Microsoft offers Sysinternals utilities Live

Posted by David Hunter at 2:04 PM ET.

Ed Bott breaks the news that the Sysinternals utilities which Microsoft acquired with the Winternals Software company back in 2006 and continued to make available for free are now available as a beta in "Live" form. This means that you can execute them directly from the Internet without going through a download and installation:

Simply enter a tool’s Sysinternals Live path into Windows Explorer or a command prompt as \\\tools\<toolname> or view the entire Sysinternals Live tools directory in a browser at [and click on the link for the utility you want].

I’m glad Microsoft finally found something new and useful to put under the Live brand, and while these utilities are likely to only appeal to hardcore techies, it’s the thought that counts.
