    I have seen users look at their task manager programs and it'll show something like "3% cpu time" or whatever.

    Which program is this?

    Is it process explorer?

    Trying it now.

    Not sure what some of the things mean. What is "CPU Time" for example?

    I'd like to see how much CPU Comodo uses overall in percentage as well as disk I/O and RAM.

    Same here, and that includes CPU time, although it's a parameter that some people in these forums seem to place more importance in than, say, CPU usage.

    PE has some nice features, though, such as path of the process by hovering the mouse pointer over it, or Googling a process online by right-click->online.

    Process Lasso has a column to show the CPU'average used for each app. (CPU avg). CPU time used by each program also.

    CPU time is simply put the time program uses the CPU. Programs use CPU in turns. The more the program needs CPU, the more turns it needs. More turns equals more CPU time.

    A program that uses more CPU time for same tasks than the other, is generally unefficient.
