    Sysinternals, which has some tremendous freeware utilities, has been acquired by MS.

    Before they completely lock the door, if you are interested in some great "stuff", I would suggest doing it relatively quickly.

    Utilities sections here.

    Oh gosh. Sysinternals was the only thing HOLY left in this world. Now MS had to spoil that for me.

    Hi,

    Contrary to Squashman's pov, we can all look at it as MS getting kernel expertise from Mark et. al. and this is a good thing for MS. Read about it in Mark's Blog at:
    http://www.sysinternals.com/blog

    Perhaps acquisitions like this tend to see useful websites such as sysinternals go away, but as WhitPhil pointed out you can still get download all of the free utilities - I don't know what the deal is with regard to their paid for products like the Administrator's Pak.

    Let's just hope that Microsoft doesn't do to Process Explorer what it did to Microsoft AntiSpyware. :eek:
