Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

Free is when the developer offer it to you 24/7 for life with limited features. All software use the OS to communicate bewteen the hardware and the user. MS have done some of the job and others make gold on selling things that most do not know about...

You can pay other to make a nice GUI.

You have to be carefull where you buy the software. It could be somebody that we all know, but dont want to talk about.

Downloaded and install only for the promise it can show which processes send what to the Internet. not only it did not worked as promise, the application consume much resources and slowed the computer significantly. for all other features, I recommend a freeware that was not mentioned above "Starter" http://codestuff.tripod.com/ extremely useful, light, easy to use and portable (free, did I mentioned?)

You know, I've commented several times with a competitive or "above" intellect only to have you delete just what I have to say. And this has happened each and every time. Although I have seen where you have "kept" some of those most moronic statements, ever to spew out of some of these people's mouths...thanks...

Okay, not all comments suggest my first sentence to be true, but an unusually large majority appears to be thumb-downed for constructive criticism about the program.

Reply   |   Comment by The PC Tech Guy  –  10 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

Ok, what's going on here, all comments that suggest any type of freeware program, or anything bad against this program is thumbed down... Very interesting, while the program itself is thumb downed by nearly 3/4 of the vote.

I do agree, there are many freeware programs that can do the same thing. The free version of Process Lasso is enough to manage running processes, Cleanmem for RAM usage, and Sysinternals (some program name)(which in fact helped me root out why my "SYSTEM" process hung at 50% after a wakeup and prevent new programs from running). Services and drivers are managed by Serviwin, which is what I use to disable the driver that caused the 50% SYSTEM process lockup. Also, Windows has their own services manager.

I will try this program out. I wonder how it will "free up RAM." Will it do it by overloading the memory, forcing Windows to shift some RAM to the hard drive (a.k.a Virtual Memory) or will it do it the way Cleanmem does (by resetting the working set size... I'm too lazy nor do I need to post here what it says, it's in its Readme.txt file). I wonder what this program does that's "special" and different that makes this program earn its $21.90 (which the dollar sign is supposed to be in front, btw) and superior than other freeware alternatives that I use myself. If I do find anything, I'll post back.

To the person who says it slows down there Core i7 with 6 gigs memory: It runs fine on my Window XP Pentium Pro with 1 gig of memory. If I were you I would return your slow Core i7. It's either defective or you have a virus.

While I make no comment on the functionality, or lack thereof should that be the case, I simply do not understand this type software. What I mean is, Windows has all the tools built into the operating system that you ever need to control your system. Perhaps there are additional features with these type software but, are they truly needed? It is my humble opinion that using a software that uses resources to free up resources is just plain redundant. I say this with all due respect to the creators of this software as my opinion is not directed solely at this product but, rather all products of this nature regardless of who the creator is.

Nice utility. Many of its functions are available in windows or other utilities but with this program they are nicely organized and it has easy to use extra features such as a handy Google search.

After installing SysResources Mgr the program locked up, and I had to run it as an administrator before the it would respond. Overall, the program was extremely sluggish and drug down my system performance. I am running 32 bit Windows 7 on a dual-core Intel. This is one program that I will uninstall.

Downloaded OK.

Installed wherever it wanted. Which is NOT a good thing from a program that is supposed to help you control how your computer operates.

The program itself seems to be doing the job, but the GUI feels a bit 1993.

I'll keep it for now, but I would probably NOT have paid money for this program.

for the rest there are many many free and portable task managers/process monitors...

For today's software, it is quite useful to have this 'gadget' on the desktop for easy access to some functions. The quick defrag is very useful for some quick clean up for someone's that have a 'slow' or need of ram pc (like mine LOL). Is great to know what been connect to the internet too. I like it .

Besides which, inclusion of certain functionality with an operating system does not preclude 3rd parties from offering alternatives (which often improve considerably on the bundled solutions.

SysResources Mgr. is a VB [Visual Basic] app that monitors Windows "Extensible Performance Counter List" [per their FAQ - http://goo.gl/8Lalw ] & provides a few system utility functions, e.g. a Startup Mgr. [follow the link at the top of this GOTD page for full listing on fotissoftware.com]. Since it gets data from the Extensible Performance Counter List [part of Windows], the main benefit [besides the utility functions] is an easier interface, e.g. in win7 go to the Performance tab in Task Mgr. & click the "Resource Monitor..." button & you'll get a window that can be overwhelming to many users.

[Note: the microsoft.com page the Fotis FAQ referrs to (for the Extensible Performance Counter List) is the download page for "Windows 2000 Resource Kit Tool : Extensible Performance Counter List (exctrlst.exe)" -- http://goo.gl/JWtGd . Google/Bing using win7, windows7 etc. + Extensible Performance Counter List for info on Windows versions beyond XP/2k, like this: http://goo.gl/YrciK .]

Being a VB app SysResources Mgr. can be a higher impact install, depending on what if any VB components it adds to Windows -- like .NET [that replaced VB] those supporting files are shared, so in theory at least things like the included msvbvm60.dll are installed only once, & then only if it isn't installed already. I say *in theory* because setup for many VB apps misbehaves, overwriting current version components with older ones, &/or installing VB supporting files in the wrong places. That sort of thing means a newly installed VB app may not work properly due to an earlier VB app install or install & removal. While I've rarely seen a VB app that just wouldn't work in win7, .NET can get involved with VB setups to a varying degree depending on the individual win7 install, versions of .NET etc... e.g. I've seen fairly big differences in the number of registry adds on fairly identical win7 VMs [Virtual Machines] as well as regular installs. That said, SysResources Mgr. adds 168 files, 27 folders taking up ~7 MB under Program Files or Program Files (x86). Universal Extractor will not fully work with the packed setup file, so all I can say for sure is there are 12 files that *may* get installed to Windows system folder -- monitoring install in the XP Mode VM I got 2 of the 12 added [note that setup may include more than 12 files that can be added to the system folder, but those are the only ones I can confirm]. 3 files, 1 folder were added to C:\Windows itself. I recorded 500+ new registry entries in the XP Mode VM, but as mentioned, that figure can vary a Lot -- SysResources Mgr. itself only adds/needs one key for the app & 1 for uninstall.

I'm often a bit harder on VB apps because I feel that any VB app has to meet or exceed higher standards due to the extra baggage it carries -- in that respect SysResources Mgr. seems fine, & I didn't see it misbehaving at all. That said, I'm so used to the tools I use now to do the same things, I can't see myself using it... admittedly there's a bit of "Can't teach an old dog..." there. ;-) RE: alternatives... SysInternals' tools have already been mentioned by others [get them at Microsoft.com], & today neowin.net has an article: "Have you checked out Neowin's Freeware Alternative list yet?" http://goo.gl/Ji97d . If you check it out you might also like "Top ten apps that no PC should be without." http://goo.gl/x8eOl

Please @Cromag obviously I was well aware of why it was flaky being 7 years old, but as I said this is a useful program. It helped me find out the causes; the reason it is so old is that I have no wish to spend weeks re-installing hundreds of components in my preferred programming language. At my age I don’t have time!

Mike - you have just fully illustrated #4 Mr Peeper's comment about why you want portability - he wasn't suggesting that portable is bad just that some people on this site either don't grasp or don't want to abide by the idea that commercial software is offered free in an uncrippled form but with limitations (can't get tech support - can't reinstall - can't get updates for free forever) - in return the provider is asking for constructive feedback so that they can improve their software (and also to tempt some of the testers to actually buy it)

They do not need a list of freeware alternatives, and subjective opinions of whether it's worth the asking price.

Try it - if you want to - comment on it constructively - if you like it keep it or even get the paid for version - if you don't then uninstall it

I've been using SysResources Manager version 11 since it was given away here a while ago with great pleasure so thanks for the free upgrade to version 11.1

SysResources Manager is a utility for watching the system status and it does it with more useful informations than the build-in task manager

The installation couldn't be easier :-)

Surprisingly even after installing and inputting both Name and serial it rejects whatever code and username is written on text file.It summarily rejects saying Sysresource manager not available on GAOTD,exactly GAOTD.It even is a keylogger for sure.But maybe keylogging is needed for these type of softwares like all Clipboard softwares need.But this software developer needs to be condemned for putting keylooger and rejecting legal key and making mockery of Magnificient Giveawayoftheday by having ulterior motives not promotion as all others do.Shocker as they can ridicule GAOTD which I never thought anybody could ever do.Thanks to GAOTD for other great softwares.

A tool called System Monitor is free, and not only watches resource usages, but red lines the bottlenecks. It's not a task manager replacement, but it will tell me what the hold up is (cpu, disk, network), when my machine is running slow.

#4: "... There are sure to be the inevitable complaints from the denizens here (‘I can get all this from freeware’ –not easily — or the ever-popular ‘make it portable’ — we KNOW why you want a portable version (so you can reinstall this offering)– but don’t listen to them..."

Yes, putting various tasks or functions in one place can make running those tasks easier, but often there's also the Jack of all trades, master of none thing going on too. Since the only app of this sort most all Windows users *Absolutely Need* is Windows' built-in Task Mgr., any user's choice is really just a matter of personal preference.

As far as portability goes, while I certainly can't speak for every portable app fan, portable apps have definite advantages -- why else would sites like portableapps.com exist & be so popular? BTW, portableapps.com has a freeware or open source requirement for the apps they host.

Personally I like portable apps because they have no impact on Windows -- you can have hundreds or even thousands & never have to worry about registry bloat or problems, nor installation & the inevitable leftovers after removal... if all apps were portable few would need extremely popular apps like CCleaner & Revo. Another reason I favor portability is that there are many apps I may use one a month, or every 6 months, or maybe just once a year -- to me they're not worth cluttering up the Start Menu let alone the desktop or hard drive. GOTD introduces me to apps I never knew existed, so I often have no idea which of these offers will prove useful in the long run -- if/when they're portable I don't have to decide then and there if something's worth keeping, but can try it as the need or opportunity arises. And portable apps are after all portable -- they don't tie you to the installed PC/laptop, & some of them can be invaluable when you're trying to fix a system, e.g. I can boot to one of several WinPE-type environs from CD or USB & then run apps like Paragon's.

Hi I tried this one last time 28/11/2010. It works fine on win 7 64 bit. I also used it to see what was accessing the internet.
this one installed over the old one before I was able to see if this is a newer program. So It did not uninstall the previous program or ask if I wanted to upgrade. It did register very easy as it did last time.
oh when I click reset on the bandwidth monitor the Packets Received and sent do not reset.

If you use your computer to high capacity, eg many tabs open in multiple browser windows, this program is a gem.

I've used it for years very successfully and very highly recommend it.

Do ignore the negative comments - they're not worth the screen space they're written on. There's a larger number of thumbs down simply because this very useful prgram has been a GOTD several times before.

It's an Excellent program!

I have to agree with Amy. Windows 7 has these built in. Start > Search Box > perfmon.exe . From the actions tab just choose resource monitor.

@Old Scotty Why do you need a tool to tell you the reason your comp is flaky is because your installation is 7 years old?

This is the type of program mainly of use to the expert, that is it's not really for the average individual. It allows one to turn off and on processes but one needs to understand what those processes are.

This is the sort of program which can be useful when a problem occurs, especially when trying to see if a virus is running. It's also useful for finding processes left behind by old programs. If one is having trouble with their system, especially if the system seems sluggish, one can use a program like this to track down where that problem may be coming from.

But there's enough free software, as well as what's built into Windows, that does much of this already so I can't see a lot of people paying for this.

My personal choice for this type of software is jv16 Powertools.

SysResources Manager 11.1 does provide users with convenient shortcuts to many of Windows applications. What's dejecting is that this software is somehow a veneer of boosting and optimizing your computer. It only digs out the many applications you already have in your PC and place them in front of you. Other than that, this software may be seemed a slovenly-made tat by many users.

There's nothing much laudable. What's confusing is that there are a few alternatives to this software which are free, as mentioned by others.

SysResourcesManager does try to put a prettier face on what is essentially "pages of numbers" (and some might say more friendly) - but when it comes down to it, Process Hacker is my regular Task Manager replacement (its driver is also now signed so 64bit windows aren't a problem).

(Portable version - http://processhacker.sourceforge.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=158 )

re: SysResources Manager - Something strange going on with the "Extras" menu - doesn't drop down as expected on my system (just mentioning it - hopefully the developer can fix this cosmetic problem up-suspect it is because he had troubles displaying the menu with icons). In fact the "Extras" menu contains several things that could've been left out with no loss of functionality (Changing your screensaver, screen resolution, emptying the Recycle Bin, hiding the windows taskbar or accessing control panel applets don't belong - and indicate the developer is unsure exactly where the functional boundaries of his own application lie.)

Not impressed with the "Memory Defrag" type feature - but thankfully it can be disabled for those who do not wish to participate in such nonsense (would be better if the "Free Memory Now" and "Quick Defrag" options disappear from the system tray menu, when the feature has been disabled in options).

I'd like to see some more work on the registry key section taken further - currently it feels "unfinished" and the helpfile doesn't exactly enlighten as to what the feature provides. (at least give some integration with regedit - at best, take a look at sysinternals procmon).

Lock Computer Feature is already provided on all of the "Required" Windows versions of 2003/XP/Vista/7 (Again an example of features that are included for no apparent reason).

The Skin Editor is a nice extra - though entirely unnecessary. Handy for people who want a graph at all times on their desktop to be color coordinated with their wallpaper and other gauges, graphs and widgets. (It makes the "modders" happy).

SysResources Manager still needs some work on the user interface before if feels solid and like a single application - at the moment I am left feeling like it is several modules stuck together each in various states of completion - A jack of all trades, master of nothing.

Disk Activity tells you that Reads/Writes are active, but not which drives specifically.

Bandwidth Monitor does not select the currently active network adapter... I had to pick the correct one from a list of about 15 adapters. Additionally the numbers do not agree with what my router and utorrent are telling me my current bandwidth usage is (and that's taking into account the overhead in utorrent). It's about 80% higher than the actual usage on average. It also does not tell you what ports are using the bandwidth, lowering the usability of the feature.

The drives tab doesn't have much useful information... no SMART status or drive activity. About the only useful thing is the "Sectors per Cluster" and "Bytes per Sector" numbers, and I'm not even sure they are accurate - I think they are wrong for two of my drives.

The Network Connections tab just gives you the return of netstat basically. It doesn't tell you the bandwidth each connection is using or anything useful like that.

The Services tab appears blank on my computer.

The Special Folders tab appears blank on my computer.

Anything not mentioned basically functions as expected. Overall anything this program can do can be done via various freeware/open source utilities.

Free alternative? Win 7 / Vista has this all and more built in. That's truly free.

Well, that and about 20 other freeware suites that do the same thing.

Sorry but I didn't see the value in this software when MS built it in already. Sure it's very cool for freeware but it's not freeware.

I do admit most users haven't a clue that these functions are built in. MS doesn't supply a full program reference when you buy windows. A good book on windows does and every user should what those 300 "not documented in the retail windows manual" programs do.

And you wondered why the "old computer" is acting slow? It's all the stuff you add when windows already does it without blowing up the registries with unneeded entries. How many Task Managers does a person need? (taskman) View my network connections? (resource monitor) CPU cores? It's all in windows already. You just need to read the book to realize why IT Pros don't use these goofy suites and use the tools already provided by Microsoft. All these tool suites use windows built in API's anyway. All they are is a shell for windows built in programs.

Book on Win 7: $21.99 usd. The knowledge and skill you gain: Priceless.

On the surface this doesn't seem to offer much more than the standard features built into Windows. Look more closely, though, and you'll find a range of features that not only go beyond what the system offers but beyond what most typical task managers offer as well.

Want to know what's communicating with the net? It's here. Want to look more closely at what's running...registry keys & system modules, for example? It's here.

There are some odd choices included, such as a program launcher (the world doesn't need another), screen resolution changer and clean up utility for internet explorer only (huh?). There are also some things missing (a 'terminate process always' feature like Process Lasso - a former gaotd offering - for instance). None of this is a big deal

There are sure to be the inevitable complaints from the denizens here ('I can get all this from freeware' --not easily -- or the ever-popular 'make it portable' -- we KNOW why you want a portable version (so you can reinstall this offering)-- but don't listen to them. Every once in a while, GAOTD hits a home run in its offerings. This is one of them. Grab it.

Third free alternative: processXP from sysinternals
Useless and expensive (21.90$) for a very ordinary program!
