Advanced Task Manager is a useful program that shows you exactly what is running on your computer, including hidden processes. It gives you lots of information and calculates a security risk rating for each process. Advanced Task Manager also tells you whether a program connects to the Internet, watches what you type, is an Internet server, is hidden, is encrypted on disk, has invisible windows, etc.
The security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process of being a virus, spyware, malware, trojan, etc. If you discover a process you don’t want to run on your computer you can quarantine it so it doesn’t start anymore. The included Startup Manager helps you control the Windows startup programs. Several other tools offer you detailed information about important Windows internals such as DLL files, Internet connections, CPU and memory use, etc. Advanced Task Manager offers you far more information that the classic Windows Task Manager by providing additional security related data and allowing you to quarantine suspect processes. It was designed to improve the original Windows software; it will run as a separate program, without interfering with the original one.
