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

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.

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.
