Wintasks 4 Professional is essentially a beefed up version of the Windows Task Manager. At first I was a bit confused about what someone would use this program for, but after a bit of use I can better understand it's capabilities.

The installation of this program is extremely basic and does not really require an explanation. Put the CD in and install the program just like you would install any other windows program. This program requires very little system resources (10 MB) and will run on Windows 98/NT/2000/XP.

The program's GUI has a very clean interface. At first the number of things listed may be overwhelming to the average user but after a bit of use it is very easy to navigate through all of the options.


The Main Window:

The main window shows all of the processes currently running under windows. The basic interface allows to you start and stop processes. It also allows you to change their priority.

At the bottom of the main window is a description section. For native windows processes it will tell you what each process does. Wintasks also gives you the option to add notes to other processes for future reference.

The lower section across the top of the main window gives you access to the rest of the sections of Wintasks Pro.



The autostart window allows you to see all the programs that are started with windows. Although you can do the same exact thing in MSConfig it is nice to have it right here at your fingertips. Wintasks allows you to add, remove, and disable items at your leisure with a much easier to use interface that is present in MSConfig.



This section of the program allows you to see all the windows that are in use for a specific process. The thing that makes wintasks very useful in this respect is that it allows you to see both visible and invisible windows. It gives you complete control over which windows are visible and allows you to open and close windows at your leisure.



Just like the above section, the Modules section allows you to see all of the dll's that are in use by a specific process. This is especially useful for someone who is involved with programming or debugging because it not only tells you what is in use but also where the file is located. Another use for this feature is to find rogue programs that you just can't seem to get rid of and nix the associated dll's.
