For those not already in the know, Sysinternals is the name of a former company that’s now part of Microsoft that’s long been a source for some of the very best Windows monitoring, management, and troubleshooting tools around. The brainchild of Microsoft Fellow Mark Russinovitch (whose praises I’ve sung many time in this blog and elsewhere in my writings) and Bryce Cogswell, the Sysinternals Suite from Microsoft contains a total of 68 Windows tools, including my personal favorite, Process Explorer, whose capabilities have been around for years, but which became part of the expanded capabilities of Task Manager in Windows 8, just to give you some idea about how much sway over MS Mr. Russinovich can occasionally exert.
A new version of the Sysinternals Suite posted to the MS pages on 9/11/2014.
Here’s a list of the utilities contained in this sterling collection, now available as a single download file, with links to the “man-page-equivalents” for each one, for those curious enough to want to read more about them.
“Fie on that!” sez I: grab and download the whole set right away and play with it on your machine instead. You won’t be sorry.
