Better Task control on Windows (NT/XP/Vista)

I have been using ProcessExplorer since long before Microsoft bought out SysInternals, since long long before that too, and I have found it incredibly useful.

e.g.: checking to see if my new application has a memory leak etc..

Now I have just discovered it has an even better toy-set built into it.

If you have never tried it, download and install ProcessExplorer.
The run it.

You will get a view like task manager, but with much better granularity in the processes.

Next comes the standard view:

select View > System Information

Now, for the "Piece de Resistance"...

Goto Options > Replace Task Manager.


Windows Task Manager has been replaced by the more powerful ProcessExplorer.
