  • Hello, robbinma.

    I would like to say thanks a lot for taking the pain of writing a guide for non-geeks, i.e. for the majority of computer users.

    Let me add a minor correction nonetheless:
    It requires administrative privileges to use.

    Actually, not quite correct. You may run P.E. as a normal user as well. Just in this case, procexp100.sys will not be loaded, and you will not be able to use P.E. to view all details related to Windows system processes.

    Thanks for the response. I have started a new thread here http://forum.sysinternals.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=11044&PID=49349#49349 to discuss this.
     
    will update the document in a couple of days when I have finished something else off.

  • may I suggest  tacking on these video references as well:
     
    There's nothing better than seeing Mark and David Solomon presentations on them.

  • TODO:
    Add in reference to TestLimits.exe and the possibly a reference to the sample chapter in Inside Windows about file systems etc....
     
     
    Also add in the references/corrections from the people above.

  • Query for the moderators...
    Is it worth making this sticky so it is visible for new users?
    I thought it was but perhaps my last edit changed that.
     
    Thanks

  • Hi, robbina.

    Done. Made sticky again.

    Maybe the old forum software bug still exists: if a normal user edits the initial post in a sticky thread created by himself, then the thread will no longer be sticky.

    Thanks for investing your time and effort in explaining P.E. to non-techies.

  • So, are the files listed in the first post the latest files?

  • Hi John,
     
    As the last updated stamp on the post is 2007-12-31, and as the URLs for the uploaded files include that date, I would expect that the files listed in the first post are the latest that Mark (robbinma) has made available.

  • This posting is just to confirm Molotov's posting that the links in the first post ARE the links to the latest copy of the documentation.

    If you have any queries about the guide then feel free to post them or send me a PM.
     
    Note to the moderators - you may need to make this thread sticky again.

  • I just wanted to make sure as that is almost 4 months ago now....but in retrospect I should have looked at when the topic was first started :P

    At any rate, thanks for the replies, fellowes!

  • Hi, robbina.

    You are right. Tennisboy's request should have gone here: ** Feature Requests **.
    Moreover the same feature request has been posted there more than once.

    <Added>
    Tennisboy's request has been moved into a separate thread: Feature request: network usage (reloaded)
