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.

Another Sysinternals gem. Requires slight intelligence to use & can be most useful to see what's happening on a system - Another must have ~

One of those essential tools for any number of technical needs. Any time you need to know exactly what a process is accessing (registry, file, other I/O), this is your go to app. Of course, the sheer amount of information it collects means you will need to use filters, and know what you are doing in order to interpret the results. That is probably why there was user confusion. It is simply not a tool designed for end users, it is for technician level users and above.

-Starting this program will merely start harddisk and registry activity ad infinity by itself, thus it is worthless at actually finding out what is happening.-
Wilfried is a COMPLETE Idiot. Of course it wont do YOUR job for you, stupid ass, it's a TOOL you babbling baffoon. It is to diagnose read/writes. That is a GOOD place to start to find out what programs are causing system slow downs.
Despite what Wilfried the dork has to say, Sysinternals makes GREAT tools, no equal
Campaign to initiate deletion of stupid posts!

A very good diagnostic type app but of course to make full use of it you need to know how to use it.

RE: process monitors overhead "activity ad infinity"
The default filter settings remove "self" activity from the visable display. Yes Process Monitor has an impact as it works but the information it provides is well worth the slight impact it introduces.
RE:Process Monitor v2.92: This update adds a toolbar button that makes the process tree dialog more accessible. In order to make it easy to zoom in on a particular time range in a trace, it also introduces two quick-filter context menu items that enable you to filter out events before or after a selected event.
