Security-Task-Manager

Recommended Posts

I'm been playing with a program called 'Security-Task-Manager', by ShareIt! Inc. ,

that has been Helpful. :grin:

 

It has found Hidden process and service files, that Windows-explorer (File Manager) and 'Process-Explorer' can not find and display,

even though 'show hidden files and folders' is activated in Windows.

(I only ran it on one of our systems so far)

 

In STM you can move unwanted files to Quarantine, for testing before removal,

and then Remove or Restore, as needed.

 

Has anyone else tried this program?

If so what do you think of it?

 

Download here:

I wanted to get more opinions before purchasing it,

since it has a 30-day trial. (not free)

Security Task Manager

 

Security Task Manager is developed by neuber.com (ShareIt is just the order processors). It is a safe and trustworthy app. I have used the support some month ago, and it was excellent. I recommend this software (and I'm also a fan of their software Visual TimeAnalyzer ;-) ).

So far, the only thing I've found that I did not like about it

is that there is no option to create a shortcut-desktop-Icon, during Install.

I had to do a Search in File-manager to find it and then create Shortcut.

 

Converting from Trial to Paid versions was very Easy. :grin:

The paid version Adds capabilities. :grin:

I found that STM can be run from an external or Flash Drive,

making it portable, which is Great. :grin:

 

I used it to clean up another computer that had Way Too Many Hidden processes loading. 8-)

(Got it from 244, down to 228 processes, drivers and services, so far) :shock:

 

Man, those other software developers are really getting Sneaky about Hidden files.

I suppose they can always say that they do it for Security reasons,

but I'm glad we have programs like STM to Fight-Back with. ;-)

The Security 'Rating', of files, seems fairly accurate and helpful,

in determining which files need to be removed.

 

I've not been able to find out how often that Rating is Updated though???

It seems it would need updating Often, like any other Security program?

I found an application 'Updater' that STM can not Quarantine. :shock:

It is from 'Spigot Inc.',

and I think it has something to do with IObit Software! :shock:

 

Can anyone tell which IObit software it Installs with,

(I'm guessing it's ASC)

and why it is So Difficult to Disable? :?:

 

BTW - that is first and Only file I've found, that can Not be disabled by STM

Hi Toppack.

 

The ASC toolbar (at least originally) was by Spigot. I have not downloaded any toolbars since... I know they also were installing the Yahoo toolbar as well (which is also troublesome).

 

At the time I removed Spigot I used Revo Uninstaller to remove it... I could find no leftover bits in my system.

 

Sincerely,

-Mel

Live long and prosper!

Thanks for the Info.

 

It don't seem to be causing much Resource Loss,

so I guess I'll leave it for now.

It just seemed Strange that STM could not Disable the Spigot Updater,

when it Could many other processes and services, that I was surprized by,

including several other Toolbars and Updaters that were not activated but still being loaded.

(STM did remove the Spigot Toolbar files)

 

I did not even realize that all those were still there before I ran STM. ;-)

 

It was only the One computer that had All that Junk on it.

The others are Newer, so they are fairly Clean.

Even my Wife's computer was Clean, which was Another Surprize. :lol:

I found out that the Un-removable 'Updater' came with a U-Tube Toolbar,

not ASC.

The 'Toolbar' file appears to be gone though.

 

We had so much Junk like that, on that computer, it was difficult to determine what they were and where they came from. :sad:

STM gives sufficient data for most of them but not all.

I figured out why STM could not Quarantine the Updater. :idea:

(I'm so Embarrassed) :roll:

 

I had temporarily created two shortcut Icons for STM, one on desktop and one on taskbar,

and I had not activated 'Administrator' rights in one of them.

So when I ran it from there, STM could not Disable files that required Admin-rights.

 

They are All in Quarantine Now! :-D

By the way... I ended up with the ASC/Spigot toolbar a few years ago because I didn't read when I installed!!:oops::roll:

Live long and prosper!!

 

If it is still there, STM is an easy way to Remove it. ;-)

This program has really improved the Bootup times of our computers,

and it has been done in a safe and controled way. 8:)

 

But the person clicking the options really needs some experience about what software is needed and which are Not.

It's like any utility program that makes changes to the computer,

you can get in Big-trouble, real-quick, if not careful. ;-)

  • 4 weeks later...

More and more websites are automaticly installing hidden processes and services on our computers without asking permission. :evil:

They are not ordinary Cookies, even though they must be being installed as cookies,

but really slow down the Browser and overall speed of operation.

Ever few days I find another that I have to remove using STM.

 

They are becoming as Big a Problem, to keep cleaned out, as Malware-viruses.:-?

(I think it's because they get paid for each download)
