Chameleon Task Manager is a replacement for Windows task manager that enables the complete control of processes running on a computer optimizing the performance of Windows. It also provides more detailed information about programs.
Improved software response.
When some background software increases its CPU usage or hard disk usage, Chameleon Task Manager temporarily reduces its priority (include I/O and memory priority in Windows Vista/7) thus increasing the performance of a program in current use.
Increase free memory.
Memory optimizer automatically determines the necessary amount of RAM for every program.
Starting programs only when required.
You can forbid unnecessary software from starting (automatically kill processes), and launch programs only after a certain program or on certain days.
Security task manager notifies about newly launched programs, checks the files of all programs for modifications.
Quick access to process management.
To restart or optimize a process or to perform other operations, just open the standard menu of the program title bar or move the mouse pointer over the program in the tray.
The program collects resource usage statistics.
Thus you can determine which programs use the most resources, slowing down the computer.
The main features of the program are:
Checking program files for modifications and notifications about new programs
Task configurations management
Any number of configurations can be created and loaded if necessary
Resource usage statistics
Thus you can determine which programs use the most resources, slowing down the computer

Controlling programs via the standard menu of the program title bar
Just right-click the title bar to change the priority, restart the program, etc
Controlling hard drive usage
It is possible to notify about hard drive usage, reduce the priority, and close or restart any program
Controlling memory usage
It is possible to notify about memory usage, optimize RAM, and close or restart any program
Keeping programs running
Once a program is closed, it will be restarted
Synchronizing programs with other programs
It is possible to start/close an additional program when another program is started/closed
Displaying additional information about every program
You can view the resources of the program (icons, texts, etc), loaded libraries, files, and performance information, etc
