System Explorer is a free tool for the Windows operating system that can provide you with a lot of useful valuable information about your PC. The program is available as a portable version that you do not need to install to run, and a setup version.
The program will automatically perform a security check of all running processes on the computer. This takes less than a minute to complete and makes sure that you have no processes running that are malicious in nature.
The program starts up in the Task Manager that displays all of the processes with their cpu and memory utilization.
You can select a process with a left-click to see information at the bottom. Here you see the file name and path, the product and company name, the description, and a link to security information. Here you also find the option to end the task or create a new task.
A summary is displayed in the status bar that displays the total process count, cpu, ram and swap file utilization.
When you switch to processes, you see the full list of all processes in tree view. You can verify any process online with a click on details or check, or by right-clicking and selecting one of the options under File Info Search and File Check. This allows you to understand why a process is running on the system, and if it is dangerous or even malicious in nature. The context menu offers other options, like changing a processes’ affinity or priority, or opening the file in Windows Explorer.
You can use the search at the top to find a particular program running on your system, or the file filters to hide or display process groups. You can for instance hide Microsoft processes and services for a better overview of third party processes running on the system.
The performance tab displays detailed information about performance related values. This includes the top process on the system, ram and swap file utilization, and a lot of additional processor, memory and hard drive related information.
That’s not all yet, as you can open a history of processes in the history tab, or use the menu at the top to open Windows administrative tools. System Explorer all in all is a very useful tool for Windows users. It can be downloaded from the developer website.
