    Thanks Ron! :)

    I recently watched an interview with Mark Russinovich. I still feel he is one of the brightest minds involved with Windows. He and Bryce Cogswell are still the main developers of the Sysinternals products. He himself expressed surprise that MS has allowed him the time to keep tinkering with some of the best free Windows tools available.

    A couple other interesting tidbits from the interview were that he personally interviewed for his current job at MS with Bill Gates, and that he and Gates still meet and talk about various things several times a year...

    I downloaded this and when I clicked the exe to run it I got this...

    Process Monitor warning

    The version of dbghelp.dll configured does not support the Microsft symbol server.

    Please download and install the Microsoft Debugging Tools for windows to get a version that does.

    Could someone explain this a bit for me?

    Using XP with full SP3 installed

    debugging and symbols - getting started(MS).

    ProcMon uses symbols to resolve function names when looking at certain properties.

    Dbghelp.dll in \Windows\System32 does not support the symbol service you must use the one in the Debugging Tools folder.

    In Process Monitor, click on Options>Configure Symbols. Change the Dbghelp.dll path to reference the one in the debugging tools folder.
