Spyware Process Detector is a tool used for monitoring all running processes on the system. It does this to be able to detect if there are any processes run by malware or other threats that may be present in the computer. The program scans the system of processes that may be launched by threats and displays them on the main window. All the results are color-coded according to their threat level. Processes highlighted in red are the ones that pose the highest threat, while those highlighted in green have a low threat level. Other information, such as the process ID, process name, status, filename, company, and description are also displayed
More information can be viewed by clicking on a process. The process information window launches containing five tabs for different information categories – general, windows, threads, modules, and handles. From the process information window, users can type in notes or mark processes as safe to keep in the system.
Other features of the application are the following:
• Capable of detecting threats (Trojans, viruses, and spyware) that are not detected by other anti-virus applications
• Detects processes that are not visible in the operating system
• Provides detailed information on each of the processes detected
