Process Hacker

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

I just rewrote the description a little bit so that the stealth information is all in one area (under the "stealth" area. I think this is a bit more clear, but it also might not be accurate. Please someone look over this and make sure I didn't mess it up in the quest to organize.

The text is still technically accurate. :) Because the BAT launcher is an alternative way to make Process Hacker portable, I moved the paragraph about it back into the "How to extract" field.

The BAT launcher link is broken.

Interesting. Process Hacker is one of my favorite go-to util. I will download the latest nighty and give it a spin.

I had to use resort to it, after my customary Sysinternals Process Explorer refused to terminate a wayward process because it was running with System privileges -- which apparently trump my Admin status on Windows 10.

I'm now considering switching to it definitively. Do you happen to know an easy way to launch it as Admin by default?

Thanks, Special. Wasn't aware of that, as I'm still running the stable v2...

Are you using PH as a daily runner? If so, have you linked a 'dbghelp.dll' and PEviewer?

Strike that, after testing the latest PH v3 release, I noticed that 'peview.exe' is already included and it comes pre-configured to download symbols...

Code: Select all

SRV*C:\Symbols*https://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols
Now, won't that "C:\Symbols" path collide with portability?
