[Contest] AnVir Task Manager Pro

| January 9, 2012

AnVir Task Manager is an award-winning solution that controls everything running on computer, removes Trojans, speeds up computer, and tweaks Windows

  • Monitor processes, services, startup programs; replace Task Manager
  • Get rid of spyware and viruses that your antivirus missed
  • Enhance and tune up XP, Vista or Windows 7
  • Speed up your PC and Windows startup

Description and Features:
Installation is pretty easy. Just be sure to uncheck the installation of Registry Cleaner Pro. Upon installation it adds entries to system startup.
Different Sections:
A. Startup Tab.

Here it displays all the executable that would launch during system startup. It shows name, process and associated security risk. Moreover the Startup items are categorized into Regular Startups and Internet Explorer. Regular Startups are further categorized into Registry, Files and Services. In this way even a beginner-user would be able to identify where does the startup item fits in.

Tip: You could either disable or delete startup programs that you don’t need, and your PC will run much faster. But be careful before you do so!!

B. Applications Tab.

Here it shows all the active applications-associated processes and Status. Interesting thing is that it also has a column to show any application which is hidden to tray.

C. Processes Tab.

This is what I call the heart of this application. It lists all the processes on the system, including the details such as-Process, Product, Risk, Startup location, CPU usage, Disk load, Company and Executable file location. Better part is that you could select to show even more information.

D. Services Tab.

Here it lists all the services for your windows OS as a whole. It also provides the details such as Name, Company, Security risk, State and Description. Note that you could change the state of any service, with a single mouse click.

E. Log Tab.

This is a very important part of this software. It keeps a log of all the activities on the system. No, it doesn’t logs your keystrokes, etc..lol. It logs the following system events:

  •     Processes created
  •     Processes terminated
  •     Windows created

You could save the log as Html. From the logs we could see and identify trouble makers, if any; and take quick action.
