Thanks a lot. It will be important.

I was forgetting to ask this: It would be (for me) a great improvement to be able to sort entries by date (modified) or at least to be able to score by the date of the file/folder. Is this possible? I hope so.

It is very difficult e.g. when you don't know the name of what you are searching for but only the extension to find it in a huge list. If it is sorted by date it is more likely to be able to find out.

I just began test this version 2 and I'm quite impressed by the power and simplicity. I have only one tiny suggestion: to be possible to sort results by modification date and not only by scoring.


I would like to try the this new version 2. The new features are exactly what I need. Please provide me the link.

I use Process Explorer from Sysinternals (it's one of the best), to track this kind of issues or malware running etc..

I began to have this CPU picks after install of the Windows Genuine Advantage tool.
Anyway it is not quite a big issue because it doesn't happen everyday and with the same extent.
For example, I had today an update, I think, related with the last VML exploit.

About my disk it is two months old only, it is in fact the newer part of my PC. The oldest is the motherboard and processor (Athlon XP 1.3).

Thanks for your ideas about this. If something goes odd I will open a new post.

Hello again

I have only for 1-2 minutes this heavy burden on CPU while Microsoft Update is reading in disk. If this is usuall I don't know.
I have an antivirus but it is very light.
To what relates to disk it is in DMA mode.

I think this has to do with what is installed by Microsoft mainly related with OS copy validation ( windows genuine validation(?)). But this is my opinion. I'm not an expert.

Coming back..

After a normal boot SVCHOST loads Microsoft Update and it begins readings in disk taking all the CPU for 1-2 minutes. PT "tells" me that SVCHOST level was lowered but unfortunately it didn't get results. Any ideas?

I'll see if this version is able to control Microsoft Updates and SVCHOST. I'll tell something back.

I'm new here and I just begun using process tamer.
It seems that PT doesn't adjust priority of SVCHOST. In my PC it usually hogs resources for 1-2 minutes when Microsoft Updates launch. How to change this?
