Sysinternals apps can now update automatically through the Microsoft Store

Sysinternals offers a wide variety of advanced system utilities that allow you to perform administrative tasks in Windows or obtain detailed information about internal operating system functions and processes.

Some of the well-known Sysinternals utilities include:

  • Process explorer – A graphical utility that lets you see which processes are running on a computer, which DLLs they have loaded, and more.
  • Process monitor – View file system, registry, processes and thread activity in real time.
  • Sysmon – Monitors system activity for various behaviors and activities, which are then logged in the Windows event log.
  • PSExec – Allows you to run commands on remote systems.
