Great program especially if you want to clear all the crap off! Unbeliever
It's not part of that! It's actually the file that runs task manager for windows 2000 and xp itself..!
I have fixed 3 computers so far with the same symptoms: pc it was extremely slow and crashed continually. The file taskman.exe could not be deleted: it created a copy of itself in windows and system32 folders. The only way I could take rid of it it was starting safe mode, deleting all copies of taskman.exe and removing all suspicious start up programs in msconfig. After that, the PC finally worked fine without traces of the taskman.exe file. Yoniko Goyo
It's probably the most helpful download I have ever used. I spent the entire day on it. Jospec
Completely Harmless- Great Program using to find stupid virus disabling firewalls :(
It tried to bite my toe and finger the other night Concerned Task
yeah, while runnign it i noticed that if you scroll through the list using the direction keys, its cpu consumption will keep going up untill it maxes. yeah... that can be bad. The cpu load is caused by the constant updating it does as you pass each process. Since you technically, well actualy you do select every one you go by, and it loads info about that process every time you scroll by one. Otherwise, its a great program. Blue Zero

Great program some days. At the end of trial it says that programs are running on your PC but they are not (spywares) so you buy program to remove it please dont buy this program! Vibox
That it's not dangerous and you're probably running it right now. Who cares
The program shows the hidden process, when is loading but then it disappear PXNDX
its just a task file didhidhc
The process can manipulate any program running on Windows, or any program that is part of the Windows operating system. A Hook is set for this one. A Hook is a Windows internal function that can forge a list of files on your hard drive, for example by manipulating the dir command. The program that starts the process is not visible to other programs like AntiVirus software and this is from the program itself! poppaj
"It's probably the most helpful download I have ever used. I spent the entire day on it." Thats horrible, you looked at all microsofts files to see if they where bad.
this program is to run the task manager produced by this site White Hat
usual for finding out if that unknown program is a virus or malware that came with your printer
Part of Security Task Manager, and is associated with the web site you're looking at now. Allows you to monitor the programs running in the background and easily find out which processes may potential be harmfull. Two thumbs up to this software. Ben
ROFL, This is Security Task Manager. I assume you know it's perfectly safe. Yes, hehe. Good Luck!
Well, I highly doubt that someone using the actual program wouldn´t know what´s its name, so, all of those playing "smartass" could spare us some time. In my case, I had TWO different WORMS, "taskman.exe", and "TASKMAN.exe", 16KB, that did not appear as running process in STM. You can find some information about it in the link I provided. Thank you for this useful forum, to the useful users.  See also: Link Ryo
Taskman is a part of windows and handles various tasks running on your system. Without it your computer would consistently crash. KEEP IT  See also: Link Trevor Goble
I have to agree with otto and yonik, I had recently tried to uninstall taskman. Yet it would not allow me to........safe mode was the only option that i could figure out...but in otherwords it is an pretty gud program...just minnor obligation!!! Gotcha
This file is use to process background display Ganesh
I think this is a file from microsoft because my Antivirus cant detect something. Ken
I think Virus. Mike Bosch - Software Engineer
Windows Task Manager - Perfectly safe BUT viruses and trojens are always mascerading as them. If you've not got taskmanager open and this process is still running (that you can see using hijack this for example) then you have a problem Liam (SiX) Deeney
Taskman is part of Windows, and manages a number of tasks running on your system. software Development
On my comp there appears every now and again a taskmgr.exe in c:/documentsand settings/(username)/Start menu/programs/startup folder. Even if deleted, it reappears, when I launch any program. The "bad guy" which recreates it is taskman.exe, 15k located in C:/Windows (and in some other folders). That file always recreates itself. It can be erased but reappears the next moment - the virus is giving care to this file... I didn't find program tools that identify or eliminate it. I'll try with safe boot, hope I'll be able to delete once for all this hook. This variant is surely virus. Teo
Taskman is a critical service that is needed by WinXP It allows the viewing and ending of active processes running on your system. In addition, you can use Task Manager to view system information, such as CPU and memory usage statistics. __________________ Stuart
