In an attempt to find a quickie utility to force open files to close under Windows I stumbled upon TaskManagerEx that extends the Windows Task Manager with such yummy features as:

  • Use different color for services
  • Find a used file by any process. (Use * as file name for showing every used file)
  • Find a used module by any process
  • Use different color for processes if the CPU usage reaches a given limit ( 25%, 50%, 75% )
  • Query list of every files, handles, modules, windows used by a given process
  • Close a used file (you can unlock an exclusively opened file, so you can delete it)
  • Unload a used module (so you can delete it)
  • You can kill services too
  • Fast end process. Press DEL key!

    Needless to say, this baby goes in Startup and C:/UTILS!
