  • In addition to scanning running processes, Security Task Manager also delves into your browser and looks for all browser extensions, which as you know are designed to allow legit developers to add browser enhancements, but are also used by Malware thugs to hide deviant tools.

  • Once Security Task Manager is finished scanning all running processes and browser extensions, it begins analyzing and rating the risk factors of each item that it has identified.

  • When Security Task Manager completes the risk rating phase, it sorts the list, color codes the rows, and displays bar graphs for each item according to its risk rating.

    As you can see, dark red rows indicate a higher risk factor while lighter red and white rows indicate successively lower risk factors.

Topics: Hardware, Google, Malware, Microsoft, Windows
