Various Thoughts

Anvir Task Manager window

One of my favorite programs on Windows is Anvir Task Manager.  While it does many things, I find its most useful features to be:

  • its disk and resource monitoring
  • more practical replacement for Windows Task Manager
  • the recently used folders button that appears in open/save dialogs

The Pro version, aside from monitoring and notifying, has a full startup/autorun program manager including the ability to delay starts.

You can also “Auto-block” startup programs that continually add themselves to the startup list even though you blocked them the first time.  If you suspect the presence of malware on your system, a handy feature is the ability to generate a “HiJack This” log that can be posted on various sites for expert analysis.

I recommend that you give it a try.  A free download is available from here.
