Also, a reminder that the Sysinternals Live service allows you to execute Sysinternals tools directly from the Web without hunting for and manually downloading them. Simply enter a tool’s Sysinternals Live path into Windows Explorer or a command prompt as http://live.sysinternals.com/<toolname> or \\live.sysinternals.com\tools\<toolname>. You can view the entire Sysinternals Live tools directory in a browser at http://live.sysinternals.com.

 

More to come,
