PowerTool 1.6

PowerTool is a capable set of utilities for helping you explore exactly what's running on your PC, and your overall system configuration. It's oriented towards PC experts who would like to use it for manually detecting, analysing and removing malware, but the program also has many other PC analysis and troubleshooting applications.

At its simplest, you can use PowerTool just to view particular areas of your system. There's a tab which lists your running processes, for instance. Others cover your Windows services, startup programs, scheduled tasks, loaded modules, currently active network connections, and more.

Elsewhere, a Registry tab acts as a mini-REGEDIT, while a Files tab is a very simple version of Explorer - very useful if the Windows equivalents no longer work for some reason. And a third tab not only displays your HOSTS file, it allows you to edit it as well.

Right-click various items in these listings, though, and you'll also find some far more advanced options. So you can force the termination of a program and delete it immediately afterwards, for instance - perfect when you're tackling malware. You're able to similarly stop and delete a service. And there's an option to search for process names online.

If you need more, there's plenty of extremely low-level information to help experts detect malware: Ring 0 hooks, Ring 3 hooks, all kinds of in-depth kernel details, even a disassembler to show you what's happening at a particular entry point.

And if you're a Windows expert then there's even an option to modify the protection of a particular memory block, perhaps so that you can manually alter it: hugely risky, but also very handy if you know what you're doing.
