ProcexplA new version of Processor Explorer shipped yesterday and it is better than ever at helping you find unwanted malware. The new version is Version 16.0.

This version of Process Explorer introduces a new integration with VirusTotal.com, an online antivirus analysis service. When enabled, Process Explorer sends the hashes of images and files shown in the process and DLL views to VirusTotal and if they have been previously scanned, reports how many antivirus engines identified them as possibly malicious. Hyperlinked results take you to VirusTotal.com report pages and you can even submit files for scanning.

To use this new feature you just need to turn it on. After running Process Explorer click on “Options” and then VirusTotal.com. Next select “Check VirusTotal.com”. The first time you enable this you will have to accept an agreement.

Try it now! You can download it from the Sysinternals section of the TechNet website here:
