My computer has been running like crap, so I've been trying to figure out which processes are doing what so I can shut down what I don't need. This program process explorer is great. One cool thing about it is you can just hover the cursor over a process and it'll tell you what's using it. This is expecially useful when trying to figure out whats running under an svchost. Also makes it easy because you don't have to sit there and google everything. If you do want to look on the internet you can also right click and select go online and it'll run it through bing for you.

Thought I'd recommend it, wish I found it a long time ago.

I've been using process explorer for many years.

If you think you should have more disk space available, I love this app: spaceSniffer http://www.uderzo.it

While you are at it once you have killed all unused process run CCleaner. It cleans up a lot of stuff that Windows never touches, including purging the page file. Then run Defraggler to defragment. Works wonders for PC performance.
