ProcessEye is an advanced Task Manager that monitors processes, applications, startup apps and services, drivers, loaded DLLs and the Hosts files, enabling users to terminate active processes, check for viruses using all popular antivirus applications via Virus Scanner, and more.
Speedy setup and user-friendly GUI
Installing the tool is a fast and easy task, thanks to familiar options. The interface resembles Task Manager a little bit, except that it has additional files and offers extra information.
Perform various operations to open processes
Apart from killing a process, it is possible to restart, suspend and delete it, view the properties of the corresponding file and open its location in Windows Explorer, upload it to Virus Scanner to check for known malware, look up files on Google, change the process priority level (ranging from idle to real time), as well as generate a report of all visible information and export it to HTML format.
Tinker with apps, services, autostart entries, drivers, loaded DLLs and Hosts
Most of these options are also available for services, drivers and loaded DLLs. The Hosts file can be edited and saved, but not before creating backups of the original content or copying information to the Clipboard, in order to revert settings to default if any issues occur afterward.
When it comes to applications, users may close, hide, minimize or maximize them. Autorun entries may also be checked with Virus Scanner, removed from Windows startup, and compiled into an HTML report.
It is possible to send a shutdown, restart or logoff signal to the computer from the "File" menu, make the frame stay on top of other windows, as well as ask ProcessEye to beep on changes.
Evaluation and conclusion
The tool has minimal impact on PC performance, since it runs on low CPU and RAM. There were no kind of issues in our testing, since it did not freeze, crash or pop up error dialogs.
In conclusion, ProcessEye brings to the table several handy options when it come to manipulating active processes, services and other parts of Windows, and it's not that difficult to work with.
