    I'm with rev on this one. Why install an application to do something that's already quick and easy to do?

    Installed and not working

    I installed it on a 64bit Windows 7 Pro installation and it doesn't work at all.

    Uninstalled immediately!
  6. I'm a PC/IT guy & let me tell you from personal experience, which spans about 9 years: do NOT bog down your system/registry with "in the moment" programs that either duplicate/mimic or marginally enhance the features already built into Windows.

    How much time are you saving, exactly, by tacking on even more options to the right click function? There's absolutely NO need for this software when you can do it all with Task Manager. Like I always tell my customers: TM is your best friend. Use it, abuse it.

    When I read this I was hopeful that this was actually useful, how about something that lets you put software on different cores and priorities but saves it for whenever you open it and not only while it is running?

    Reinventing the wheel is a fools quest...

    It only works on 32bit programs…
     
  12. I recommend using Procexp.exe from sysinternals. You can run when needed or replace task manager with it (Options - Replace Task Manager). Has been and still continues to be the best application for processes, IMHO.
