Ad-Aware Pro Security protects from extreme malware and cyber threats.

AnVir Task Manager controls everything running on computer, removes Trojans, increases performance and tweaks Windows.

AnVir Task Manager provides convenience by offering all of its features in a single interface. It saves money because users won't have to buy multiple packages to perform a family of related tasks.

Monitor your system and replace Windows Task Manager:

  • Information about processes, startup programs, services, internet connections, drivers
  • Integrated database with Descriptions for 70 000+ startup programs, Internet Explorer toolbars and services
  • Icons in the tray that indicate CPU, disk, network, memory and battery

Get rid of viruses, Trojans and spyware that your antivirus missed:

  • Security risk rating for each active process and startup program
  • Get notification when any program tries to add itself to startup

Enhance and tune up XP or Vista:

  • Tweaker that gives access to hundreds of XP / Vista settings
  • Click on the title of any application to minimize window to system tray
  • List of recently used folders in Open / Save dialogs
  • Drive's free space as a colored horizontal bar in Windows 'My Computer'

Speed up your PC and Windows startup:

  • "Delayed Startup" lets you set up any startup program to run few minutes later after Windows startup
  • Run startup programs minimized to system tray, or as a floating icon
  • Balance CPU usage

System Requirements:

Windows XP, Vista, 7 (x32, x64)

Comments on AnVir Task Manager 6.1.0

The Good
* Has all the features of Windows Task Manager.
* Monitors startup/autorun programs and notify the user if a new startup program has been added.
* Monitors Windows services and notify the user if a non-Microsoft service has been added.
* Monitors Internet Explorer's homepage and inform the user if a program tries to change IE's homepage.
* Monitors Internet Explorer addons, BHQs, toolbars, etc. and inform the user if a new one has been added.
* Aside from monitoring and notifying, has a full startup/autorun program manager including the ability to delay starts.
* "Auto-block" startup programs that continually add themselves to the startup list even though you blocked them the first time.
* Allow you to generate a "HiJack This" log.
* Estimates security risk for each program/process.
* Has an option to check a file with VirusTotal.com
* Has system tray icons to show CPU usage, disk load, RAM usage, and network traffic.
* Has 'tweak' XP/Vista features.
* Has automatic CPU balancing/controlling and automatic memory cleaning features.
* Can hide program windows, minimize to system tray, make floating icon, and change transparency.

The Bad
* Significant discrepancy between the CPU/RAM usage per program reported by AnVir Task Manager and that reported by Windows Task Manager.
* Doesn't use up too many resources, relatively speaking, but interface has some minor lag now and then.
* "Windows Tweaker" does not seem to identify which windows you are running (i.e. still shows "XP tweaks" if you aren't on XP).

I'm running this program on an XP box. It's the swiss army knife of utilities. Recommended. (Though there are some things a novice wouldn't understand.)

I installed easily in Vista Home Basic 64B and it's running smoothly. The software gives you a lot of information in a better way than default Task Manager. It also puts icons in your tray for direct monitoring of main parameters.
As long as I see it, very recommendable to give it a try.
