Windows 7: Process Explorer 15.3 Heat-Map

13 Apr 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Process Explorer 15.3 Heat-Map


I upgraded Process Explorer to 15.3 and didn't like the new Heat-Map feature so have gone back to 15.23 but I also went to the SysInernals forum to see what is up with this feature.

There is a thread requesting either removing or being able to turn off this feature.
15.3 uses white background in some columns - Sysinternals Forums - Page 1

I'm posting the link so anyone else who wants to request the option to remove the feature can post there.

Hope it is OK to post this... if not please remove.

Thank You

Interesting, I've never seen it before, don't know how invasive that seems to be. I like to keep the old installers around, just in case
Sadly, it's not the first time to see Windows program rebelling and ignoring user preferences, I've seen a few other examples like that (most notably, Windows Explorer)

Anyway, I've already dumped Process Explorer in favor of Process Hacker, I won't be fighting it so much.

Explorer.exe process using 25-35% of my i3 cpu
This started in the last couple of days, I leave my PC turned on 24/7 and rarely even reboot so I don't remember whether I might have installed something malicious. Also as I don't have an anti-virus maybe that could be the cause. Any help will be appreciated. Ok, I've tried killing the...

Internet Explorer and SysInternals' Process Explorer
(I'm aware of the SysInternals Forum but I can't seem to get a registration e-mail out of it.) IE can take A LOT of cpu. So I have long used Process Explorer to see which web sites are associated with the high-cpu instances of IE. (It's not a perfect technique as it does not identify which site...
