Process Explorer & 64-bit OS

Few years ago I mentioned a nice little program by SysInternals - Process Explorer (task manager replacement). I install it everywhere I go. Recently, I ran into weird problem, however. My work machine runs Windows 7 64-bit. PE works perfectly, the only problem is that I couldn’t make it to replace standard Task Manager. There is a menu option that should do just that, but running it didn’t change nothing. I finally managed to force it and here’s the solution, just in case someone else is struggling with it. Every time you run procexp.exe, it’ll create another file, procexp64.exe, then execute it (when running under 64-bit OS, I guess). Run PE, copy this new executable somewhere (it’s removed when program shuts down), close PE. Now, copy it back, run the 64-bit executable directly, go to Options->Replace Task Manager. Done! If you press Ctrl+Shift+Esc now, it should run PE instead of TM.
