Process Explorer from Sysinternals

I guess I never listed the Sysinternals tools here because I sort of assumed that even if you have been living under a rock while writing code you've been making use of these utilities. One of my favorites has always been the Process Explorer. It's also the one that prompted Herman to send me the following mail prompting this post...

"Hi Josh,
I just wanted to tell you that you should definitely check out Process Explorer at and feature it on your PowerToys Weblog. It's like Task Manager but as if God build it himself and replaces it neatly. It's so good, I can't even describe it. A must for everybody who opens Task Manager like a million times a day to check what process is trying to get attention.
Best regards, Hermann"

Needless to say that Hermann is probably not the only fan.  If you haven't tried it yet, you probably should.
