Check it out – SYSinternals was aquired by Microsoft and they have been slowly integrating their tools into MS OS’s.

You can find all of their tools here.

We use a lot of these on a daily basis like WHOIS and PSTools, PSMon, PageDefrag, SDelete, PSKill, Handle, and PSInfo among others. These programs make the admin’s job a lot easier. Do you use any of these? Are there better alternatives?

Post your experiences and favorite networking/security/administration tools in the comments or hit us up at info @ asktheadmin dot com. (Every time I type dot com I have a google commercial going off in my head; they sure did a good job back in 2000! dot coooooooom!)
