Process viewing program for Windows
- At yesterday's Computer SIG meeting I mentioned a program that
would list all the programs running or residing in your computer's
RAM memory. Unfortunately I gave the wrong name for the
program. I should have given "PrcView". It is available (free) at:
If you highlight the name of a program, and select
"Process -> Startup Info" from the menu, it will give you the path of
the command that started the program. It does not allow you to
prevent the start up like MSConfig, but tells you were to look with
Windows Explorer (or whatever program manager that you are
using) to edit or delete that command. There is lots of other kinds
of information available, if you really want to dig into Windows.
Another similar, but simpler program, is "WinProcess", available
It is also free, but nags you to register to get a registration number,
but you can just click OK twice and it will run fine.
Have full finding what is using up all your memory!
