webfork on 5 Feb 2021

Process Hacker is a feature-packed tool for manipulating processes and services on your computer. Includes a simple, customized tree view, detailed performance graphs, list of network connections, comprehensive process list (including hidden), full control over processes, rootkit termination, and DLL controls.

Alternatively, Process Hacker Portable is stealth.

Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Settings location is specified by passing the -settings parameter to Process Hacker, together with the full path to the settings file.
Stealth: ? No. To make stealth:
  1. Delete/rename kprocesshacker.sys before launch or start the program with -nokph argument. Note that this will disable some advanced features
  2. Delete/rename plugins\UserNotes.dll before launch. The UserNotes plugin saves its settings in %APPDATA%\Process Hacker 2\usernotesdb.xml
  3. Although there is no automatic update checker, avoid this option in the Help menu as it will leave a trace in the Internet Explorer browser cache
License: GPLv3
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Create an empty text file named ProcessHacker.exe.settings.xml in the x86 subfolder for 32-bit or x64 for 64-bit
  3. Launch ProcessHacker.exe

Thank you.
It's a great app, I personally prefer it over Process Explorer.

Please note it for this app in the description.


CornHolio the Gringo 2015-05-02 16:54 got v.2.34, and its Stealth.
The UPDATE function is a plugin in folder /plugin, called Updater.dll.
You configure it through hacker/plugins.
If You ever not gonna update, just delete Updater.dll.
Also consider OnlineChecks.dll, who checks Your searches for descriptions
of files/resources etc.

Love the "Disk" tab -- frequently when there's a computer slowdown and it's clearly not a processor issue, it's because the hard drive is read/writing some crazy amount of data from antivirus to some background maintenance. Very useful to see what's going on under the hood.

Cause it is a delthi and you can't make the process hacker works untill you install it and when go to c:\program files and copy process hacker 2 folder and data from appdata if you can't find or do not know how to find this place so you can download everything program and then you can find it just type in the search box process hacker and that's it :)
Happy making protables ;)
if you wannt make it hide all source codes from users you can make it with winrar :D
and make it more professional app.

how does this compare to System Explorer?

A couple requests:
* A Startup manager
* Group services in a treeview and arrange them by 'Group type'
* Service description column
* Open handles/open dll files just like process explorer
* 'Single-click tray icon' should be on by default
* Trayicon network history
