  • <p>Process Monitor is an advanced monitoring tool for Windows that shows real-time file system, Registry</p>

  • <p>I would like to view the &quot;ITs Showtime&quot; session &quot;Advanced Windows Troubleshooting with Sysinternals Process Monitor&quot; but I can't download an offline version and streaming to here sucks, and sucks BIG time.</p> <p>Most of the time I just shrug and don't bother attempting to watch if I can't d/l. But I really want to see this one. </p> <p>Can you &nbsp;do anything about making it available for download Otto?</p>

  • <p>I can't make it work on my computer (Windows XP SP2 w. latest updates)</p> <p>The program just hangs and doing nothing. After 30 minutes, still nothing at all (not responding) CPU is 0%, Can't even get rid of it thru Task Manager. &nbsp;It does even not respond to the &quot;End Taks&quot; command.</p> <p>I had to kill my computer in the process of stopping!</p> <p>I am sorry to say that some up the upgrades from Sysinternals are being worse and worse.</p> <p>This thing, killing the computer and its OS because of a program hanging is a thing that I had in the 1980's.</p>

  • <p>Hello Bilbo,</p> <p>Regarding the streaming content, unfortunately I don't have the option of posting the actual WMV files. I'll see if there are some other options.</p>

  • <p>Process Monitor does not monitor registry operations since the last versions?</p>

  • <p>&quot;Process Monitor requires Administrators group membership&quot;</p> <p>I get the above msg on WXP Pro SP2 and yes I am an admin (Administrators Group). Thus will not monitor!</p>

  • <p>Hi Otto,</p> <p>I realize it's not your dept - but if you could pass on, using any channels you can, that offline downloads are really essential for some people; then that'd be great. </p> <p>I don't expect a change. But if they hear it from several sources they (and others) may start to get the idea.</p> <p>Both home and work (different ISP's) I can download pretty huge files, and prefer hi rather than lo when I can. But streaming just isn't worth the pain here. A couple of minutes of youtube is fine. Something the size/length of a technet briefing is just awful and for some reason the showtime ones are even worse for me.</p> <p>I appreciate whatever help or nudging you can do.</p>

  • <p>i enable boot logging, but process monitor not create *.pml file. under windows directory created procmon.pmb...</p>

  • <p>you need to change your text.</p> <p>these:</p> <p>- Cancellable search</p> <p>- Autoscroll setting is remembered across runs</p> <p>are not &quot;features&quot;, they are bugfixes.</p>

  • <p>I have used Filemon and Regmon extensively in the past troubleshoot issues and I am very impressed with the new Process Monitor. </p> <p>The integration of the Filemon and Regmon tools is brilliant. </p>

  • <p>Thanks!</p>

  • <p>Mark Russinovich's Process Monitor wurde aktualisiert und mit weiterer Funktionalitt ausgestattet. So bietet das kleine, kostenlose Tool jetzt erweiterte Kommandozeilen-Optionen, einen &quot;Finder&quot; zur Suche spezifischer Prozesse, sowie weitere Funktionen,</p>

  • <p>I have the same problem, a procmon.pmb archive of 7.74 Gb. Thanks for any help.</p>
