Process Monitor - say goodbye to FileMon and RegMon
If I were to tell you that there's a new utility that combines the benefit of both FileMon and RegMon, and aces them both, you'd be right to be skeptical, unless of course the new tool came from the same stable. Well there you have it, Sysinternals, newly under the Microsoft umbrella, have re-written these tools, and simultaneously combined and enhanced them.
It's worth the upgrade just to get file and registry activity interleaved in the same view.
You are hereby ordered to immediately download Process Monitor and put it on your USB stick.
