If you like me works with Windows for a living or just are a geek ;-) you properly already know the great tools from Windows Sysinternals. If you don’t know about Sysinternals hang on for some great tools. Sysinternals was original created back in 1996 by  Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell and was back in 2006 bought by Microsoft. I think that we very many that was a bit skeptical about Microsoft buying Sysinternals, but actually not much have changed. The products are still small, great and most of all for free. In this post I will tell you about some of my favorite’s products from Windows Sysinternals.

4 great tools from Sysinternals you might want to check out:

ZoomIt (267 KB) – This is a great Zoom tool if you are speaking for a larger audience and want to make a demo where everybody needs to be able to see the details. With this tool you can zoom in and draw freehand on the screen

Process Monitor (1.26 MB) – With this little tool you can do real-time monitoring of files, registry and process activity. This program is great if you need to figure out where a specific program e.g. writes its log files or where in registry it keeps its settings.

Desktops (60 KB) – This little utility is something that I actually not yet have tried, but I came across it when I did my research for this post. It is something I will check out in the future. What it does is that it creates 4 virtual desktops for you giving you a great way to organize your icons and applications. This is a feature that other operating system has had for years.

TCPView (284 KB) – With TCPView you can monitor TCP and UDP traffic from your computer. It is a handy tool when you are trying to figure out what port you need to open up for in your firewall to get a certain program to work.
