Process Explorer - sysintertnals - does it work with Windows 8

I use sysinternals Process Explorer a lot to monitor processes on my PC

I am moving to Windows 8 - does this work as well under Windows 8?

Are there any other better utilities out there

I use it to

Kill processes
monitor CPU usage

Process Explorer v15.23 works perfectly under Windows 8.

I also use Process Hacker occasionally:
http://processhacker.sourceforge.net/

Offers a few additional extras but essentially the same.

For info, the new Windows 8 Task Manager is now a lot more use than the old version. It is a lot more representative of accurate system statistics like CPU and memory usage.

If you are trying to keep bad processes from eating up your system - you can do it automatically  with the free Process Lasso: http://bitsum.com/prolasso.php

Been using it for months on multiple systems and love it.

It is compatible with Windows 8 - see the paragraph immediately above the comments section on the page above.
