Parental controls, P2P clients, antivirus software, backup and communication tools; almost all of us like to keep these applications running all the time. Sometimes, these applications crash when we are not around our PC and the processes are interrupted. For example, you start a download before leaving for work, hoping to make us of it upon coming back. However, sometime during the day, your download manager crashes, the download gets interrupted and you're left to wait again after manually restarting the program. Why? Because, while your PC was unattended, no one was there to restart the download manager for you. ReStartMe
is designed for just that. Once you set the application to monitor a process, whenever the process crashes or exits, ReStartMe will start it again. You can either select from a list of running processes, or start a new process by browsing for an executable file. The application can watch multiple processes at a time, and adds a password so that others cannot add or remove processes from the watch list.

By benefits of adding the URL is that after the video playback is complete, your website can be shown in any default browser automatically.
