Add an option to blacklist a process (terminate it as soon as it starts) and to limit the number of instances of a program (both are sorely missed features from Process Lasso)

Response from the site administrator
evgeni, 31.05.2011
The blacklist is available as quarantine.
Than you for the second suggestion, I'll think about it

include a security rating based on behavior analysis of the process

Well, basically it has a list of known malware/viral behavior and rates them accordingly. For example, if it were signed by a trusted company then it gives it a +10 rating. If it is able to monitor and log system activity, a -7 rating. If it...

Allow the user to define a system baseline/snapshot

Chameleon should allow the user to take a snapshot of their systems over a user defined period of time (start recording/stop recording) and use that as a baseline for their system. The baseline would record all of the processes running on the...

add instances, so i can monitor several machines in 1 window, just by clicking on the list.

Eksamplewise if you have 2 machines, you could install the program on both, and 1 or both of them to connect to each other and administrate them. That would definitely make it usable in the server world. To have everything in 1 place.

Be able to set fixed process/app boot order.

This would allow for setting the load of low level and security processes before less essential ones on a consistant basis.
Response from the site administrator
evgeni, 26.04.2012
I'm not sure what you means.
The startup order can be configured with Chameleon Startup Manager
(http://www.chameleon-managers.com/windows-startup-manager/).

Be able to copy and set the boot/operating configuration to be your normal config.

I've noticed for several decades that Windows seemingly random boot configuration can at times be excessively slow or lightning fast. I would like to be able to force every boot to be in this fast configuration. This would dramatically optimize...

In fact it's possible to configure startup order of user's programs and disable unused services.
The startup order can be configured with Chameleon Startup Manager (http://www.chameleon-managers.com/windows-startup-manager/).
Support for services will be available later.

To kill (stop) a process. Enhance feature.

This feature does not work 100%. Some programs remain running. This problem is not only in Chameleon. Other softwares that purport the same feature, also fail.
Response from the site administrator
evgeni, 24.10.2012
I researched this problem but I did not find the solution.
If I found the way how to do it I will implement certainly.

add a way to invoke the regular task manager

Since the regular task manager has tabs that your program doesn't, such as Networking, it would be nice if there was a way to invoke the regular task manager from your program

I will add it next build.

add a way to move up and down a progam in the list

You want to arrange the active programlist. For example: move up the virus detection program or move down an indexing program. Implementation: Click a line and use the UP and DOWN keys to move a program in the list.
Response from the site administrator
evgeni, 23.09.2010
Thank you for your suggestion.
It's interesting idea.
I will think how to do it.

change icons

When I pin Startup Manager and Task Manager to the taskbar, they both have the same icon. Can we have different icons for each so it's easier to tell them apart?

Column Name [Process]. Allow move freely.

Move the column Name [SysHeader32] for any place of the TEvgTntListView. Currently she is fixed. Thanks!
Response from the site administrator
evgeni, 15.01.2012
In fact I'm going to make it visible always even you scroll to the right.
Could you describe in which cases you really need to move the column?
I'm asking because I don't like when I don't see the name of process.

Make it possible to move the process Name column.

The Name column cannot be dragged to a different position unlike all the other columns. Make it possible to drag the name column to whatever position you want.

Add shortcut to the normal taskman places (Control-alt-del and right click on task bar) for easier access.

Add shortcut to the normal taskman places (Control-alt-del and right click on task bar) for easier access. Would make it easier to use the program, and make it more of a taskmanager replacement.

allow me to set the priority (generally higher) specifically for desired apps that I want to always have those priorities - this would be benefitial to anyone who has hidden background processes that they want to send as many cycles to as possible.

Response from the site administrator
evgeni, 16.04.2012
You can specify it via process' settings.
