A review of System Explorer by Fernando Ortega

System Explorer is a completely free application which gives you, the Windows user, full power over your system by allowing you to explore to your heart's content. System Explorer gives you access to currently running processes, programs configured to start up on boot, uninstall pretty much everything and manage the services running on your computer.

This program is great for both novice and experienced users and the learning curve isn't that big, especially if you are already familiar with how Windows works.

One of the great main features of System Explorer is the ability to perform comparisons between snapshots of changes to the system settings and Windows registry. System Explorer also gives you access to online file search databases, great if you're a little suspicious of running processes you don't recognize.

As an added bonus, System Explorer gives you access to virus protection via VirusTotal making it easy to check whether a file or running process might harm your system.

Customizing System Explorer is one thing that puts it ahead of some other (even commercial) tools: it's highly configurable and sure beats the Windows task manager. Don't forget, this is freeware and often updated for bugfixes and features!


System Explorer is an application that can be used to retrieve detailed information about numerous system characteristics and elements as well as for the management of processes, services, tasks, connections, Windows startup sequence, web browser plugins, software uninstalls, computer usage history files and even system snapshots.

The interface of the application is well designed providing access to the large number of tools into a single window which contains all the functions and features displayed in a tree type structure.

Each tool is displayed with all its available settings and even more options and operations may be performed from the context menu available at the mouse right click.

An overall system performance summary is also available permitting the monitoring of various system components load such as CPU usage, network usage, ram usage and others.

Overall, System Explorer is an excellent free application designed to help advanced users control the tasks running, processes and Windows services loaded in the background as well as system startup programs and software uninstallations.
