Acting as a task manager and system-monitoring utility, Advanced Process Controller enhances a user’s capability to control running processes. It has a well-designed interface that is easy to comprehend and use. A system performance graph displays CPU utilization and responsiveness. A list of running process is displayed below that is sortable by column header. The list resembles Task Manager, but features additional capabilities to set processes to auto start at login, change default priority at start-up, and always disallow or open the containing folder.
Advanced Process Controller shines in its ability to restrain out-of-control processes. You merely set your limits of total system CPU usage and process CPU usage and this utility will rein in any process that exceeds those limits. This greatly reduces the number of times an out-of-control process slows your system to a halt. Many of the system’s actions and process monitoring can be logged for debugging help. Though the seven-day trial is short, advanced users will find Advanced Process Controller an effective monitoring utility that surpasses Windows built-in task manager’s capabilities.
