    How to start the task manager?

    Task Manager is a utility that reflects and manages all processes and programs running in the operating system. Using the task manager, you can find out the amount of resources used by the program, change the priority of its execution, or complete its work in compulsory form. This utility is especially necessary in the following cases: program freezes, finding out the causes of system brakes, it is unclear what caused them, and to identify and complete suspicious processes (this is if you know what should be started and what is extra).
