Process Explorer shows you information about which handles and DLLs processes have opened or loaded. The display consists of two sub-windows. The top always shows a list of the currently active processes, including the names of their owning accounts, whereas the information displayed in the bottom window depends on the mode that it is in. The unique capabilities make it useful for tracking down DLL-version problems or handle leaks, and provide insight into the way Windows and applications work.

    I think Process Hacker is better. Nevertheless it is still extremely good.

    Amazing app.
    important fix in this version -
    "This release fixes a bug that could cause a crash when the VirusTotal column is added to the process view, and another that could cause a crash when verifying digital signatures."

    Absolutely efficent and easy program to use.Developed by a trustworthy company such as Sysinternals.Recommend it using it over the standard task manager process explorer.

    Always used to love this program until I discovered System Explorer ( a couple of years ago. The latter does everything PE does, plus a stack more - uses less memory and has a pretty neat fully configurable status window that appears when you hover over its tray icon.

    "This update fixes a bug with copying text from the process properties dialog and adds an option to disable the heatmap display in the process view."
