Update:

Process Explorer v15

Process Explorer v15 celebrates the release of the Sysinternals Administrator Reference and the upcoming 15th anniversary of Sysinternals. This major update to Process Explorer, a powerful tool for inspecting and controlling processes, threads, loaded DLLs, and more, adds GPU utilization and memory monitoring on Vista and higher. It also adds the ability to restart services, has a smaller memory footprint, and has visually cleaner performance graphs.

If you're used to the System Information graphs in Process Explorer looking like previous versions, or like Task Manager, with a black background, then you're in for a big shock with version 15.0!

The task-bar (a.k.a System tray) icons are now all but invisible on a server: mid grey icon, mid-grey background, in a mid-grey task bar doesn't really show up at all. :no:

Anyone know where I can re-download the previous version?

Great! Thanks, for the link.

I thought I'd download it and save it before it disappears. Although FileHippo look like they have a complete list of old versions going back to version 10.2 from September 2006. In fact, their release history, with dates for about the last 30 releases, looks to be rather better than Microsoft/Sysinternals own.

For my other issue? Do you mean the CPU % (now deleted from my post)? If so, I realised soon after posting that what I was seeing was the process PID and the CPU %, more-or-less glued together as a string of numbers in the tool tip. After I noticed the very (very) slightly larger gap between two of the digits and cross-checked with the Process Explorer main screen I realised that it was a visual problem and not PE gone crazy, so removed my remark from the post. So, no, I wasn't reading 92.77 as 9277, but I was still reading it wrong.

Yes. I wonder what your initial response would have been if you had a PID of say 1280 and a CPU of 9077 = 12809077 :phhbbtt:

The graphs do leave a bit to desire in PE but I like the look when viewing System Information in PE v1500 over v1412.

:shocking: No, I'd never make that mistake -- I only have a PID of 1212 or 1296 :sweatdrop:

(The process percentage bit was reading 02 at the time so it was a bit more plausible)

I agree that the new graphs have a certain visual appeal (nice screen shots BTW) but that background is way, way too pale because it's identical to the general dialog box background colour.

If it was quite a bit darker (well, a LOT darker) I'd then rate it higher than the old version. The indicators on the left are better in 15.0. The old ones look very like a simulation of the LED volume level indicators on an older sound mixing desk.

OffTopic: What theme is that? Is it the Embedded? (like Royale only darker)

If so, is Embedded a digitally signed theme, with no Uxtheme patch required?
