Reviewing 5.6.0 (May 13, 2014)
Sadly no longer a viable replacement for Task Manager as it requests elevation on launch (instead of just launching w/o prompt as in previous versions). Strangely, this elevation request isn't for admin, so you *still* have to elevate to Admin as necessary. The extra, completely unnecessary, elevation prompt on launch adds a useless, time-wasting step which takes this program too far backwards, imo. Without the ridiculous prompt, this used to be a no-brainer replacement for task manager and an easy 5 stars. Now it's tough to give even 3. I don't understand how the developer(s) thought adding an unnecessary elevation prompt was a good idea...

Craps out on Win 7 x64 - System service Fail! and you have to manually kill the process since it's taking a lot of CPU.
It's working on x32...

MISTAKE - Still points to 3.0.8
Reviewing 3.0.2 (Jul 1, 2011)
- CTRL+TAB for switching tabs
Excellent, little by little the author is starting to use standard Windows keystrokes :-). I hope one day he'll also get rid of the "Main" menu and call it
Please.... I have two decades of Alt+F in my hands and brain, don't
be "creative" in that area.
Reviewing 2.3.8 (Oct 18, 2010)
Excellent program, not perfect.
Text is horrendous. Seems to have a slow refresh frequency, causing the text to appear thin and jumpy with insufficient contrast. Selecting larger font and using Windows ClearType feature doesn't help.
Tray icon is so annoying I turned it off, not very useful to me anyway, you may find it useful.
I love the initial security scan, I wish it could be used every time I start the program. Maybe there's a way to change that option in the INI file!
Gets 4.5/5! Highly recommended!
