Process Hacker Review

Fernando Ortega
A very advanced process manager with tons of features
A review of Process Hacker by Fernando Ortega

Process Hacker isn't exactly the same as Windows Task Manager as it provides a few different options. It allows you to view and manipulate Windows services and processes running on the system.

It provides a variety of different options such as searching through running processes, viewing a variety of different options (such as performance, statistics, memory, modules, threads and more.)

It certainly is a more feature-packed alternative to Windows Process Manger and provides more information. You may view processes as a tree and change run-time variables by right-clicking on the process and view detailed information about the process by right-clicking and selection Properties.

Process Hacker isn't exactly a replacement for Process Manager but does provide some additional advanced options which may not necessarily be geared towards the novice user.

Process Hacker isn't too advanced but it definitely isn't basic and thus a little know-how is required.

Process Hacker features and highlights:
  • A detailed overview of system activity with highlighting.
  • Graphs and statistics allow you quickly to track down resource hogs and runaway processes
  • Discover which processes are using a file
  • See what programs have active network connections, and close them if necessary
  • Get real-time information on disk access
  • View detailed stack traces with kernel-mode, WOW64 and .NET support
  • Allows you to copy data by simply pressing Ctrl C
