Sysinternals : What’s New (June 6, 2012)

Process Explorer v15.2 has been released. Check out below on what’s new!

This major update to Process Explorer, a Task Manager replacement, merges Autoruns functionality by adding a new Autostart Location column and property to the process and DLL views that indicates where an image is configured to automatically start or load. It also adds .NET stack walking support to the thread stack dialog, adds a process timeline column that graphically depicts a process’s lifetime relative other processes, and uses the Windows 8 private ETW logger which enables better coexistence with other ETW-based tools.

This is one of my favorite applications to use against malware, or just when I want to know what’s going on with my system. Now that they have incorporated Autoruns it will be even more powerful.

If you havent noticed Windows 8 uses a modified process explorer as its new task manager!
