Task manager not updating xp
The Networking tab, introduced in Windows XP, shows statistics relating to each of the network adapters present in the computer.
By default the adapter name, percentage of network utilization, link speed and state of the network adapter are shown, along with a chart of recent activity.
The update interval can be set to High (0.5 s), Normal (2 s), Low (4 s), or Paused.
Once changed in Windows XP, the default update rate of 1 s can only be reset by editing the Registry binary data in The layout can be configured by the user by selecting "View" then "Select Columns..." from the menu.
However, when a process that is running under a security context different from the one of the process which issued the call to Terminate Process, the use of the KILL command line utility is required.
A chart of recent usage for both of these values is shown.
Choosing to End Task from the Applications tab causes a request to be sent to the application for it to terminate.
This is different from what happens when End Process is chosen from the Processes tab.
Choosing to "End Process Tree" causes Windows to immediately kill the process, as well as all processes directly or indirectly started by that process.
Unlike choosing End Task from the Applications tab, when choosing to End Process the program is not given warning nor a chance to clean up before ending.
Task Manager was introduced in its current form with Windows NT 4.0.
