This tutorial explains how to block any running process to save system resources.
You must have seen in the Task Manager that there are many processes running to help you work with applications and system properly. However, there are also some other unwanted processes that occupy resources for no use. Task Manager provides facility to end any process, but it can’t help you block that particular process. Therefore, a free software, called “Silent Terminator“, comes in handy.
Silent Terminator software provides the list of all the running processes and lets you block any process with double-click. You can also view the list of blocked processes in a separate tab within its interface. Apart from that, it lets you export the list of blocked process as INI file. You can later import that file to save time.
Above you can see the interface of this process blocker software.
Note: Blocking an important process can cause serious problems. So, you must be sure enough which process you are going to block. However, the software has the option to unblock any process which can help you solve the problem.
