Anyone who has ever worked in I.T. knows the name Mark Russinovich (and might even have a little alter set up in his honor).
Thanks to his toolset dubbed Sysinternals
, I.T. Pros and other tech enthusiasts have had access to a large number of utilities for managing, troubleshooting, and diagnosing Windows systems and applications. But like many I.T. tools, Sysinternals utilities were downloaded and run from the command-line. Well, not anymore! Now, a new service called Sysinternals Live
has launched which allows you to run the commands from any internet-connected PC. The directory is simply a list of these tools as an HTML file
. To use any tool, you can just click on the hyperlinked file name to run it or you can type in the UNC path \\live.sysinternals.com\tools\<toolname>. Those of you who understood what that means, you may now commence your happy dance. Everyone else, just smile and nod.
