After you install the TuneUp Utilities on the computer, and when you try to open the Windows Task Manager, the TuneUp Process Manager box is initialized instead. This means that after installing the TuneUp Utilities, the traditional Windows Task Manager is replaced by the TuneUp Process Manager that allows you to perform almost the same tasks that the Windows Task Manager does. In some cases, the TuneUp Process Manager has a few added advantages over the traditional Task Manager, for example more user-friendly and intuitive user interface, etc.
If you are among those users who love to work with the traditional Windows Task Manager and feel comfortable with its user interface, you can get the default settings back. The TuneUp Utilities application allows you to disable the TuneUp Process Manager from within its interface, and as soon as you do so, the Windows Task Manager automatically gets re-enabled instantaneously.
Below are the instructions that will guide you through the process of disabling the TuneUp Process Manager in order to enable the Windows Task Manager:
- Using the administrator account, log on to the Windows on which you want to disable the TuneUp Process Manager.
- After logging on, initialize the TuneUp Utilities program. (TuneUp Utilities 2014 is used for this demonstration.).
- On the displayed User Account Control confirmation box, click Yes to provide your
consent to continue.
- On the opened TuneUp Utilities interface, click the Settings option from the top.
- On the opened TuneUp Utilities settings box, from the left pane, make sure that the
Integration category is selected.
- From the right pane, under the Windows section, uncheck the Replace Windows Task Manager with TuneUp Process Manager checkbox.
- Once this is done, click OK to save the changes that you have made.
- Try opening the Windows Task Manager this time.
- If the TuneUp Process Manager still comes up, restart the computer and then try again.
