Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Sami Laiho Welcome to my course, Troubleshooting Processes with Sysinternals Process Explorer. I'm a Senior Technical Fellow at my own company, called Adminize. The biggest problem with many admins' troubleshooting Windows is that they use task manager. Task Manager has multiple problems and even can't see what's running in Windows so it can never know what's wrong. To get a real picture of what's happening in your operating system, you need to get the most-downloaded tool of the Sysinternals toolkit, Process Explorer. It is the most important tool for admins but yet, no real training is dedicated to it until now. Some of the major topics that we will cover include, how to find troubled processes and threads in Windows, how to find performance bottlenecks in Windows, how to find malware in Windows and how to get rid of them. By the end of this course, you'll know how to effectively use the most important troubleshooting tool available. Before beginning the course, you should have viewed the first course on this learning path on the Sysinternals toolkit on Pluralsight. I hope you'll join me on this Troubleshooting Processes with Sysinternals Process Explorer course at Pluralsight.
