Contributor(s): Jeremy Stanley

Windows Sysinternals is a Microsoft-owned repository for freeware utilities. The Sysinternals site contains utilities developed by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell.

Sysinternals offers programs under the following categories:

  • File and disk: Contains utilities that monitor file usage and disk status.
  • Networking: Contains applications like TCPview, which monitors TCP and UDP endpoints.
  • Process: Microsoft's most popular download, Process Explorer, which granularly monitors the files that a particular process has open, is in this category.
  • Security: RootkitRevealer, among other security-based utilities, are featured in this category.
  • System information: This category is composed of products that display general information about a workstation or server.

Admins can also download the entire suite of utilities from the Sysinternals website.
