    Absolutely a must have tool, best of it's kind.

    Is this something mentally wrong with you? There is absolutely no spyware in this software. This is one of the best Task Manager replacements next to Process Hacker.

    There are a few tools that provide info on services and processes and other stuff but nothing like System Explorer .... Autoruns, Task, Performance you name it and it's there for you to analyze what's going on with your Windows OS. System Explorer has it all and quite easy to understand if you are a little savvy....

    System Explorer 3.9.5
    the version number for the portable is showing as System Explorer Portable 2.9.5 but when I visit the home page I find that both the installer and portable versions should have the same #.

    I love this tool, and have been using this for a long time. A couple of things:

    When I select a process from the process list, the list scrolls to bring my selection to the center (or as close to the center as it can). There may be users who find that feature nice - so, maybe you guys can add an option to turn scrolling on/off?

    Also, is there an option to hide or turn off the left pane? Or maybe switch between having a pane or showing them as tabs (as in the older version). I don't want part of my window being taken up by a pane that I don't need after I have made my selection. In the pane itself, there are expand/collapse buttons, but it doesn't allow me to collapse a section.

    Under some of the sections like Modules, Services, Drivers etc, clicking on View --> Select Columns... throws an error saying "Active control does not support this function!", whereas I can still right click on the list and select/unselect columns that I want. The first two were more of "feature requests" while this third one is probably a bug in the code somewhere.

    Love this tool - wish there were an option to make the graphics go the 'opposite direction'...with older data scrolling off to the left.
