If you have not used their tools before, I highly recommend taking a stroll over to www.sysinternals.com

They have just released updates to Process Monitor, Autoruns, Disk Usage, and Process Explorer

Here are some of the highlights:

Process Monitor v2.03: This update to Process Monitor, a real-time file, registry, process and network monitor, adds the ability to import and export configuration settings, shows an icon in the operations column depicting the event class of the operation, and fixes a symbol configuration bug on Windows XP.

Autoruns v9.36: Autoruns changes the Hide Microsoft Entries to only hide Windows entries, fixes a bug in the Find behavior, allows enabling and disabling entries using the space bar, and fixes a number of minor bugs

Disk Usage v1.33: Du adds a new option, -u, that has it exclude duplicate hard-linked files from its summary.

Process Explorer v11.31: This update works around a bug in the latest Debugging Tools for Windows debug engine DLL and fixes a bug that could cause objects to show up as when Process Explorer was run without administrative rights.

My personal favorite is ProcessMonitor. It has so many uses I find myself running it at least once a week. Want to see what files a program has open? ProcessMonitor can do it. See what DLLs a program uses…again a job for ProcessMonitor. Like I said, check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

On a side note, I will be posting information soon about a beta for Remote Control 3.1 soon. Keep an eye on the blog for details

Thanks for the tip Steve. One of my favorite from Sysinternals is Desktop Switcher. It was released earlier this year, and lets you have virtual desktops:
