Pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc on your Windows 7 computer starts Windows Task Manager – one of Windows’ best process analysis tools. It displays the process, threads and services running on your computer. However, sometimes the Windows task manager does not list all services running behind the scenes. You may be concerned about your computer’s performance and whether it has been compromised over time. In this case, you need an application that tells you which service on your computer consumes the most CPU resources.
If you use virtual machines and virtual servers, you must understand the CPU usage of these applications. Process Hacker has a simple user interface that lists all processes in a tree structure – so you can better understand nested processes.
