It would be nice if you added the ability to have it replace the default task manager and implemented double buffering to the UI so it won't flicker anymore.

How am I supposed to download that? Clicking the link only throws me up on the page.

Try the link in the above post again.

Alternatively, the URL remains valid. You can copy and paste it into your browser manually.

Is this still getting worked on, because the last update & any movement on this app was in May of 2015?

Hi this looks perfect - I downloaded from the links page.However when I unzipped and ran it I got the Whoops message. 

 

I note a number of times that this has happened in the past - is there a fix or a later version that fixes this.

 

Is there a fix for this dll required or do I need to copy it to a windows system dir in order for it to work?

 

I've tried a few dirs with no improvement.

 

Is it possible to obtain a prior version?

 

Many thanks for all your great work

Hi there, it would be great replacement for WIn 7 if act same way as WIn 7 original task manager does, find one think, but maybe I missed something. 

When you go to process in original WIn 7 task manager you can choose for svchost service in properties and that jumps in HIGHLIGHTED lines in Service screen what service is using that 

In your does almost same, when you are in details and when jumps to services screen I just see screen without any highlights so basically useless when comes to read svchost service activity. 

Maybe that does just for me - Win 7 Ultimate, 86x

      Microsoft Weekly: Overcharged batteries, Patch Tuesday, and Surface Laptop SE
      by Usama Jawad

      We are at the close of another week and while there was no Ignite conference in this one, it was still a pretty packed week due to multiple Windows updates, new Microsoft hardware, and some collaborations. Find out more about the aforementioned topics as well as lots of others in our weekly digest for November 7 - November 12.

      Patch Tuesday and updates galore


      Microsoft releases cumulative updates for its operating systems on the second Tuesday of each month, and this time was no different. Windows 7 is still supported until the start of 2023 for those who are subscribed to Extended Security Updates (ESU) and users of the OS got some fixes for printer issues and zero width Pen not behaving correctly. Windows 8.1 had similar fixes for printer issues but the patch notes for both the operating systems still note some more printer problems and their respective workarounds. Be sure to check out their details here.

      The Windows 10 Patch Tuesday notes were quite similar too. Microsoft highlighted some security updates and a fix for a zero width Pen, but pointed out a bunch of other known issues related to Edge installation, printer, and updates not installing correctly. The company noted that due to the "minimal operations during the holidays and the upcoming Western new year", there won't be any C release in the month of December. However, the B release or Patch Tuesday security updates will be released as per the normal schedule. Find out more about this here.

      Interestingly, the Windows 11 Patch Tuesday fixed a few problems but apparently has no known issues. That's not all when it comes to the OS though. Dev Channel Insiders were treated to build 22449 which notably adds the ability to quickly share open app windows on the taskbar directly with Microsoft Teams calls. That said, this capability will be rolled out in a staggered manner. There are tons of other bug fixes and known issues that you can check out here too. Yesterday, Microsoft also released build 22449.1010 to the Dev Channel, but it brought no changes as it is just a servicing update.

      The Beta Channel was not forgotten either. Insiders on that ring received build 22000.346 which fixes lots of issues related to printer connectivity and File Explorer. The patch notes are quite lengthy so be sure to check them out here if you're on the Beta Channel for Windows 11.

      Finally, the new Microsoft Store has started rolling out to non-Insiders of Windows 10 too. However, since it is being made available in a staggered manner, not everyone will receive it at the same time.

      Welcome Windows 11 SE and Surface Laptop SE
      After being leaked a few weeks ago, Microsoft took to the stage to unveil the Surface Laptop SE powered by Windows 11 SE. The device is targeted at K-8 students and sports an affordable price tag of $249, thanks to 11.6-inch 1366x768 display, plastic body, an Intel Celeron processor, and up to 8GB of RAM coupled with up to 128GB of storage.

      Talking more about Windows 11 SE, no one really knows what the "SE" in the new SKU officially stands for. Given that people have a lot of questions surrounding the OS and how it differs from the standard Windows 11 offering, we dove into its documentation and prepared a somewhat brief summary discussing the salient points about Windows 11 SE for our readers.

      Essentially, Windows 11 SE is aimed only at K-8 students and while Microsoft isn't restricted OEMs from selling it elsewhere, it doesn't think that this will become a trend given the OS' restriction and management requirements via Intune for Education. It is a cloud-first OS but it might still be faster than traditional Windows in some productivity scenario given its optimizations for low-powered devices. Find out more about this and lots of related topics in our deep-dive here.

      Partnerships and integrations and blockers, oh my!
      This week, Meta (formerly Facebook) announced that it has partnered with Microsoft to integrate its Workplace enterprise communication platform with Teams. While both tools are essentially rivals, the two companies believe that integrating them will offer a seamless solution for customers who use Workplace and Teams both. This is a multifaceted approach with content sync between the two platforms available right now and the ability to stream meetings from Teams to Workplace groups becoming available in early 2022.

      Mozilla managed to mend some bridges with Microsoft as well and now offers its Firefox browser through the Microsoft Store on Windows 10 and Windows 11. This release is built on Firefox' own Gecko engine and is not tied to the OS' engine. As such, it packs all the features available in the regular Firefox release.

      The Redmond tech giant and IT infrastructure services provider Kyndryl have teamed up for a strategic global partnership through which solutions build on Microsoft Cloud will be offered to customers. The aim will be to modernize applications and enhance hybrid cloud adoption processes.

      Microsoft is not being friendly with everyone though. Its latest Dev Channel build essentially renders EdgeDeflector useless which means that it has become impossible for third-parties to change the default browser in Edge to something else again. Similarly, the company also removed APK sideloading app WSATools for Windows 11 without any explanations. However, the developer has recently stated that Microsoft has reached out with more information about how to get the app approved again. All's well that ends well, we suppose.

      Dev Channel


      Visual Studio 2022 and .NET 6 are now generally available You can now pop up chats in new windows on Teams There are less than six months to go before .NET 5 reaches end of support Microsoft may be integrating Office more deeply with its Edge browser Microsoft revealed some more details about its Privacy Preserving Machine Learning (PPML) initiative Forza Horizon 5 is the biggest Xbox Game Studios launch to date with over five million players Xbox Design Lab now offers more customization options for controllers Your Ryzen-based Windows 11 PCs could be snappier with new StoreMI 2.1.0.205

      Under the spotlight
      In this week's combo of Closer Look articles, I discussed the UI and usability revamps to both the Settings app and the dedicated Windows Update section. Microsoft is clearly on the right track even if it's Settings app is not perfect yet.

      Meanwhile, our very own Asher Madan and Pulasthi Ariyasinghe reviewed both the campaign and multiplayer components of Call of Duty: Vanguard. Although it's more of the same (which includes benefits and flaws both), that does not mean that it doesn't have its moments of fun. Check out Asher's review of the campaign here and Pulasthi's review of the multiplayer component here.

      Finally, Asher also took a look at Battlefield 2042 on Xbox Series X, talking about how the title has massive potential but needs further polish before it becomes a truly stellar experience. The game is currently in early access but will officially launch on November 19. Check out Asher's impressions of Battlefield 2042 here.

      Logging off
      For this week's most interesting news item, we talk about how a visual glitch in multiple Windows 11 preview builds results in the battery percentage being shown as over 100%. This is, of course, physically impossible so don't go singing the praises about how Windows 11 has increased your device's battery life just yet. Microsoft is investigating the issue so expect a fix soon.

      Microsoft pushes Patch Tuesday updates out for Windows 8.1 and Windows 7
      by Paul Hill



      Microsoft has begun pushing Patch Tuesday updates out to supported Windows 8.1 (KB5007255) and Windows 7 (KB5007236) computers today. Windows 8.1 is currently in extended support until the start of 2023 while Windows 7 users who are subscribed to Extended Security Updates will still receive updates for a couple of years.

      Windows 8.1
      In terms of improvements and fixes introduced for Windows 8.1, Microsoft has fixed an issue that might prevent devices from downloading and installing printer drivers when devices attempt to connect to a network printer for the first time. It said the issue was noted when devices access printers using print servers that use HTTP connections.

      The other main fix that Microsoft outlines is that it has fixed an issue that prevents an Internet print server from properly packaging modified printer properties before sending the package to the client.

      The firm outlined two known issues that still exist in this update, they are as follows:

      Symptom Workaround Certain operations, such as rename, that you perform on files or folders that are on a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) may fail with the error, “STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)”. This occurs when you perform the operation on a CSV owner node from a process that doesn’t have administrator privilege.

      Do one of the following:

      Perform the operation from a process that has administrator privilege. Perform the operation from a node that doesn’t have CSV ownership. Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

      After installing this update, Windows print clients might encounter the following errors when connecting to a remote printer shared on a Windows print server:

      0x000006e4 (RPC_S_CANNOT_SUPPORT) 0x0000007c (ERROR_INVALID_LEVEL) 0x00000709 (ERROR_INVALID_PRINTER_NAME) Note The printer connection issues described in this issue are specific to print servers and are not commonly observed in devices designed for home use. Printing environments affected by this issue are more commonly found in enterprises and organizations.

      For workarounds and the latest status for this issue, please see Windows release health.

      We are presently investigating and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

      Windows 7
      The update that has gone out for Windows 7 also includes improvements that went out with KB5006743 on October 12. Today’s update specifically addresses the printer issues mentioned above in the Windows 8.1 notes. As part of this update, Microsoft has also fixed an issue where a zero width Pen will render one pixel regardless of the transformation.

      There are three known issues in this update that Microsoft is aware of, here they are with their respective workarounds:

      Symptom Workaround After installing this update and restarting your device, you might receive the error, "Failure to configure Windows updates. Reverting Changes. Do not turn off your computer", and the update might show as Failed in Update History.

      This is expected in the following circumstances:

      If you are installing this update on a device that is running an edition that is not supported for ESU. For a complete list of which editions are supported, see KB4497181. If you do not have an ESU MAK add-on key installed and activated. If you have purchased an ESU key and have encountered this issue, please verify you have applied all prerequisites and that your key is activated. For information on activation, please see this blog post. For information on the prerequisites, see the How to get this update section of this article.

      Certain operations, such as rename, that you perform on files or folders that are on a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) may fail with the error, "STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)". This occurs when you perform the operation on a CSV owner node from a process that doesn’t have administrator privilege. Do one of the following:

      Perform the operation from a process that has administrator privilege. Perform the operation from a node that doesn’t have CSV ownership. Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

      After installing this update, Windows print clients might encounter the following errors when connecting to a remote printer shared on a Windows print server:

      0x000006e4 (RPC_S_CANNOT_SUPPORT) 0x0000007c (ERROR_INVALID_LEVEL) 0x00000709 (ERROR_INVALID_PRINTER_NAME) Note The printer connection issues described in this issue are specific to print servers and are not commonly observed in devices designed for home use. Printing environments affected by this issue are more commonly found in enterprises and organizations.

      For workarounds and the latest status for this issue, please see Windows release health.

      We are presently investigating and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

      If you have purchased an Extended Security Updates subscription, Microsoft says you need to follow the procedures in KB4522133 to continue receiving security updates.

      As always, ensure you are keeping your computers up-to-date to ensure they stay protected when going online and to ensure they continue to operate properly. If your computer no longer gets updates, you should make sure you update to a newer version of Windows or in the case of those with unsupported hardware, alternatives like Ubuntu are recommended over running an insecure system.

      Microsoft is killing off the OneDrive desktop app on Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 next year
      by Usama Jawad



      Back in August, Microsoft announced that it is ending support for OneDrive sync on older versions of Mac, and now the company is planning to do the same for Windows. It has revealed that from January 1, 2022, no updates will be offered to the OneDrive desktop app running on Windows 7, 8, and 8.1. And then from March 1, 2022, your personal files will no longer sync with the OneDrive service which means that you'll have to rely on manually uploading and downloading your content from OneDrive on web and keeping it in sync if you choose to stay on the aforementioned operating systems.

      Microsoft has obviously recommended that users who want to continue taking advantage of the OneDrive sync app on desktop should upgrade to Windows 10 or 11. Meanwhile, people who can't upgrade due to reasons such a system requirements should resort to manually keeping their files in sync using the OneDrive web interface.

      This announcement affects consumers for now as starting from next year, business users of OneDrive's desktop app will have their support period aligned with the lifecycle of the Windows version they are using.

      Overall, the move is not surprising but it's interesting to note that while Windows 8 did run out of support in 2016, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 are on extended support until January 10, 2023, which means that Microsoft is essentially ending support for its software while the associated OS is still live, in a way. It is possible that the number of OneDrive desktop users on the aforementioned operating systems is not large enough to warrant further investment from Microsoft.

      Patch Tuesday: Here's what's new for Windows 8.1 and 7
      by Abhay V



      Today is the second Tuesday of the month, which means it's Patch Tuesday, the day that Microsoft released cumulative updates for all supported Windows versions. This month, the debutant is Windows 11, which is receiving its first-ever official Patch Tuesday update. Other supported versions include Windows 10, Windows 8.1, and select Windows 7 users who have opted to pay for Extended Security Updates.

      As is always the case, Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 updates are classified into monthly rollup and security-only updates. While the former can be installed via Windows Update, the latter can only be manually downloaded and installed. Usually, these versions are only served one update per month, unlike Windows 10 which receives a mid-month preview update.

      To begin with, Windows 8.1 users are receiving KB5006714, which is the monthly rollup. The update can also be downloaded from the Update Catalog here. Here is the complete changelog for the update:

      The update also brings with it a long-standing known issue, which seems to have been on the list for months. You can head to our previous coverage to check out the known issue. The security-only update for this version is KB5006729 and can be only be installed manually by downloading the package from here.

      The changelog notes that the patch includes "miscellaneous security improvements to internal OS functionality", which is the only listed fix. The known issue is identical to that of the monthly rollup.

      Moving on to Windows 7, the monthly rollup is termed KB5006743, which can be downloaded manually from here. The list of fixes is almost identical to that of the Windows 8.1 update, save for the first line item that relates to the DCOM activation failures. As for known issues, the release shares the rename issue with Windows 8,1, along with another problem that listed below:

      Symptom

      Workaround

      After installing this update and restarting your device, you might receive the error, "Failure to configure Windows updates. Reverting Changes. Do not turn off your computer", and the update might show as Failed in Update History.

      This is expected in the following circumstances:

      If you are installing this update on a device that is running an edition that is not supported for ESU. For a complete list of which editions are supported, see KB4497181.

      If you do not have an ESU MAK add-on key installed and activated.

      If you have purchased an ESU key and have encountered this issue, please verify you have applied all prerequisites and that your key is activated. For information on activation, please see this blog post. For information on the prerequisites, see the How to get this update section of this article.

      The security-only update for Windows 7 and the corresponding Windows Server release is KB5006728, which can be found for manual download here. The update shares the known issues with the monthly rollup and contains fixes that are identical to that of the security-only update for WIndows 8.1.

      As mentioned earlier, Windows 7 updates will only head to those that have paid for extended updates. Windows 8.1 updates, however, are available for all supported SKUs.
