    Reviewing 1.30 (Jan 16, 2009)

    This program does exactly as advertised, so it gets a 5.

    Howvever, I'm not sure of what use this will be to the average user. When I openned the program, it showed me the 447 files that were open. Oh, I recognized many, but there were so many more I did not.

    When I downloaded this program, I thought it might be useful in determining whether or not some "malware" program was running, though I did not believe one actually was. But, I realized that I would probably get so many results and that I would not be able to tell which of the files should be running, which of the files must be running, and which of the files were running, but should not be. Unfortunately, I was correct and I find that this program, as interesting as it is, will not be valuable to me.

    It is a 5. It is (to me) of no worth.
