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.

    Process Explorer 16.1 changelog:

    "Process Explorer now includes a column in the handle view that reports the text version of handle access masks, as well as several bug fixes including one that would result in the suspension of .NET threads when viewed via the stack dialog."

    Great program but why don't the idiots at Microsoft provide a changelog?

    It's now been corrected. The download version is now 16.03, Autoruns has also been updated to v12.01.

    Both worthy of 5 stars imo.

    Reviewing 16.03 (Aug 8, 2014)

    @FastBastadr : same here. In fact the developer's mistake, downloading from Sysinternals (I mean Microsoft) leads to the same 16.02 when 16.03 is displayed.

    Otherwise, the Sysinternal's quality. Best Process Explorer I know.

    I love Process Explorer but when I download I get 16.02 instead of 16.03...
