There have been a couple updates over at the Microsoft Sysinternals site. As I have stated before, this is a key site to get to know if you are any kind of technician. It can definitely help with malware and trying to find those rouge applications. Process Explorer and Autoruns are amazing. Check it out.

What’s New (Febuary 16, 2012)

  • DebugView v4.78 This update to DebugView, a utility for capturing and logging user-mode and kernel-mode debug output messages, can now capture output generated by Metro applications on Windows 8.
  • LiveKd v5.1 LiveKd, a utility for leveraging kernel debuggers to analyze live physical systems or Hyper-V virtual machines, now supports newer Intel processors that implement the XSAVE instruction.

What’s New (January 12, 2012)

  • CoreInfo v3.03 Coreinfo, a command-line utility that dumps information about a system’s CPU topology and capabilities, now reports the presence of TSC (timestamp counter) Invariant support.
  • Process Explorer v15.12 This update to Process Explorer makes the search dialog asynchronous and reports the types of found items. It also fixes several bugs, including showing a small font when run after an older version, a bug in the restart-process functionality, working set columns not showing data, and again shows information about service processes when run from an unprivileged user account.
