Process Explorer 11.0

Ever wondered which program has a particular file or directory open? Now you can find out. Process Explorer shows you information about which handles and DLLs processes have opened or loaded. The Process Explorer display consists of two sub-windows. The top window always shows a list of the currently active processes, including the names of their owning accounts, whereas the information displayed in the bottom window depends on the mode that Process Explorer is in: if it is in handle mode you'll see the handles that the process selected in the top window has opened; if Process Explorer is in DLL mode you'll see the DLLs and memory-mapped files that the process has loaded. Process Explorer also has a powerful search capability that will quickly show you which processes have particular handles opened or DLLs loaded. The unique capabilities of Process Explorer make it useful for tracking down DLL-version problems or handle leaks, and provide insight into the way Windows and applications work. Process Explorer works on Windows 9x/Me, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Server 2003, and 64-bit versions of Windows for x64 and IA64 processors, and Windows Vista.

Nice. I can't wait to try out the new version. I can't believe v10 was backlisted by Bioshock. I wonder why MS hasn't replaced task manager with process explorer. It's been more than 6 months since they acquired mark and his tools.

I like this program very much !
the windows taskmanager is so weak!
also I dont like the longhorn version!

"better UI responsiveness", that's what I noticed yet. :)
Updating!


edit:
Task Manager replacement works well on XP, too.

I love this program. This is what Task Manager should have been all along. Lost of useful and customizable information about what's running on your computer. Even things Task Manager won't list.

I seriously hope not

//edit
just ran procxp then Bioshock, no problem!

Glad they fixed that.

Maybe MS should talk to Sony about blacklisting MS products?
