Task Manager That Hooks Ctrl-alt-del

Recommended Posts

http://rapidshare.de/files/881543/TASKMGR.zip.html (15KB!!!)

Finally i've translated (it took me whole 5 min) my simple "Task Manager".

The main benefit is that it replaces standard ctrl-alt-del taskmanager and can help even when all your programs dead.

Install: extract into \system directory. Add "device=taskmgr.vxd" to [386Enh] section of system.ini. Reboot. (Uninstall: delete files. Remove line.)

You can replace Taskmgr.exe with another good task/process manager. Just put it in your %PATH%.

If you know good task/process manager, please tell me.

Hi, yeah it works for me. It doesn't lock up everything like the normal one.

What do you mean by: "help even when all your programs dead."?

I think he is talking about when explorer is dead, how do you get it to start again without the 2k/xp taskmanager's "Start New Task" option?

also Tihiy, can you make your Task Manager app display an icon on the System try just like the one from W2k/XP? Win2k/XP's version of Task Manager can also be minimized and can track CPU & memory usage.

Maybe - not so hard. But everything needs to be rewritten, current version is very simple and actually isn't useful. Keyboard hook is much more important part of it.

Tihiy, for a good task manager program please try to search for "Niresoft Solutions", "Task Manager", or tm9xME.zip. I'm not sure where I got this but it looks good.

Same here as far as collecting..

No prob with rapidshare here.. It is a tiny file.. No point in using anything more if you do not have a web server of your own. :no:

Link for Niresoft 9XMEtaskmanager: http://www.pchardware.ro/Download/index.ph...0&catid=5&ord=1

Haven't tried but sounds good, may be abandoned as can't find authors site?

Cool..and thankyou. I remember this.. Too bad the link you pointed to points to the dead domain name.. However, it was/is enough to figure out the file name.. Which, BTW for those interested, is "tm9xME.zip".. Google it and you will find several sites hosting it.

Yes, i remember it was good. It closely resembles nt-xp task manager interface, but it's written on Visual Basic, and it means you can't rely on it. Its somewhat slow.
