Strg-Alt-Entf or better known as Ctrl-Alt-Del ?

Recommended Posts

Very interesting! I just installed Process Explorer(English Link) and it looks like it could provide more useful tools. How do you find Process Explorer improves on Wndows Task Manager?

I really like it. You have to do some registry editing before it pops up at ctrl-alt-del. It saves time when I have to kill a program and want to search for the reason. It gives some more informations than just the taskmanager. And I can do some bug search before the process is killed -something like looking which registry keys are opened, which DLL's are started by the program, who is the owner, ...

But even if you want to avoid registry editing, the tool is really nice. Probably best to start it manually first and once knowing and trusting in it, do the registry edit for replacing.

I was using the wininternals(now sysinternals) tools already when I had Windows NT. And there is a helpfile in html format to learn what it can. The wininternal people did some good WindowsNT interna books, did some tools to detect root kits, and then were hired by Microsoft. Then the name changed to sysinternals and the tools went to the Microsoft technet page.

Actually.. they weren't hired by Microsoft - they were bought out by Microsoft... Slight subtle difference.
