Yet another handy little utility!

AppSpy 2.0 will show you every program running on
your computer. This program is very useful for checking
to see of there are Trojans, key recorders, or any other
spy programs running on your computer. Highlight a program
and press the "Terminate Program" button to close it instantly.
AppSpy will warn you if you are closing a Windows component
program and will ask you if you want to continue. Press
the "Get Info" button to get the file information of that
program. Press "Scan for Trojans" to scan for the top seven
most common Trojans. Trojans are small programs that let other
people control your computer when you are connected to the
Internet.

please note: demo only, works fine but full features cost a few dollars.

I use the demo as a quick launch to see what the hell just started up
whenever suspicious of something.

KEWL app for sure!

Enjoy ...

Well not per say, put I always need the know what's going on
as am always checking my firewall.

I can't recall any instance of where I found something that shouldn't have been there but alwasy manage to have a look to see whats running
thats considerd normal and should be runnning.

with the above list, I've learned more about what it is and why.

but no, no trojans or illegal no approved apps that I have found,
only just odd stuf that I needed to learn/read about why it had/has to be running.

I do recall I got my hands on this tool because I at one time thought
I had a virus that was sending mail on my behalf from one of my accounts,
but it turned out to be someone accessing root and using sendmail on
my server at my host at the time.

not a local problem.
