The best free process viewer

PrcView has long been my choice for best in class but Process Explorer has pushed it aside. The reason? A better display setup coupled with more features and even more information.  Process Explorer uses two vertical panes. The top contains all active processes while the second shows either all the handles opened by a selected process or, optimally, a list of DLLs and memory mapped files. A very handy search feature allows you to work backwards from named DLLs or handles to the owning process. A gem. Freeware, 230KB. http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/procexp.shtml...
