AnVir Task Manager
I have been trying out AnVir Task Manager (http://www.anvir.com/), downloaded from and registered to Giveawayoftheday, for about two weeks. I wanted to have more control over what programs are running at any given time on my PC, but I also was curious about whether Task Manager would alert me to malware and other invasive software being installed from the internet. So far, I have been able to speed up my startup time by fine-tuning which programs run at startup, including delaying the startups of necessary programs, but programs that are not so necessary that they must begin at the moment I log in. While I haven’t acquired a trojan or other malware during this period, it is nice that Task Manager informs me when a new program launches which is yet another security tool for my PC. I think AnVir Task Manager is worthy software and I will continue using it.
