like Winpatrol's folders?
What do you use and why?
autoruns and PE. First one to control what is on startup and 2nd to troubleshoot and satisfy curiosity
I use Process Hacker. Its a more beefed up Process Explorer.
Sounds kinda raw.
i use the task manager
Not sure what you mean by that.
OP have a read here:
what about process monitor from System Safety Monitor?
System Explorer pulls together a great many features while using very little CPU itself. It's my favorite "on demand" process manager. Not a replacement for Winpatrol though, which I like to auto-start.
I guess that's a word I got wrong in english. What I mean is that it sounds kinda... "dangerous".
Thats what I figured. Its a legit application and its clean.
I agree. System Explorer is very good.
. Snapshot feature is great.
. a nice Tray Hint info.
. Services tab excellent.
. allows quick acess to many system tools (defrg.msc, commgmt.msc, gpedit.msc, secpol.msc, etc.).
. useful history feature.
Like it uses little CPU I use it in sys tray always. To delay startup I use Startup Delayer.
I guess Malware Defender is similar, too.
yes it does
This thread is comparing applications that are of totally different classes...
1- Classic HIPS - Malware Defender & System Safety Monitor
2- Startup managers - WinPatrol is a startup manager with a few minor HIPS functions thrown in. Autoruns is purely a startup manager.
3- Enhanced replacements for Windows Task Manager System Explorer & Process Explorer & Process Hacker & Whats Running
I think EscapeVelocity was referring to the Processes tab in MD. I have come to rely on this a bit more than PH or PE after installing MD as well.
Yeah, that is what I was talking about.
for common work i have process explorer.
i tried system explorer, but that behaves too slow when opening
process hacker is nice but i wont use it
(not dotNET on xp here, so i dont use it under win7)
malware defender got it too - and a network status.
i have anvir here too, but rarely used - i dont need that functions
really - nice toy beside MD.
sysinternals autorun is mighty - really mighty - can kick off any system
with wrong mouseclick - take care!
but except MD any of those tools have nothing to do with security - more with control.
thats for me the small difference.
Anvir looks good, but in my experience it's such a cpu hog it kind of defeats the purpose. I don't need a monitoring application that brings my system to it's knees.
