    This How-To Geek School series will teach you how to Use SysInternals Tools Like a Pro, and even the most hard-core geeks will probably learn something new. Join us as we take a deep dive into SysInternals.

    Lesson 1: What Are the SysInternals Tools and How Do You Use Them?
    This How-To Geek School series will teach you how to use SysInternals tools like a pro, so your geek cred will never be in question. Not that we are questioning your geek skills. You do use SysInternals tools, right?

    Lesson 2: Understanding Process Explorer
    This lesson in our Geek School series covers Process Explorer, perhaps the most used and useful application in the SysInternals toolkit. But how well do you really know this utility?

    Lesson 3: Using Process Explorer to Troubleshoot and Diagnose
    Understanding how Process Explorer’s dialogs and options work is all fine and good, but what about using it for some actual troubleshooting or to diagnose a problem? Today’s Geek School lesson will try and help you learn how to do just that.

    Lesson 4: Understanding Process Monitor
    Today in this edition of Geek School we’re going to teach you about how the Process Monitor utility allows you to peek under the hood and see what your favorite applications are really doing behind the scenes — what files they are accessing, the registry keys they use, and more.

    Lesson 5: Using Process Monitor to Troubleshoot and Find Registry Hacks
    In today’s edition of Geek School we’re going to teach you how to use Process Monitor to actually accomplish troubleshooting and figuring out registry hacks that you would not know about otherwise.

    I like sigcheck also, nice VT-scanner included, example below scans Progam Files folder and all its subfolders. You have to confirm the VT usage screen only once

    @echo off

    "[Where You Install It]\sigcheck.exe" -e -s -u -vr "C:\Program Files"

    pause
