—and the Delivery"> The Promise—and the Delivery

If youre like many of us, you find Windows Task Manager both tantalizing and frustrating. It gives you just enough of a peek into your machine to be fascinating, but not enough to be useful to anyone without a lot of time to spend researching. By supplying hard information about what those cryptically named processes do and by giving you control over them—all in the same simple interface—TaskPower delivers what Task Manager only promises.

With a community of users constantly contributing to a supervised process-information database, TaskPower will just get better. And you can take an active role in its success.
