I dl'ed Process Explorer of this site to use for computer maintenance but it's giving me issues (cannot access Help file for one) so I need a similar type of program to help me? Any suggestions? Needs to be non-conflicting with Vista, free, powerful but not bossy and easily used and understood. Thanks. :)

System Explorer hung up my computer. :( I'm doing some maintenance on my laptop so I'll try something else soon. Thanks for the link.

Process Hacker is working fine, but is there like a key or a manual for it so I can use it properly?

Process explorer is awesome!!!

Sometimes programs DO NOT EXIT properly when you close them and being able to "END PROCESS TREE" is quite usefull!!
