Fixed: Task Manager Replaced by Sysinternals Process Explorer

I frequently benefit from Microsoft Sysinternals tools like Process Explorer (ProcExp64.exe).  One of the features is the ability to replace the Task Manager Default with Process explorer.

Process Explorer x64

However, I found a bug.  If you use the x64 version of Process Explorer to change the default you can’t change it back!?!?

Solution: You have to open the x86 version of the application.  Set the application again then a tiny check box appears.  Once you have the check box you can undo the default value.

Process Explorer x64 Check

X86 = ProceExp.exe (no 64 in the name)

Enjoy
