System Explorer Portable
A comprehensive Task Manager replacement

System Explorer is a powerful tool which tells you more about the programs running on your PC.

This starts with basic details, like process name, ID, CPU and RAM use. A Security icon highlights anything suspicious, and if you don't recognise a process then clicking "Details" opens a web page which may tell you more.

An "Action Log" pane displays key actions of the currently selected process, including any network connections opened and programs launched: perfect for hunting malware.

A Performance tab not only displays a graph of CPU, RAM and swap file use, but also highlights the most demanding processes.

The History tab displays a timeline of your recent PC activities, including processes launched and terminated, and network connections opened and closed.

There are other modules to display your startup programs, drivers, Windows services, uninstallers, network traffic, loaded modules and assorted other useful system information.

Most of these features go well beyond static lists. View your startup programs, say, and you can disable or delete any you don't need, search for them online, open their program folder or check their Registry key in REGEDIT.

A Snapshot tool can create snapshots of your system at any time - before or after the installation of a program, say - and display the differences between them.

Best of all, while this may sound overwhelming, smart interface design keeps any navigation hassles to a minimum. If you're only interested in the Snapshot and History tools, say, just set up the program to display those tabs only, and you need never see any of the other functions again.

Verdict:

System Explorer is easy to use and provides a host of computer maintenance and management tools. These don't have the depth of the more specialist competition, though. If you're an expert user who needs the maximum amount of detail about running processes, say, Process Explorer or Process Hacker will still be preferable.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
