12/3/2012 Version 4.0.0

Version 4.0.0 has been released in Installer and Portable version! New release with a new main version is on and we would like to apprise You with the main changes and new features.

New color theme – new cloak for the application

Maybe You are already familiar with the color themes provided in older versions. In the actual version the color themes were re-worked in a way which should help in a more readable displaying of information - user will mainly find the changes in graphical modules like Performance, Networking and also in the CPU Usage tab of the Process detail. The change of the color theme can be done in Main menu->Options and on the first tab "General".

Updated Performance section

Performance module for previous versions displayed basic information about CPU, RAM and hard disc load. With a new rebuild module user will find the information in a new graphical arrange - all main information are displayed horizontally, supplemented with many additional information in the bottom of the module screen.

Improved Networking section

As a reflection to user needs, we have added new statistics in the Networking module. In the new design, more information is tracked for the global net traffic for user's computer. In the left part of the module's screen user can find statistics for data sent and received, related to a specific start point - with a new functionality user can reset the start point of the traffic tracking. Also there is a possibility to switch on or off the individual charts of traffic sources on a right mouse button. Information are displayed for active networks => networks without traffic are not displayed in the list.

Disk & Network Usage statistics

This statistics are displayed in Tasks and Processes sections and also in separate Disk Usage Statistics tray icon. Version 4.0 has this information hidden by default. If you want to enable it, you must check "Use Event Tracking for Windows" in Advanced section of System Explorer's Options.

02/22/2012 Recapitulation of changes in version 3.8

Dear Users of System Explorer, From version 3.8.x the application has undergo a number of system changes.

Here are some of the most impacting system changes:

  • Full support for 64-bit OS, added new 32-bit and 64-bit service. Since this time the SE application can fully support and capture all 64b processes and environment.
  • New service (You can see it in the list of Processes : SystemExplorerService64.exe) enables the application to run fully under standard user rights, no elevation needed (so no more yellow bar requesting elevation of user rights and "Require Admin rights" option).
  • With this service, we were able to add list of modules for 64bit processes in Process Details, add command line for 64bit processes in Processes and much more. This service is crucial for users working with Windows Vista and 7.

The GUI part of the application has been changed as well :

  • The tabbed views stay in the application, but the tabs can be now locked in the view.
  • New columns were added to the Processes and Tasks. Now You can display more information about Disk, Network and Memory usage.
  • In the Processes module, You will also find a new column displaying CPU Graph information, which can help the users to quickly see the CPU load of individual processes in a longer time scale than just the actual second. Without double-click for process details You can see all processes load and decide which one is constantly overloading Your computer.
  • Also the networking module has been changed to show more information related to all the traffic Your computer is producing.
  • New icon for displaying processes for all users in the list was added – You can find it with description "Show processes from all users". By clicking the icon You can add or remove the list of different users in the multi-user environment on one operating system.

Hit ration of the Security Scan:

Thanks to all users contributing the File reviews database, the database is growing very fast. In the time of release the 3.8.4. version it has overcome 6 million of unique files. For the number of user reviews and the total number of files, the number of unknown files during the Security Scan has significantly reduced. The hit ratio (number of known files) is now more than 95% of all files of common computer which makes the SE one of the fastest and accurate system scan application.

Also few new features improving the faster and easier application usage are implemented.

System Explorer 2.1.2 Standard Mode System Explorer 2.1.2 Compact Mode
Classic Style
Compact Style

Compact Style

The user interface was enhanced. Now you can change look to old System Explorer 1.5 style. Left menu with the list of windows can be switched off and replaced with top-menu switch. Main application screen is thus enlarged for those who prefer the classical and compact application look.

All the individual sections can be easily changed form the top-menu switch. User can easily pick the screen from list as usually - just click on the bold text of the actual screen name.

Processes highlighting

To improve the first-look overview on the main application window, all newly running processes lines are for three seconds filled with green underlying color. User can quickly recognize all new processes running on the computer.

Also the line of process being terminated is for three seconds filled with red underlying color. This can help the user to find the main actions occurring on the computer in a fast and more transparent way.

Lines with the core system processes are grayed. It can help in a faster way to differ the system and non-system processes running on the computer.

The processes with the same name as some system process, which is not running from the system directory, is colored red. User can directly find the suspicious processes on a first look.

Processes Tree correction

If process doesn't have existing parent process, then it can't be correctly placed to Process Tree. New version of System Explorer will automatically determine the right place in tree by process user SID so the Process Tree will be better organized.

Improved updates check

Search for new updates is now more user friendly. User can decided if the information about new updates should be raised for all updates, on major releases only or the check for new versions will be disabled, letting the user not being bothered with raising new version window and giving the chance to check for the version manually. As we are improving the application rapidly and based on our users' recommendations, we recommend to check for All updates.

Web changes

Also the web pages of the application are developing rapidly. New users Forum has been introduced with the topics important for better user-developer interaction. The remarks, notes and requests are quickly processed and replied by forum administrators.

The file database is uniquely incorporated to the most application screens just on a right-click of the mouse. The database is growing each day to provide more information about all files that can be found on user's computer. This helps in a great way to improve the system stability and keeping the system clean of any harmful files and well protected.
