All the Microsoft operating systems have a built-in process explorer which is available under Task Manager. In the Windows Task Manager we can check all the running processes and their CPU as well as Memory Usage but this information is not enough to do some advanced work. A majority of Windows users are unaware of the fact that most virus programs start their own process in Windows to cause maximum damage to the local system and affect other healthy systems too. Such malicious programs are not easy to capture and monitor using normal process explorers like the one available in Windows Task Manager. And if you catch them by chance, you will not able to stop or delete their process to delete the virus generating file. Process Hacker is the best solution to explore Windows processes in an advanced way. It provides full control over all the running Windows processes on your Windows system and you can easily start, stop, pause, resume and delete any process even if they are protected by rootkits or any other virus program. Processes that show up in the Task Manager are not in full view but you can quickly check all the running processes in the system with Process Hacker. Its highly advanced tools have lots of useful features; you can open direct source location of any running process, copy process name, direct search running process on Google to get more information about them and other informative options. To access all the available features, you need to right-click on any running process in the Process Hacker window. It also includes powerful features like process termination, memory viewing/editing and other unique and specialized features.
How Process Hacker Helps You To Remove any Virus from Windows?
I never suggest you use any system without a decent antivirus program because installing a good antivirus program on the system ensures smooth running of the system and keeps it safe from hackers and virus programs. But on many occasions, antivirus programs fail to detect certain virus threats and at such times only the process view can help you to detect and delete the virus program from the system. If you have some advanced knowledge of Windows and have a good command on Windows features, then you can easily find out the process which should not be running. Once you locate any suspicious process in the system, you can search about them on Google using the Search Online feature within this utility and find out more information which will help you to ensure whether the suspicious process is virus related or not. If the suspicious file turns out to be a virus, just end the process then open the file location of the suspicious file and delete it.
I found another interesting feature of this application when I was reviewing it for you and that is you can check all the internet bandwidth uses by any application or process. You may have noticed that sometimes your system internet speed becomes slow at once. It is possible that this is due to some hidden process or an update running in the background. You can easily track which process is using your bandwidth and in how much speed with Process Hacker.
