Security Task Manager is a PC program that offers an advanced alternative to the Windows Task Manager, as well as an added suite of security functions. For basic, day-to-day process management, Windows Task Manager does a passable job. However, it only gives you surface-level access to process information. Windows Task Manager does not include the same amount of data and available actions as Security Task Manager. In addition to the usual data- process name, memory and CPU usage statistics, etc. - Security Task Manager offers additional information, such as process file location, company certification, process type, and process behavior. Security Task Manager also offers detailed information on whether or not the process is visible, and its Windows system file status. Security Task Manager is capable of measuring a process's capability of manipulating or controlling other programs and processes on your computer. Although an individual process may be benign, this can offer greater knowledge of the current condition of your system. You can also control the private data that is stored on your computer by using the included Protector software, which removes traces of program usage and Internet activity from your computer. Security Task Manager also features a unique security rating system. Many anti-malware programs rely on either security certificates, or profiles of existing, known viruses. Security Task Manager does allow you to search both the Internet and a known database of existing viruses, but also features a security rating system that relies on analysis of the process's code, as well as its general behavior. Based on this data, Security Task Manager displays a security risk rating, based on which you can take whatever action you deem appropriate. You can also list your current processes in order of security risk rating, in order to determine where a particular process falls on the spectrum. Security Task Manager is compatible with Windows 8,7,Vista,2000,XP.
