Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Sysinternals Process Monitor: New Sysinternals Tool!

#1 Post by ClausValca » Tue Nov 07, 2006 5:59 pm

New tool offered by the fine folks formerly known as Sysinternals:

Process Monitor v1.0: ... nitor.mspx


"Process Monitor is an advanced monitoring tool for Windows that shows real-time file system, Registry and process/thread activity. It combines the features of two legacy Sysinternals utilities, Filemon and Regmon, and adds an extensive list of enhancements including rich and non-destructive filtering, comprehensive event properties such session IDs and user names, reliable process information, full thread stacks with integrated symbol support for each operation, simultaneous logging to a file, and much more. Its uniquely powerful features will make Process Monitor a core utility in your system troubleshooting and malware hunting toolkit."

"Process Monitor runs on Windows 2000 SP4 with Update Rollup 1, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Vista as well as x64 versions of Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista."

It seems to unpack, run and execute very similar to Process Explorer. Thus it can be ported easily and doesn't seem to make any more demands on registry entries than Process Explorer does. Shouldn't be too difficult to consider "portable" but I haven't thoroughly vetted it with with RegWatcher yet.

Looks to be very useful. I've enjoyed playing with it this afternoon at work.

Can you search for Handles, etc with it? Or better yet, have you noticed anything that Process Explorer does that this doesn't do?
