This is a must have tool for those who have used SysInternals Regmon or Filemon: Process Monitor from MS (developed by sysinterals people i think after they joined MS).

Quote
Process Monitor is an advanced monitoring tool for Windows that shows real-time file system, Registry and process/thread activity. It combines the features of two legacy Sysinternals utilities, Filemon and Regmon, and adds an extensive list of enhancements including rich and non-destructive filtering, comprehensive event properties such session IDs and user names, reliable process information, full thread stacks with integrated symbol support for each operation, simultaneous logging to a file, and much more. Its uniquely powerful features will make Process Monitor a core utility in your system troubleshooting and malware hunting toolkit.

Great program. It's a must have if you need to track down rogue processes.

Too bad they're not porting over the sysinternals source code section, as well as some of the "smaller" apps, to the new MS home. Knew there'd be a catch.

Process Monitor has been there since long before Microsoft bought Sysinternals.  One thing I wish they would do is combine those monitor tools into one, FileMon, RegMon, ProcMon and DiskMon (raw disk access monitor, not file based like FileMon).  That would be cool.

And they should NOT combine anything with Process Explorer - would make it too big & bloated.

I just had a very nasty experience the other day. I was working on a minor bugfix for Notepad++ and wanted to track down some file activity. Started the new process monitor, added some filter, started notepad++ in debug mode in vs.net2005... and *b00m*, my system locked up. I could still move windows around and a few of them still repainted, but couldn't launch new processes, couldn't terminate anything, etc. System wouldn't even shut down, so I ended up having to do a hardboot Sad

Doh!  How did I get ProcessExplorer and ProcessMonitor mixed up?!?  Not like the names are similar or anything. Damn Microsoft, I blame them.
