Windows Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell have released a new version of a real-time process monitor for Windows (tentatively called 'Process Monitor') that combines the features of Regmon and Filemon. There is a whole set of new features too, of course.

Good Tool

I've been using this tool (during the limited time I spend in Windows) for some months now, and I highly recommend to any power user. It's great - you can even replace the classic Task Manager, so when you do the three finger salute (ctrl+alt+del), up comes this much more useful and informative tool.

It may not have all the features of the CLI tools available to pretty much any *Nix, but it's definetly a step up.

You're thinking of Process Explorer, to be found at

The post is about Process Monitor. Similar names, different tools with different purposes.

Oh wow, you're right - I have been completely fooled. Same look, same source, same group of people, no less.

Though I will withdraw my recommendation for 'Process Monitor', as I have never used it, I will now extend my recommendation for 'Process Explorer'.

They do serve somewhat similar purposes, though, and have a similar look and are by the same people, so I wouldn't really say that they are 'different tools with different purposes'. An honest mistake?
