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:
