Nice find.

Having said that it is a subset of WinTasks (so if you have that installed it doesn't add anything) and the advertising on the info pages for other Uniblue products is pretty full on (there is lots of talk of Trojans etc. and how WinTasks Pro can solve all your problems).

I haven't looked much into it, but does it offer something that Process Explorer from http://www.sysinternals.com doesn't?

Check it out.  It gets you the detailed information on the Process.  Very helpful when troubleshooting and the often cryptic process names..

Trouble is there are lots of processes (usually the ones you don't recognise) that aren't in the database, same as for WinTasks.

Shame they don't offer the opportunity to submit information about unrecognised processes.

I use Process Explorer and have that replace the default Windows task manager. Too bad ;). Looks like a neat tool.

Thanks I hadn't noticed that before (or on the Uniblue parent site).
