Sysinternals Suite: All Sysinternals Tools in One Pack

toolboxWindows Sysinternals supplies users with numerous free utilities to manage, diagnose, troubleshoot and monitor a Windows environment, most of which are being actively developed by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell. Many popular programs like Process Explorer - an advanced version of Windows Task Manager, Autoruns - an advanced manager of startup applications, RootkitRevealer - a rootkit detection utility, PageDefrag – a defragmenter tool for Windows pagefile and many more are all part of Sysinternals utilities.

There are over 65 tools developed and released under Windows Sysinternals. To make it easier for users to download them, they have been rolled up into a single Suite of tools called the Sysinternals Suite.

This 12.6 MB download contains individual troubleshooting tools and help files of 67 Sysinternals tools, except non-troubleshooting tools like the BSOD Screen Saver or NotMyFault.

Below is the complete list of all tools under the latest Sysinternals Suite released on May 3, 2011.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event.
