Windows process manager has become one of my most essential tools enabling me to kill all those processes and running tasks that hang-up my PC.

However, the problem is it's way too basic and sometimes ineffective because it simply can't open when you've suffered a particularly bad crash. Bill2's Process Manager gives you far more control over this tool helping you to manage, rule, and memorize the priority of tasks running on your machine.

Apart from displaying processes in much cleaner detail, Bill2's Process Manager makes it possible to create rules to indicate in which priority a program must be carried out, and even which processors it can use. This is excellent if you're running two processors and one is getting constantly overloaded although that probably only applies to a minority of users on very high-spec machines (in which case, crashes caused by running processes will not affect you much anyway).

There's no danger of malware affecting these rules in Bill2's Process Manager either as they are automatically safeguarded. Of course apart from this, you can also kill processes on demand in Bill2's Process Manager although sometimes, you may have problems getting the dialog window to open during heavy crashes.

Bill2's Process Manager is a great application for those with more than one processor or those on limited processor power that constantly experience RAM overload and crashes.
