The Sysinternals Troubleshooting Utilities have been rolled up into a single Suite of tools

Mark Russinovich the guy who revealed to the world that Sony CDs had that nasty rootkit installed has made available a single suite of tools for download. These tools are a must have for every single windows developer.

The Sysinternals Troubleshooting Utilities have been rolled up into a single Suite of tools. This file contains the individual troubleshooting tools and help files. It does not contain non-troubleshooting tools like the BSOD Screen Saver or NotMyFault.

Here is what is included:

• AccessChk

PSKill was just flagged by AVAST as a Trojan Horse.

Is AVAST mistaken or is PSKill unsafe ??
