Once again, I present you with a Sysinternals update. Autoruns has been updated to v1.1. Autoruns is my favorite application to help in the battle against malware/spyware. For those who aren’t familiar wth Autoruns, it kind of like the startup tab in msconfig on steroids!
This update to Autoruns, a GUI and command-line tool that lists executables configured to run when you boot, logon or run common applications, adds a “jump to folder” command and several additional autostart locations. The command-line version, Autorunsc, adds a new switch to show file hashes and an option to display the autostart entries for all user accounts registered on a system.
As well as an Introduction to Windows Azure.

Mark’s highly-related BUILD sessions are now available for on-demand viewing. In Introduction to Windows Azure: The Cloud OS, Mark defines cloud computing, presents the different types and positions Windows Azure. Then he describes Windows Azure’s implementation of Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), including how it makes it easy for developers to write highly-available, highly-scalable cloud applications. In Inside Windows Azure: The Cloud OS, Mark goes deeper than ever before to show Microsoft’s datacenter architecture and explain the steps Windows Azure follows to deploy and runs cloud applications. He concludes by revealing how the Windows Azure team develops and operates Windows Azure.
