A logical question you may ask us is this, “Why do I need another process viewer?

The Program Process Viewer makes it:

  • Easier to understand
  • Manage what programs are running

The Problem of TOO Many Processes

Confusing PC Processes

Most process viewers present a long list of running processes and information on each process. However this list can easily become very long. It is not uncommon to have over 100 processes. Many of these processes are Windows background processes. Many programs are made up of several processes. This can make it hard to identify which processes belong to which programs. It makes it difficult to see how many resources a programs is using at any point in time.

Sample Scenario

It is more useful to know that the Widget Viewer program you installed last week is using lots of memory than the memory usage of a single wdgtvw.exe process. Just like in a restaurant it is probably more useful to know the calorie count of your entrée instead of the calorie count of individual ingredients.

How Program Process Viewer Can Help You

The Program Process Viewer helps to make it easier to see what programs are running by grouping related processes together. You can actually:

  • See what installed programs are running
  • View the amount of processes being used by each program as shown in parenthesis next to it.
  • Terminate an entire program and all related processes with a single button click. This can help make sure a program is fully stopped before uninstalling it and possibly reduce an unneeded restart.

Additional Benefits of The Program Process Viewer

Another benefit of this feature is it helps to identify bloatware by excessive resource usage. This can help you to make a decision about how bloated a program is and whether to look for alternatives.

It also groups all processor, memory, and disk usage together.
