I think this is an excellent system explorer! While I certainly liked sysinternal's Process Explorer, and replaced the task manager with it, this has now become my task manager replacement. Faster than Process Explorer and has a lot of cool features.

Yes, it really is fine, this System Explorer.  :up:
But why must half the tray icon be taken by these two letters (S over E) ? :-\   systray.jpg

I just don't like that part!  :mad:

Edited:
When sitting in tray only, there is no CPU usage to mention. With the window open, CPU usage is 10%.

Hi Folks,

Another company who used to bundle their products together - Extensoft - now has unbundled some to make a "Free Task Manager" and a Disk Space Analyzer and a Screen Capturer and a Video Converter.  A couple of reviews of their products look favorable.  The Task Manager may not be as hefty as the one above, yet still may be nice. The Disk Space Analyzer may lack the graphics of WinDirStat and JDiskReport, but may have some other advantages.  I am doing a spot of checking.  The web site is simple to navigate.

Shalom,

- while the Extensoft was a little too simple for my taste, it may be about time to test SystemExplorer again - though it hasn't been updated for half a year, (it is now at version 1.5_Stable), but since the last time I tried it, I have gotten myself a Vista.:

System Explorer goes open for maximum customization.

Version 1.5 will introduce brand new plugin system.

There is no need to know any programming language for make basic customization of System Explorer.
Complex plugins can be developed under any development environment which can produce WIN32 DLL binary.

Latest Test Version of System Explorer 1.5 + SDK can be downloaded from http://systemexplore...ystemExplorerSDK.zip

Online Documentation is in progress...you can visit our Wiki at http://systemexplorer.wetpaint.com/

Do you have any questions regarding SE SDK ?
Feel free to contact me on ICQ 23411518

http://forum.misterg...ic.php?f=9&t=132

However: there is not happening too much at the forum - no plugins! - and I am somehow not convinced that the author can take his program much further.

System Explorer is available in three major versions. Version 2.0 has brand new interface and it's compatible with Windows 7. Many features were improved and bugfixed. Version 1.5 has "Task Manager" interface and works good on Windows XP/Windows Vista. Version 1.4 works on Windows 2000. Version 1.5 and 1.4 are no longer supported and maintained.

System Explorer is available in two major distributions. Installer version contains installer wizard which help you to easy install and setup the System Explorer on your system. Second distribution is Portable, which is one zip file containing all necessary files. Portable version can be extracted to any directory, flash disk, burn to CD/DVD. Portable version runs in special mode and do not make any footprints to operating system (by default).

It is nice, and (of course) even better than version 1.5.  :up:
