Microsoft has provided the complete collection of Sysinternals tools as a single file that can be downloaded. You no longer need to download each program separately, though many people probably already have the most important analysis tools on their hard drives already.

The tools include, for instance, Autoruns, Diskmon, Filemon, Portmon, Regmon and the Process Explorer, each of which provides interesting insights into a computer's activities and the applications currently running. In addition to a number of other useful programs, the RootkitRevealer is part of the collection; as its name implies, it tracks down rootkits. Unfortunately, the Process Monitor was left out, as were other tools not used in troubleshooting, such as the bluescreen screen saver and the NotMyFault crash tool. The collection of tools at heise Security includes a number of other programs with which you can test and improve your own security.

Microsoft took over Sysinternals in July of 2006; the company was originally founded by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell. Reference:
