    Is there any kind of Task Manager substitute I can download out there? My girlfriend's laptop came with XP Home and its Taskman is driving me crazy, but I don't want to install XP Pro on her PC because I don't have a spare lisence for it. Any (preferably freeware) app has the same capabilities as the XP Pro taskman?

    I didn't know there was a difference. What's different betwixt the two?

    The Hom version doesn't have the Processes, Performance, or Networking tabs, or even a menu bar - just the list of running apps. It's driving me crazy.
