The Windows Task Manager is often used for troubleshooting – perhaps
closing an application that isn’t working properly or monitoring system
resource usage. However, there’s a lot more you can do with Windows 7’s
Task Manager.
I was trying the CPU Time column, and I noticed that System Idle Process
time was very high and increasing 4 seconds at a time. Then it dawned on
me that this box of tricks has a quad-core processor!
The "set affinities" under Properties of a process shows how many cores
it is allowed to run on; you can alter this. I don't have the courage to
reduce it for SIP to just one, although I wish I did. I fear I might
have to spend hours on recovery afterwards.

The one I like is the ability to send a message to another user/machine
on the network, since MS depreciated the "Net Send" command on Vista and
Win 7.

Just another user on the same machine, I believe, not another machine.
