Security Process Explorer, from the developer’s of the powerful, free system tool Glary Utilities, operates as an security tool, and provides advanced risk information on processes, running on your computer.
The program displays specific task manager information, (this application is not a replacement for Windows task manager), including file name, directory path, description, CPU usage, and so on. What sets the application apart, is the unique security risk rating that is applied to running processes.
The major caveat here however is, the user must make the decision whether a particular process, or program, should be terminated, or removed. Thankfully, you can get help in making that decision by clicking on the More Info Tab. Doing so, opens GlarySoft’s web based database where additional information about the specific program/process can be obtained, along with a risk factor for that inquiry, as the following graphic illustrates.
Note: As an added bonus you can even Google the process from within the application.
Using Security Process Explorer you can easily find and remove unnecessary background processes. As well, you can assign more resources to demanding processes like games, real-time multimedia applications and CD writing software, where necessary.

Isn’t that a bit old fashioned ?…
I suppose that depends on how one defines “old fashioned”. Is a 3 year old application which is designed for one express purpose, and which has not been surpassed in that specific task, old fashioned? I don’t think so.
The core functionality of even the most recently updated applications rarely changes. For example, MS Word, despite surface changes, is still at the heart of it – a word processor.
