While running Windows and common applications, your computer is also silently operating a vast number of tasks, in the background and behind the scenes. These "invisible" tasks or processes often reduce the processing power of your computer consuming large amounts of memory. Booting time becomes longer and performance degrades to the point where your computer becomes extremely sluggish. Other background processes pose a direct security threat that will disrupt or cause critical damage to your system. Reports show that these harmful background processes like spyware, viruses and worms infect 90% of computers with an internet connection.
WinTasks 5 Professional gives you detailed information about each and every process that is running. It provides you with the tools to terminate and eliminate any program that may disrupt, damage, slowdown or crash your system.

- Stay Up to Date
Featured in USA Today and the Washington Times, the regularly updated process library of WinTasks is critical to all PC users.
- Main Interface
From the toolbars, you can access most of features in WinTasks. Use the buttons to modify processes, show sub-windows, and restore presets. Most commands can also be found in the menus and as keyboard short cuts.
The process list presents the information available on each process. Columns can easily be enabled/disabled from the View menu.
The Info window gives you a small description of most common processes to help you decide what can be stopped. You can also save your own notes for any process or rename the process if you like.
- Block- and Allow-Lists
The new block/allow feature makes it easier than ever before to secure your system. By adding an unwanted process to your block list, you can ensure that the process is never again allowed to run again on your system without your permission. If you need maximum security you can use the allow list to specify exactly which processes are allowed to run your system. This will prevent anything to run on your system without your explicit permission and will block any new security threat including unknown ones.
- Searchable Process Library
WinTasks gives you instant access to our extensive database of process descriptions and detailed process information. The process library search feature allows you to quickly find any process by name or executable. This feature can be an invaluable tool for anyone investigating possible security threats such as spywares, adwares, viruses or trojans.
The log shows all started and stopped processes, created and destroyed windows, loaded and unloaded modules, and any changes made to the autostart section of the registry.
The Statistics window shows the CPU and memory usage for the entire system and for the selected process (NT/2000/XP only).
Wintasks can run as a background process continously gathering CPU and memory usage information.
- Autostart Window
From the Autostart-window, you can easily remove, or temporarily disable, autostart programs in the registry.
- Windows belonging to a process
Window view lists all windows owned by a particular process and lets you perform a number of operations on the selected window(s).
Built-in scripting language can be used to modify any process when a particular condition is met; for example, the script shown previously stops the media player if it uses more than 50% of the CPU.
