Features and Primary Functions

Process Monitor provides the user with an extensive analysis of all functions as they occur. Examples here will include thread activity, memory status, the condition of all registries and the boot time of ongoing operations. Another massive benefit associated with the package is that it is extremely easy to interpret. In many ways, Process Monitor is set up in the same manner as a typical task manager. It will automatically run in the background although the user can also choose to only activate this system when necessary. A total file size of only 974 megabytes offers a very small memory footprint.

Other Applications

While this is not necessarily a tool to delete spyware or malware, it can be used to detect any abnormal processes which may signal a problem. The latest version (3.32) was released in February 2017, so this architecture is extremely up to date.
