Default Windows Sysinternals (utilities)

I stumbled onto Windows Sysinternals, and after staring at it for awhile I think this is something I used to know about. Or, at least, I have a memory of Process Explorer. We might have even discussed it here back in Csi days.

Anyway, I ran Process Explorer. It has a way to submit the running process files to https://www.virustotal.com, and display the results within the interface. I think it also allows you to launch to online removal tools, but I didn't try that. This feature will not find rootkits, files that are not running, and even some that are. For example, I had several instances where it could not find the file behind the process. But still, fun to have. It even showed my favorite gadfly, GWX.exe, which keeps throwing Windows 10 upgrade ads at me. I guess I could rename the file, but in the same folder is GWXDetector.exe, which might pounce on me if I try ;-).
