Sysinternals Miscellaneous Utilities

AD Explorer
Active Directory Explorer is an advanced Active Directory (AD) viewer and editor.

AdRestore
Restore tombstoned Active Directory objects in Server 2003 domains.

Autologon
Bypass password screen during logon.

BgInfo
This fully-configurable program automatically generates desktop backgrounds that include important information about the system including IP addresses, computer name, network adapters, and more.

BlueScreen
This screen saver not only accurately simulates Blue Screens, but simulated reboots as well (complete with CHKDSK), and works on Windows NT 4, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Server 2003 and higher.

Ctrl2cap
This is a kernel-mode driver that demonstrates keyboard input filtering just above the keyboard class driver in order to turn caps-locks into control keys. Filtering at this level allows conversion and hiding of keys before NT even "sees" them. Ctrl2cap also shows how to use NtDisplayString() to print messages to the initialization blue-screen.

DebugView
Another first from Sysinternals: This program intercepts calls made to DbgPrint by device drivers and OutputDebugString made by Win32 programs. It allows for viewing and recording of debug session output on your local machine or across the Internet without an active debugger.

Desktops
This new utility enables you to create up to four virtual desktops and to use a tray interface or hotkeys to preview what’s on each desktop and easily switch between them.

Hex2dec
Convert hex numbers to decimal and vice versa.

PsLogList
Dump event log records.

PsTools
The PsTools suite includes command-line utilities for listing the processes running on local or remote computers, running processes remotely, rebooting computers, dumping event logs, and more.

RegDelNull
Scan for and delete Registry keys that contain embedded null-characters that are otherwise undeleteable by standard Registry-editing tools.

Registry Usage (RU)
View the registry space usage for the specified registry key.

RegJump
Jump to the registry path you specify in Regedit.

Strings
Search for ANSI and UNICODE strings in binary images.

ZoomIt
Presentation utility for zooming and drawing on the screen.
