Process Library is a very cool online database of Windows processes and their importance. Anyone who’s ever suffered from a ‘rundll’ error or something similar (and who hasn’t?) should bookmark this immediately. It’s also useful for finding out whether you’ve been hacked, if you get weird error messages and the like. There’s also a very cool Windows Task Manager freeware plugin called ProcessQuickLink which turns Task Manager into a much more useful tool to discover what processes from which applications are running on your computer. A superb resource.
Written in plain English and free to all PC users, this Web site provides a unique and detailed online database that lists everything that should, and should not be running on your computer. In just over three years ProcessLibrary.com has already attracted five million hits every month! Deep in the recesses of any computer, innumerable processes are running silently in the background. Some hog system resources, drastically slowing computers down; others are a haven for spyware and trojans, violating privacy and giving hackers free access to compromised systems.
