Looking up TaskManager processes


Wouldn’t it be useful if Windows TaskMgr was able to indicate and/or display information on what each process was? I do this by hand now. When I go to someone’s machine and see a process I’m not sure of, I search google to see what it is. Is it spyware? A standard Windows service? Or some other app? Maybe Microsoft couldn’t provide the service itself, but could the OS provide a standard interface for it?


  1. Thanks. Now that I think about it, it’s interesting that I grab for Google first. I guess I’m a googler at heart.
