Every trade has their favorite tool, whether it be a hammer, calculator, or stethoscope. For me, one of my top tools is Process Monitor. I use it like a handy man uses duct tape. With it I can easily troubleshoot access denied errors, files not found, strange path redirection, and many other unexpected behavior situations.
Talking about duct tape, I just noticed that it can even be used to cure warts! But I digress.
In this week’s video I show off how easy Process Monitor is to troubleshoot various disk and registry related issues. Within the first 4 minutes of the video I cover a complete end to end troubleshooting situation. Then I dig in deeper on many of the other features.
Process Monitor is a free, tiny, fast, stable, powerful, and easy tool that every Windows administrator should become familiar with.
