net Framework 2.0 by the way. Iy is gorgeous, has a stable release but remains in development.
