Windows Process Description:

The process.exe program is also known as the Command Line Viewer/Killer/Suspender. The process.exe program works with Windows NT, 2000 and XP operating systems. The process.exe application will work even if the task manager of your computer is disabled. The process.exe program also works with remote machines that have Microsoft Telnet Server.

The process.exe application is capable of viewing the list of active processes, the owners and the CPU time of each process. Another capability of the program process.exe is killing processes. With the process.exe program installed in your computer, you have the power to immediately kill certain processes by simply specifying the Process ID or the name of the process itself. Killing immediately means that a program will be terminated without prior saving or clean up. In terminating files using the process.exe program, it is more recommended for you to indicate the Process ID because there may be times when two or more active processes have a similar name. The process.exe may also close processes. This is different from terminating processes because when closing a program, you allow it (the program you wish to close) to first save all modified files, clean up the cache and flush buffers. One very minor effect of closing a process is the formation of deadlocks. This is seen when you try to close a word processor application with an unsaved document. Before closing, the program will first ask you if you want to save the changes made to the document. The word processor program will not close until you make a response. Another feature of the program process.exe is the Suspend and Resume. This allows you to allocate CPU cycles to other programs without having the need to completely terminate another program. Other features listed under the process.exe program include the ability to change the priority of other processes. You may also change the affinity of a process though affinity is useful only with multiprocessor systems.
