Wish you had a better tool to diagnose Win 9x processes? Try Pview95 from the SMS 2.0 Resource Kit. 

Wish you had a better tool to diagnose Windows 9x processes? Pview95 (Process Viewer) from the SMS 2.0 Resource Kit displays information about processes on local computers running Windows 95 or Windows 98 and provides much of the same information as Task Manager does for NT/2000 Workstations.

Process Viewer is a Windows 9x tool that is especially useful for investigating process  use. You can use this tool's graphical user interface to display information about processes on local computers running Windows 95 or Windows 98. Process Viewer provides much of the same information as Task Manager does for NT/2000 Workstations.  You can also use Process Viewer 95 to stop a running process.

I have found that Process Viewer picks up many more running processes than checking tasks using CTRL - ALT- DEL. Compare them for yourself.

You will first need to copy Pview95.exe to the workstation you want to diagnose. It is also available from the SMS 2.0 Support Tools. The version in the Resource Kit is newer, though.
