WinTasks Professional - Security, information and control of running tasks in Windows.

 

Filename: wintasksprotrial2.exe, 3.9Mb
Type: Shareware. Free to try, $49.95 to buy.

WinTasks Professional, along with your anti-virus, spyware and firewall software puts the last piece of security in place.

But I like it for the information. Every ctrl-alt-del and pull up the processes window? What the heck is all that stuff? They're often "invisible" tasks and some of them are essential to the operation of Windows but then there are the others.....Wonder why it's taking forever for Windows to come up or things are slowing down? Outside of a broken or corrupted registry background tasks are probably going to be the single biggest cause of your computer to slow down. Some may be applications you've installed that are perfectly okay they just kill your computer and you want to whack them. Others are harmful background tasks associated with spyware, viruses and worms turning your computer into a CPU eating zombie.

WinTasks Professional gives you detailed information about each and every process that is running. It provides you with the tools to terminate and eliminate any program that may disrupt, damage, slowdown or crash your system.

For example. svchost.exe will always show up in task manager as is a system process belonging to Windows which handles processes executed from DLLs. This process has to run or Windows won't. You wouldn't want to terminate this process.

However svchost.exe is also assocated with the W32.Welchia.Worm. It takes advantage of a Windows vulnerability (which a patch has been issued for).

But how do you determine if it's a necessary component or part of a worm? WinTasks will tell you along with the above info about the svchost.exe process. Cool.

Be fully in charge of Windows and nail down that last bit of control. Win Tasks is incredibly simple to use for an incredibly complicated area and you might be surprised to find what's running on your computer, all without your knowledge.
