Process Master is a task manager type utility designed for
viewing and killing processes. Process master is a fairly straight forward
program which could serve as a good replacement for the windows task manager.
Process master not only displays the tasks from windows but also any hidden
processes such as those caused by Trojans or root kits.
The application itself is very simple to use and includes options for how often
to update(i.e.: refresh) the process list. When you see a program running that
shouldn't be there or one you just want to end a click of the mouse is all
that's needed to rid your system of the running task.

I will say however that the full version works well and does exactly what it was
intended to do. The program includes a help file and the web site has a tech.
Support section if you should ever need it. I also got a response from their
support people when I e-mailed them so if you run in to trouble help is
In short, if your looking for a compact easy to use task manager program to
replace the one that comes with windows Process Master might be the answer your
looking for as long as you're willing to pay a fair price for it.
