Windows Task Manager Replacement Boasts Enormous Feature Set

Nov 12, 2008 – AnVir Software announces AnVir Task Manager Pro 5.4, a complete app that lets you control everything that’s going on while using your computer. AnVir Task Manager manages startup programs and active processes and removes spyware while offering a great variety of Windows enhancements. No need to install dozens of system utilities. You need only one program instead: AnVir Task Manager.

Highly detailed replacement for Windows Task Manager: This Task Manager replacement analyzes everything that’s currently active on your system and displays it on a tabbed interface. It displays programs that are scheduled to run upon Windows start, as well as all active processes and services. It shows full information about each process including command line, its DLLs in use, inbound and outbound traffic, disk load, tray icon, performance graph, and internet connections.

 
 

AnVir Task Manager monitors the system’s workload, dropping icons in the system tray that indicate CPU usage (including a breakdown by application), hard drive temperature, free space, disk activity (again with per-application info), laptop battery, memory, and network inbound and outbound traffic. So you always know exactly what loads on your PC.

Get rid of malicious software: Right out of the box, AnVir Task Manager automatically provides a security risk rating for each active process, service and startup program. The security risk rating indicates the likelihood of a program being potential spyware, malware or Trojan. The rating is based on behavior, code analysis, and integrated database with information about 70 000+ startup programs, Internet Explorer toolbars and services.

BackBlaze

When any program tries to add itself to startup, AnVir Task Manager shows notification and enables you to cancel each new startup program you consider useless or harmful.

Right click on any suspicious process or file and check it on virustotal.com with 30 antiviruses.

Enhance Windows, modify hundreds of Windows settings

AnVir Task Manager makes using XP or Vista much handier. With it you can minimize selected application windows to system tray to save taskbar space. You can make windows semi-transparent, or pin them ‘always on top’ – just right click on the title of any running application. Also you get the list of recently used folders in “Open”/”Save” dialogs. On Windows XP it shows drive’s free space with a colored horizontal bar in Windows ’My Computer’.

AnVir Task Manager offers a very useful Tweaker that gives you direct access to many Windows settings, enabling you to make your operating system behave the way you want. Tweaker also includes many settings that cannot be accessed in Windows at all without directly editing the registry.

Pricing and Availability: AnVir Task Manager runs on Windows XP/Vista/2003/2008 and is available in Pro version for $39.95, standard version for $24.95 and a free version which still has a lot of functions. 20-days evaluation trial is available for free from www.anvir.com.
