When I run Avast anti-virus on this programme it tells me that it contains a Trojan Horse called Win32:Spyware-gen [Trj].
Can anyone confirm that this is correct? If so, perhaps it shouldn't be on the site. (ps... thanks Andrew - your site is my top site after BBC !)

ESET always blocks with false positive! Teach that guy's that it isn't!

I used that often on XP 32bit but on Windows 7 64bit it does crash. Guess this is because of 64bit, but I can't test this either.

DTaskManager adds additional features above Windows' native Task Manager including batch termination and control over even protected system processes. The program can suspend and reactivate processes (useful for effectively "pausing" a program without closing) as well as automatically managing process priority. 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.

Have used for a few years. It's simple to use, provides keyboard shortcuts for programs, web sites, special characters, etc. The reason I switched to Clavier+ from standard Windows shortcuts was that various Windows updates gradually broke their functionality.

@MoisheP, I always like to point people to Executor. It does global hotkeys and is a keyword-based launcher as well!

v. 11.0 implements directly opening a Windows app (previously, "metro" app). Still a simple, efficient tool.
