From the Windows startup, services and software are run in the background of your Windows to perform system tasks. These processes are mostly safe and secure, but it may happen that malware can manage to slip in their midst. With the free Windows Process Security, you’ll be able to check the safety of processes running on your computer by searching from over 130,000 threats. If the software detects a dangerous process (which may for example record your actions on the Internet, send emails without your knowledge, slow down your computer, etc…) and consuming unnecessary resources on your system, you can stop it and delete it permanently from your computer.
