If you are sys admin you probably know the Sysinternals tools. You might have heard that they were bought by Microsoft a while ago. Meanwhile the tools are available at Microsoft’s Windows Sysinternals technet site. If you don’t know about Sysinternals tools, I highly recommend having a look at them. Many of them are must-have-tools for system administrators. You can download now the complete Sysinternal Suite. I discussed Sysinternals Process Explorer and Sysinternals Autoruns some time ago. There also is a new tool, called Process Monitor, which combines the functionality of Filemon and Regmon.
