The Ultimate Troubleshooter program lets you view your PC’s running processes and get an idea of whether they’re benign or not, using a clever traffic light colour theme. You know, red for danger, yellow for caution etc. It’s $25.00 for what is basically a swished up Task Manager, but could be useful for the computer newbie…?
A staggering 65% of problems which a PC encounters, whether in business or at home, are not caused by hardware problems, they are not caused by viruses, they are not caused by spam; they are caused by background tasks. From PC lock-ups to illegal operations, Internet Explorer crashes, slow-downs, and more…The trick to having a PC that runs smoothly most of the time, is to know which background tasks are good, which are not, and which are needed only sometimes.
