ProcessScanner

  • Generic Company Place Holder ProcessScanner

ProcessScanner works in concert with the well-known ProcessLibrary.com site--a free, online database that lists services, processes, and programs, and gives information about each. Run ProcessScanner, and after a short while, it displays its results in an HTML page. Double-click any service, process, or program, and you're sent to the ProcessLibrary.com listing about it. You'll find a description of it, advice on whether it might be dangerous, all in a great amount of detail.

Given that this program is free, it's a must-have for anyone looking to improve system performance, or who wants to regularly check to see whether malware has made it onto their system.
