Sysinternals


A while back I listed the tools that I use and then listed the tools that readers use. Of all the tools listed, only one was from Sysinternals. But in reality I actually use many more when the need arises.

"The Sysinternals web site was created in 1996 by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell to host their advanced system utilities and technical information. Microsoft acquired Sysinternals in July, 2006. Whether you’re an IT Pro or a developer, you’ll find Sysinternals utilities to help you manage, troubleshoot and diagnose your Windows systems and applications. If you have a question about a tool or how to use them, please visit the Sysinternals Forum for answers and help from other users and our moderators."

The tools available at Sysinternals are some of the most useful tools available for developers and they've only gotten better since being acquired by Microsoft. Check out Mark Russinovich blog for some interesting low level reading.

I already knew and have used and still use many of Mark's wonderful utilities, and that's mostly on a daily basis. I didn't however had his blog on my rss feed, so I've just added it now! :)

QA uses a lot of their tools too. We used them to help us debug issues or fixed our systems when they've gone "belly up". I can't live without them!
