When ending a program, three different ways are available to kill a processes, including End, Quit, Kill and Kill Process Override for even increasingly stubborn programs.

Note: To save settings check "Save on exit" under the "Options" menu.

One of my favorite programs period! The "Trim RAM Usage" is absolutely essential for olow-RAM (256) computers. Really just "task manager" on steroids.

The best task manager ever.

SUPERB small well designed. Optionally can replace MS TaskManager. Many options and features. I use the reduce to the tray bar showing the mem usage "%"

Not compatible with Win9x/ME anymore. Please update the file description

It's not updated from about a year.
It's really a great software

A brilliant program. Much more useful than Windows Task Manager.

Fantastic replacement for Windows Task Manager!

Perfect! All that you really need , nothing more than that.
Other task manager replacements simply have too much.

I love this program and use it on my old XP-laptop.
Unfortunately on my Windows 7 (x64) netbook it caused the
CPU to always be at 100%.

DTaskManager doesn't work on Windows 8.1 x64.

Can't find version 1.54
only 1.53 is avaiable

Anytime I try to view Ports is causes the program to close, every single time. I'm using Windows 10 Home x64 so that may be the problem. Wish it would work so I could monitor the ports on occasion but maybe can be fixed in the future. :)

@MIKLO: did you notice Windows 10 isn't listed under system requirements?


MIKLO 2017-04-03 14:02

@Midas Oops Duh, I guess ya gotta be smarter than the software which I was not. lol Thanks for the heads up^


MIKLO 2017-12-19 14:30

Now I can try because Windoze 10 is listed in system requirements.
