Take Full Control under Your System Processes
To determine if your system was compromised, run the Process Monitor from the AATools and see the list of the processes – applications and services – that are currently running on your computer. You have to know if all the programs are approved and you do not have any hidden application running behind your back.
The AATools Process Monitor is a tool that helps you identify hidden applications, kill running processes, and manage your PC resources usage more effectively. At least you'll have an idea what is currently running on your PC.
Be careful when ending a process. If you end an application, you will lose any unsaved data. If you end a system service, a part of the system may not function properly.
The Process Monitor presents the information about the system processes in the following tabs:
Shows all the processes currently running on your PC and provides additional information about each process: PID (the unique process ID), Modules (the number of modules used by the process), File version (the file version of the running process), Path (the full path to the program’s executable file), Company (the name of the file manufacturer), Copyright, Description (a short description of the running process).
Shows all the modules used by the selected process and provides additional information about each module: File version (the file version of the running process), Path (the full path to the selected module), Company (the name of the module manufacturer), Copyright, and Description. If the process has no modules, this frame is not available.
Shows all the drivers on your computer and provides additional information about each driver: ID (the driver unique ID), Path (the full path to the driver).
Here you can start, stop, pause, or resume services on remote and local computers, and configure startup and recovery options. You can also enable or disable services for a particular hardware profile.
