Hello, Sascha.

In order to solve this problem, instead of uninstalling Process Explorer, proceed like this:
  • Terminate Process Explorer.
  • Launch regedit, navigate to HKCU\Software\Sysinternals. Remove the complete registry subfolder "Process Explorer". Terminate regedit.

  • Launch Process Explorer. The process tree will be visible again.

  • Note: this procedure has been explained at minimum a dozen times in the past few years and might have been found using the forum search function. Wink

In order to uninstall Process Explorer proceed like this:
  • Provided you have configured P.E. to replace the Windows task manager, use P.E. to revoke this step.

  • Terminate Process Explorer.
  • Launch regedit, navigate to HKCU\Software\Sysinternals. Remove the complete registry subfolder "Process Explorer". Terminate regedit.

  • Navigate to the folder where the files procexp.exe and procexp.chm are located. Remove these files. If the folder is empty now, feel free to remove the folder as well.

  • Uninstallation done.

  • Terminate all Sysinternals programmes.

  • Launch regedit, navigate to HKCU\Software. Remove the complete registry subfolder "Sysinternals". Terminate regedit.

  • Navigate to the folder where you stored all the Sysinternals executable and helpfiles. Remove all these files. If the folder is empty now, feel free to remove the folder as well.

  • Uninstallation of the whole Sysinternals Suite done.

HTH,
SvenBomwollen

What a rude and arrogant reply: "Note: this procedure has been explained at minimum a dozen times in the past few years and might have been found using the forum search function."  The reason it needs to be explained is that it is a sh*tty procedure.

If this application was in any way cognizant of user interface interaction it would not allow the user to mess up their display options so much that a regedit was required.

How about a 'reset to default' option in the toolbar?

SvenBomwollen is not the developer of Process Explorer, and SvenBomwollen is not obliged to help anyone with issues relating to Process Explorer. It is a basic rule of the Internet to check if your question has been answered already before asking it.
