Process Watch (Pro)
Process Watch is a powerful process viewer and manager. It is a stand-alone tool that allows you to browse and terminate running processes and their associated modules.
Process Watch allows you to view detailed information on all processes that are running on your system to see if there are any known offending processes. By default, Process Watch lists all processes that are connected to visible windows on your desktop. You can then choose to quickly terminate any running process or unload a module, if necessary.
Note! Be careful; some processes and modules are needed by Windows or other software in order to function.
Using Process Watch
When the Process Watch tool is launched, it shows you a snapshot of all the running processes (top window), their associated modules (lower left window), and a list of threads running for current processes (lower right window). This snapshot is constantly refreshed, and your screen is automatically updated.
The Process Watch displays three main lists of information. The upper list is the process window, displaying the processes that are currently running in your system. In order to see a more in-depth picture of where each process originated, the module shows a “graphic tree”; the parent process tops each “graphic tree,” and branches down to show the spawned sub-processes. The lower left list is the module window, showing a list of the modules the selected process has loaded into memory. The lower right list is the thread window, showing a module’s thread, or path of execution.
The top window of the Process Watch module is the process window. The columns of specific information on each process are listed below.
